Alright, so on to my project.
I am a very bad hopper this month. 
I have been more than a little preoccupied with life and didn't read the hopping directions.
I saw "home grown" and I ran with it. 
Unfortunately I ran in the wrong direction. 
Instead of flowers and gardens I did a fair layout. 
After all what else screams "home grown" more than a county fair?!
So here is my offering this month.
I know it was not what was asked for but I hope you enjoy it!!



I absolutely love the fair!!
And the goats by far are my favorite!!
So with a little Simple Stories and my Cricut this is what I created.


Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you enjoyed my hopping mistake :)

UP next is Alicia
Here's our amazing line up in case you get lost:

Connie Can Crop Monthly Challenge

Hello All!!
It's that time again for 
Connie Can Crop's Monthly Challenge!!
This months challenge is an inspiration.


Take a look at the picture below. 
Your challenge is to create something inspired 
by this beautiful spring day.


After some deep thought,
this is what I was inspired to create.


As usual I created using only scraps from my bin.
I really enjoyed making this thank you card. 
It reminds me of spring in Valley.
If you have seen my post from April,
spring and tulips are a pretty big deal.

If you would like to play along with this fun little challenge

We would love to see what you create!!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Today my sweet little niece Brynlee turns 2!!
She is so stinking cute!!


So using my Cricut I created this happy little card.

Not sure if I like it. 
But it turned out OK.


Anyways happy birthday baby girl!!

A Little Spring For Easter

As promised last month, 
here is a little more spring for you all!!

Tulip Time!!
Always a big deal in the valley!!
People literally come from miles and miles 
to see all the tulips that our little valley has to offer!!
This is one of my all time favorite tulip pictures from my collection. 


It really is beautiful this time of year!
If you are ever in Washington in the spring you don't want to miss this!

Here is a layout using some 2016 pictures

Again I like to go simple. 
I don't like to take away from the photos.


And this little tulip here is the first time ever 
cutting and writing an image on my Cricut!!
I love it!!

Happy Easter everyone!! 
Thanks again for stopping by!!

Welcome to Connie Can Crop's Monthly Challenge!
This month's theme is "Reuse Reduce Recycle"

The sky's the limit!

For my project I made a birthday for my boss
using nothing but scraps from my bin.

His birthday, you may have noticed was in March, 
but I saved it for my challenge post.


My boss and I are huge fans of the Walking Dead
I found this fabulous zombie arm using Cricut Access

Which I certainly do!!

Spring in the Valley!!

Happy Spring!!
Where I live spring time is a magical time!!
We have tulip and daffodil fields for days!!
Every year my bestie and I wander the fields and take pictures for hours. 
It is the perfect way to start the season!!

It's simple yet bold!
I love the blue with the yellow flowers.
It really makes them pop!

Happy Birthday Boss

Happy Birthday to my awesome boss

Happy Saint Patty's Day!

My boss is an amazing person who I'm pretty sure literally has everything. 
This year for his birthday I decided to make him
 a mini album for his desk at work, 
because what else do you get the man who has everything?

Using my usual Echo Park here is my bosses mini album.
Hope you enjoy!!
