Signs of the Time LO

I haven't had much scrapping time today but I did get the chance to make one Spring layout.  This is my Signs of the Time LO.     

Last week I won Top Chef at Cooking with Cricut and won a free Digi Stamp!  I have to admit that I've never used Digi Stamps before.  I didn't even know if I would because I didn't have a functional printer.  Well, guess what...I sat up all night last night and got our printer to work with my laptop just so I could play with this Digi!  I wish I would not have done it on the first night of Daylight Savings Time but it is working!!  My coloring skills are a little rusty (I spend most of my time coloring with crayons these days) but I love how cute this little guy is!!

For the CWC challenge there needs to be a time piece on my project so I cut out the months of Spring from a calendar and popped them up on the sides of the title.  I cut the title from a scrap piece of tie dyed looking paper.  I love how it turned out!

This is the first and last time I've ever used Walk in My Garden.  I borrowed it from a friend so it is not loaded in my gypsy (definetly a cart you need the gypsy for)!  The flowers are so cute but they have so many pieces that need cut in different colors!

I can't wait for Spring so I can get some great pics of the girls out in the flower bed!!
