Spring means flowers, showers, wind, pollen & allergy season! LOL But I love the warmer weather, longer daylight hours.

The scalloped album is adorable. Thanks for sharing this project. What makes me think of spring?? Yellow daffodils showing their pretty faces in front of my old rock wall.


Love it!! I want to make one


I love this book - it's so beautifully springy! The things that make me think of spring are daffodils and crocus flowers, and of course rain boots for jumping in puddles with my kids on rainy days. :)
