Spring Succulents

It finally is starting to feel like spring here! After a record setting snowfall for the month of April it has started to warm up! So today I did some planting. 
I made this window box last fall, and decided to plant it up and add a fun wreath and banner to it! 
The wreath is made from burlap & moss. I hand stamped the little pennant banner with acrylic paint and rubber stamps.

My mom owns a greenhouse, so it was fun planting up this little guys!

I attached the wreath and pennant with some old fashion number tacks! 

I think this was an old colander for some sort, I used moss and dirt to plan in this one. It already has the perfect drainage built in! 

Have an old rusty pail? Plant it!!! It works great for succulents! 

Happy Spring everyone!!

digital scrapbooking? YES!

For the first time ever I went scrapbooking this weekend with my friends and I had nothing for anyone to steal! I usually am the one that brings everything, but not this weekend. I armed myself with my laptop, photoshop, and many digital kits! I still have a lot to learn, but so far I am really enjoying it! I was afraid I would miss all the "stuff" but I didn't at all. I didn't miss packing it, hauling it, or using it!

I am not sure where I will have my pages printed yet, I may try making a shutterfly book using only 12 x 12 layouts. Does anyone out there have suggestions of where to make the books now that the pages are are done??

Here are a few of my favs:

I forgot to mention how it was killing me to scrap these pages this weekend, I live in northern MN and we have had 20 inches of snow so far this APRIL and we are currently in the midddle of another storm as I write this, 6-10 more!

So what do you prefer? Traditional or digital scrapin? If digital, I would love to know any good sites or tips!!!
