A Smile as Sweet as Spring

Stacy here with my April Spring Fling project for Scrap Our Stash that I want to share with you.  
As you probably know we recently got back from our Spring Break vacation to the beach in southern California. The weather was good for most of our trip but there were a couple of cool and windy days.

It didn't stop us from having fun though. I took this photo of my daughter while she was building a sand castle on the beach. This was one of those not so great days and it was super windy.  When she looked up at me her hair was just flying.   It cracked me up so I quickly took a photo. 

I used pattern paper from Doodlebug Designs in a spring value pack of goodies that I had in my stash. I used some embellies from the Echo Park Splash kit also from my stash.  I actually worked on this while we were on Spring Break so I was limited in what I had to work with on the layout.

I have been taking the 28 Sketches class at Big Pictures Classes and I took my inspiration from one of the many sketches we are working with this month. 

Do you guys take any online classes??  I have recently been taking quite a few classes.  My favorite one has been the Creative Chemistry class over at OnlineCardClasses.  Best class EVER!!

I recommend it to any and everyone.  You can still go take it now, you just won't have Tim online everyday answering your questions.  But I think we asked enough questions that if you have any issues you can find easily find the answer. 
I want to let you all know that TOMORROW Crafter's Companion is having a Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!!  It ends on Sunday, April 22nd at midnight PST.  It is going to be fun and there are going to be some really awesome prizes that you won't want to miss out on possibly winning.  So stop back over here tomorrow and join in the HOP!  The HOP starts here!

ALSO, today is the last day to enter to try to win the SWALK stamp set being given away on the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge Blog (US residents only).  Go over there and leave a comment after you are finished here.

AND FINALLY...I want you guys to get to working on your April Mother's Day projects for the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge blog!   The month is zipping by and it will be over before you know it.  I'm still waiting to see all of your awesome projects over there.  Help a sister out!!! lol
