Earth Day, Layout & Card...

Happy Earth Day everyone! I'm not a big environmentalist or anything but it seems like that's all I've heard about today. ;) I do my part in regards to recycling, putting trash where it belongs (it REALLY bugs me when people just throw their trash wherever it lands, UGH!), keeping the lights off when they're not needed, running my dishwasher in the evening and things like that not to mention a general respect for nature. Have you seen Google's Earth Day image this year? I love it! The blues and greens, sea life, water and trees! I just wanna take a swim in it! ;)



I have a couple things to share that I created a couple weeks ago. Some of you may have already seen them here or there, but for those who haven't, here they are. First up is a layout for my *Ad/Art Inspired Challenge over at Citrus Tree Studio. I found the following advertisement and loved it's randomness as well as the clouds, rainbow and birds! I felt inspired right when I saw it! *Come on over and join in the challenges! We'd love to have you!



My inspired layout: I used photos of my sister jumping in my in-laws pool almost 4 years ago, but they reminded me how ready I am for summer!



I also made a card from my sister and I that we set up on my mom's kitchen island with a bunch of tulips for when she got home from surgery a couple weeks ago. :)



Hope you're all having a wonderful Wednesday wherever you are! It's turned into a beautiful, sunny day here even though it's a bit chilly. Looking forward to 70's and 80's starting tomorrow and into the weekend!
Thanks for coming by!

Cute projects, Nicole! Love the bright colors. I think your inspiration piece is very cool and love the page you created from it. And the card is fabulous.
We're supposed to be climbing up into the upper 70's into the low 80's by the weekend, too. Can't wait!
