Spring Fling Challenge #6

Here is my take on Scraptivity's Spring Fling Challenge #6.

I used this photo that I took last Saturday on our family farm...Spring time means: planting season. I love gardening, and we certainly enjoy all the vegetables we grow...our potatoes lasted till now, delicious fingerling were the BEST. I also put tons of green and yellow beans in the freezer and still have some. Oh, and my tasty roasted tomatoes sauce......
The first thing to come up was spinach , asparagus, and some onions this year.
I am looking forward to a busy weekend planting potatoes and onions. :)
So this picture was just so perfect to work with for this challenge. I hope you like mu Haiku poem too I wrote for the layout.

Products I used:Chocolate cardstock CTMH, Sweet Leaf Cardstock CTMH, Grey Wool Cardstock CTMH,Songbird paper stack, Hearfelt Die-cuts ( felt) CTMH, jillibean SOUP Corrugated Alphas in green and white, Coffee sleeve for brown alpahas I cut out :) , Recollections Ribbon trim, Tombo Adhesive.

Thanks for looking and have a fab day!

Twilight/New Moon Movie Party

Yes, I got pressured into reading The Twilight Saga.... :) I am actually on the last of the four books. I have to say so far Breaking Dawn is my favourite one. As much as I love reading, relaxing with a good book I found it exhausting.... hehehe I do not get stuff done since all I do is read ( well...I have not been around here posting my layouts and cards right... ?! )

How do you like this awesome cardboard "poster" I have? I love it. And I am going to bring it to a girls day out-movie day to be exact this coming Saturday. We are planning to watch Twilight and New Moon. And yes we decided to go ahead and order a photo cake as well,with Jacob, Bella and Edward on it. I will be back to let you know how I liked the movies and of course the cake.

Take Care,
