13 - Waiting for Spring

Hi Fellow Suspects and Detectives. To celebrate Spring (and in some parts of the world, Spring has just sprung, I created a layout of my poor flower pot just waiting for a summertime bloom.

The evidence is found this week, included:
1. Make/Use a pinwheel.
This was super fun to make. I've never tried making one before, and was surprised by how easy it was to make one.
2. Use string, yarn, fiber or twine.
I used both twine and a bread twist tie. I love to recycle and re-purpose household items.

For my journaling, I used the prompt of writing one central idea and four supporting details/examples. I wrote 4 different types of definations for the word Spring.

For close-ups of my layout and journaling, please visit my blog.

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by.

Using string for a frame for you photo...genius!  I have tons of string laying around.  Thanks for giving me another use for it!  Love that pinwheel as well!

Love, love, love. The twine as a frame--genius. Love the stamping and your pinwheel. So many awesome details so perfectly placed, as always!
