To Every Thing there is a Season…Spring/Day 1

In the King James version of the Bible, there is a passage from Ecclesiastes 3 ~

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity
under the heavens…”

I used this verse as my inspiration to create an unique visual of what it means to me.  I chose my CountryScapes Apple Tree as the focal point of depicting the four seasons.  Today, I’m starting with Spring, but each day this week I’ll do a different season and on Friday I will show you  the finish project I’ve done with a lovely Give-Away.  If you post a comment on any of the following days, you will be entered.

Egg~trodinary Spring Bouquet

“That is one good thing about

this world…there are always sure

to be more springs.”

~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

I love Spring!  New life, new beginnings, and especially for those who experience long, cold winters, a welcome sign that warm weather is on its way.  I’m seeing signs here in my yard; Robins, daffodils popping up, and even some flowering trees in bloom.  Yep, there are always sure to be more springs!

Today’s project is somewhat whimsical with Violets (Pansies) in an egg, but, for me, it’s also memorable.  One Easter, my Dad gave my mother a “sugared egg” with a lovely bouquet inside and I couldn’t resist replicating this starting with Joset Designs Easter Egg done in Silk Microfine Glitter (not sugar:-D) and my Garden Notes Pansy.  I encompassed the egg with my Round Grapevine Wreath, Leafy Branches, White Lilacs, and some colorful branches, covered with Plum Crazy Prills.  The bouquet is set on Graphic 45’s “Children’s Hour” collection and ECD’s Soft Finish Duo Cardstock in Dusky Lavender and could easily stay as a card or the recipient could frame it in a shadow box for a true keepsake.
