Spring has sprung!

I know know that I've said that, we're going to get a huge snowfall! It's sunny outside today, and that's what counts right now I guess.  Yesterday was a bit of a drama day, sadly my elderly neighbor was found  dead on the front walkway of their house. She had an apartment upstairs from her daughter and family. It seems that she either fell or jumped out of the window. What added insult to injury for the family, was probably the 3 squad cars that stayed from late afternoon until almost 9pm, and the fact that the bright orange tarp covering her body stayed unmanned on the walkway for all that time.Today I'm trying to shake the shock and sadness that crept in yesterday.

So let's celebrate the sunshine today with a layout I did on the week-end for the Jillibean Soup sketch challenge. I may enter this one for the Tombow challenge too  seeing as that's 99.9% my glue of choice all the time.

here's the sketch:    

and here's my page:

Materials used: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
