….makes me smile. The thought of warm weather, seeing green all around and pretty blue skies sounds ever-so lovely.

So when I saw this gorgeous spread from Layle, it was like a brush of fresh air. (And boy do we need fresh air ’round these parts with the icky inversion we get each winter).

If you’re in the same boat Layle and I both are–living in Utah and all–take a gander at this and dream of great things to come.

Beautiful, yes?

Here’s what Layle has to say:

January and February in Utah are two of the dreariest months around!  It’s cold, lots of snow and overcast most of the time.  I put this pocket page spread together from last May to remind myself that spring will eventually get here & we’ll have sunshine, green grass and flowers in bloom.

I used several stacked words in my spread, both from the This & That Spring (Just Shapes) kit.  The first one I adhered over a close up photo of a tree in our backyard.  I wanted the ‘Hello Spring’ design to fit the full 3×4 pocket, so I sized the width to 3″, unchecked ‘ ‘lock aspect ratio’ and set my height to 4″ and voila – perfect to fit in the pocket.  To make it a bit easier to slide in the pocket, I first adhered it with small glue dots to a 3×4 piece of acetate, that way it maintained its shape when I slid it in to the pocket.

Now I’m off to find my own bit of sunshine.
