My page for the Color Challenge on the DD Blog was inspired by the pretty colors chosen by Connie. Also, the photos for my layout immediately came to mind when I saw the red umbrellas image that inspired Connie. I had smocked and sewn this little suit for our then three year old grandson for Easter and later created the “duck & umbrella” cut-up to use on his Easter card. Thanks, Connie for inspiring to get this memory scrapped!

Journaling: James, you, Mitchell, your mommy & daddy came to our house for a few days this week. You are three years old and have so much fun playing in the yard and in the swimming pool. You seem to have fun no matter what is going on! These photos were made on Sunday afternoon after church, so you were all dressed up in the Easter outfit, which I made for you this year.
