Spring is in the Air

Less than a week after being hit by the blizzard that went on to pummel the East Coast, we are experiencing a bit of a spring thaw here in the Midwest. Highs are expected to be in the 50s by the end of the week. Practically bathing suit weather, joked my neighbor. She’s only half kidding.

The weather roller coaster got me thinking about creating an early spring scrapbook layout. It would be a good way to use the photos I snapped of the record snowfall. I could then juxtapose those with snapshots I take later this week of the massive thaw. To further embellish the page I could use one of the following spring-themed quotes. You could also use these famous sayings as ways to spice up a traditional spring-themed layout:
