Spain 2000

Hello Again...
Its been lovely weather here for the last couple of days - SPRING HAS SPRUNG.  The birds are singing and the flowers are blooming (the weeds are blooming even faster, but that's life!).  My son's orphan lambs are joyous... skipping, jumping and enjoying their happy (all be it short) little lives.  Life is great, life is beautiful and life is wonderful...
...or is it?
Well, yes it is... but you know, we wouldn't be human if we didn't have a moan! I know I should be happy to see spring all around me, to finally feel the warmth of the sun and to... at last smell the roses...
BUT, yes here it comes...
I'm gonna let you fill in the rest, 'cause me?  I really am happy and have absolutely nothing to moan about (I could, but I'm not going to - must be something in the air!  I don't feel like ranting about life's unfairness at the moment, so I'm not going to).  I'm just happy to be breathing (not must fun if you're not -LOL), so for today I'm not moaning and I am going to celebrate the arrival of spring!
I made is scrapbook page (I'm steadily getting through a lot of my old photos), using my SCRAPTASTIC April Kit 'LET ME GO' and a picture I found of my son.  Its a precious memory of the time we spend with my father (now deceased) at his villa in Spain, and it has now been preserved in pride of place within our scrapbooking album.

For this layout I followed the sketch with the SCRAPTASTIC blog, for the April Challenge...
I hope you like it... I do!
