Elisabeth Bell's World April/May challenge!!

Well another eventful day in the life of Alethea.. Last night I went to get some groceries from the supermarket and on the way home got hit by a car and to top the night off the car drove off so I have to pay the excess on my insurance!! So it ended up being an expensive shopping trip.. I've had headaches all day wondering if I could have done something differently but at the end of the day my main concern was my kids. I had the choice of stopping my car in the middle of a bridge in peak hour traffic or quickly driving to the next intersection and turning around so I did the latter but by then the car that had hit me had gone!! Anyway, there is no point dwelling on it I know but it is still bothering me!!! And me and the boys are fine, just damage to the car thankfully!!

Anyway, today brings the start of a new ElĂ­sabeth Bell's World Challenge - "Spring is in the Air"so we want to see lots of flowers and spring time colours!!!
I used Little Rapunzel which you can get from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection along with many more adorable images!!!
I followed the Mojo Monday sketch and got a chance to use up some of my scraps. I coloured Little Rapunzel in with Tria markers. The sentiment is also an Elisabeth Bell stamp from WOJ from the 2010 Spring Kit!! To finish off the card I added flowers and kindyglitz!!!Head on over to the EBW Challenge Blog and check out what the rest of the DT have created!!
