The last day of April...and it's almost over!

As I write this at 11 p.m. on April 30th, I have to say, "Where did April go?"  What a whirlwind month!  I wanted to share with you my April collage for Colors of 2013 with Eva Ricci Studio.  I had to redo two of my images, since I lost the original files due to a corrupt hard drive :(  But, here it is...

You can view all the beautiful "White" images done by the other talented ladies in the group from this month here: http://www.karriedrakeblog.com/2013/04/colors-of-2013-april-in-white_30.html.  Enjoy!!

Flash Challenge Treasury Winner!!

Last Saturday, I was pronounced the Flash Challenge Treasury winner for our weekly challenge in my Etsy Team, Team Jabez.  I was ELATED that my treasury was chosen!  And honored to have the opportunity to have my items as the inspiration pieces for this weeks flash treasury challenge.  This is the treasury (inspired by Dianna Wood's, Hand Painted Mules) that I created that won last weeks challenge:

Made you look...

This month is "White" for the Colors of 2013 with Eva Ricci Studio...and my dear cat, Maria, fits the bill...well, half of her does ;)  She was enjoying the sunshine yesterday and rolling around looking all pretty, so, of course, I had to take pictures :)  

Also, please, please, please check out this lovely blog post by my fPOE (Female Photographers of Etsy) friend, Angie at Laughter and Love Photography...it features one of my photographs plus many other INCREDIBLE Spring images from other fPOE ladies.  Here's the link: http://laughlovephoto.blogspot.com/2013/04/fine-art-friday-april.html.  

Spring has Sprung...

...And so have my allergies :(  It's been in the 80's the past two days and any plant/tree that was waiting to bloom has BURST!  Our weeping cherry blossom tree had buds on it two days ago and now take a look...

I'm hoping that tomorrow's storms don't knock off all the beautiful blooms...thankfully, there are more coming!!  Thanks for stopping by the blog!  What does Spring look like where you are?
