Spring has Sprung! April Crop Circles Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Happy Spring and welcome to our April Crop Circles blog hop! The topic of this month's hop is, curiously enough ....

To me, nothing says spring more than my first crocuses and daffodils poking through the barely thawed ground, so I figured this photo was the perfect place to start.
As some of you might know, I've bit the bullet and started a small kit club for some local gals. Our first kit featured the gorgeous Graphic 45 SECRET GARDEN COLLECTION.
{blog post about that to follow lol}
So here's my LO dedicated to spring..............
and no... I did not spell deja view's a play on words. I'm "viewing" this little flower all over again.....get it? Ah come on, humor me! Oh well, I never claimed to be a comedienne.
I'm offering up a little blog candy again this time for those of you who comment here today . You don't have to be a follower but it would be much appreciated { nudge nudge wink wink! :) }.
This is in addition to the awesome Maya Road prize that Cathy Caines will be awarding to one over all lucky blog hopper.
 Please note that our hop will continue till April 12 you have lots of time to play along! Thanks for hopping here today . Enjoy as you now hop along to KYMBERLEY'S .
