Spring LURVE!

I LURVE spring flowers, tulips and hyacinths especially!

I LURVE Easter dresses!

I LURVE hand-knitted navy blue shrugs with chunky white buttons!

I LURVE my vivacious spirited joy-filled tot!

I LURVE being a mama-tog!

And I therefore LURVE mixing them up in front of my camera’s eye and then spicing them up with my new free actions in my new way-inexpensive Photoshop Elements program that I’m baby-stepping my way through learning about!
