To New Beginnings...



Today's Stamp Simply Challenge is all about Easter, or, more generally speaking- New Beginnings.
I chose new beginnings for a few reasons- one being today, we lay yet another officer to rest. It's been an extremely challenging and long several months here dealing with all these deaths in the law enforcement field. Here's to new beginnings- for all.

Head on over to Sharon's blog to read all the details and see her fabulous sample.

I found this great color combo while blurfing a bit ago- I can't remember where now...I love mixing unsuspecting colors together, and this one was not your norm combo. The stamps are from several kits- the flowers and grassy image are from bevy of butterflies, and the sentiment is from last month's KOM.
