Spring is here! And April is almost over. For today’s word art I made for you all a little plaque to put on your layouts about Spring.

Today is April Fool’s Day!
I found a very interesting article about April Fool’s Day, it is located here:
At the end of the article is a quote by Twain:
The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year. — Mark Twain
This would be a very cool quote to put on a layout about April Fool’s Day and would work for other layouts as well.
Did you play an April Fool’s joke on someone? Did someone play one on you? Make a layout about it!

The word for today is RAIN!
You can use this poem in your layout about rain or you can find one of your own. We used to sing this song when it rained while watching it out the window. It would make a great layout to get a photo of a child looking out the window at the weather and have this poem on the layout.
It’s raining, it’s pouring;
The old man is snoring.
Bumped his head
And he went to bed
And he couldn’t get up in the morning. Rain, rain, go away;
Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play.
I guess I am hung up on rain at the moment as we are in a drought stricken area. We had a little rain a week ago but it was not enough by a long shot to make it safe around here.

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day so today I thought I would give you some words to put on a St. Patrick’s Day layout or for any photos you took yesterday.
But, I could not choose between two different items I found. So…you guessed it…you get both!
The first is an Irish blessing that I found at: http://www.quotegarden.com/st-patricks-day.html
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
I thought this would look really great with a child’s photo of them in green or wearing something for St. Patrick’s Day.
The second set of words I found is a poem. It was at: http://www.childstoryhour.com/storiesholiday3.htm
Leprechaun, leprechaun, fly across the sea
And fetch an emerald shamrock for you and me.
Do not bring a nettle or a thistle for a joke,
But bring an Irish shamrock, for we are Irish folk.
And you and I, my leprechaun, will wear the shamrock gay,
And match it with and Irish smile upon St. Patrick’s Day
This has inspired me to be sure to get a photo of my grandson for St. Patrick’s Day. I am sure he has some kind of green outfit!

Today’s word is Spring. To get you started and to help you scrap this word I went to the Wordle site and created a word art for you all. Then I put it into png format. If you use this, it would be nice if you came back and posted a link here.

Does anyone who are basically digiscrappers write on their layouts anymore, in their own hand? I’d like to hear from anyone that does. Check out these new products by Share Your Moments:
Have a good day, all for now, Mina

Yeah, I’m stuck for them this week. The personalised journal kind of fonts are giving way to more formal types in the latest layouts. Layout journaling is beginning to look a lot like they are from magazine pages or printed books. The style is classic and clean.
Fonts that suit this type of layout are already on your machine Arial, Times New Roman. You can make a difference with them by using size - making keywords a lot larger and grouping other words that relate to some concept (oh what is she talking about now?)
Typewriter fonts are pretty cool. Especially ones that aren’t perfect.

Journaling is a big deal in digiscrapland., but sometimes words just don’t do justice to the occasion. Sometimes, they just aren’t enough. How do you handle scrapping for these times? Maybe you can find the words later.
There are ways to do it, and that’s with imagery and colour to set the mood. Another way is use as less words as possible. When my brothers drowned a mountain of cards came to the house. There are two I remember most. One just said ‘Alas’ and had a signature. The other was blank and had a hand painted tree with a signature. These cards are etched into my mind and still make me bawl when I think of them. At the time, according to me, there was nothing to say. The boys were gone - I just had grief.
Sometimes brevity is the most vocal/poignant/best way of getting the message across.
Imagine a newborn pic with just ‘Wow’ as the journaling. Or the first day of school with a drawing/sticker/cartoon of birds leaving the nest. Sometimes all can be said in a title.
We understand the meanings because we are intelligent, visual beings. Here’s a great example I spotted in the gallery. It’s by LateNightScraps:

No, not words as such but fonts today. Here are some gorgeous grunge fonts free for personal use. In an earlier post I was going on about FairyTale stuff. Here’s one that would suit your Royal, Regal layouts for your Princes and Princesses called:
Gorgeous grungy titles and text for blending, great for altered art projects too:
I really like this one for an unusual graphic take. Can just see this on funked up and artsy pages:
Click on the images to get them.
