I’m so tired of snow. Is spring here yet?  Where I live, in Connecticut, we’re expecting more snow this week. The only good thing about snow is I get to work from home if I don’t want to travel in the snow. That’s great, but seriously there’s just way too much to go out there and play in. I may just lose my son in the snow piles! This is a picture of him standing in front of a snow pile.  We’ve had about 50″ of snow since December.

 On to the reason you’re here. This week’s LOTW winner is Lysithea with her stunning “Everything Grows With Love” LO.

Click on the image to leave her some love or click here to view her entire Gingerscraps Gallery.


Her beautiful layout was created with the Puppy Love Collection by Marshmella Designs

You can pick outstanding gallery layouts which become the next LOTW nominee’s by posting in the “Baker’s Best” thread. Check out the rules here.

As always your vote counts so head over the the forum to vote for the next LOTW winner. You can be a LOTW winner too, all you have to do is scrap! Happy Scrapping.
