It is so nice to feel the rain. 
Now for some very exciting news I am now a Design Team Member of

if I would like to be on her Design Team, well what was not to like I didn't even
have to think about it as I absolutely love Mitzi's images, which I have using
for the past few years.
As I was away when the 1st Challenge went live I could not take part, so I will be
joining the other fabulously talented DT members for the 2nd Challenge which starts on the
21st of April
But there is time to join in the 1st Challenge and the theme is
