May 2011 DT Sketch!

Hello Magnolia friends!  They say April showers bring May flowers and I must say that Virginia is all green and blossomed and so very pretty right now.  Don't you just love Spring?  To me it means windows wide open (even with the pollen), pots of flowers on the patio, bike rides and lots of grilling outside!  A beautiful time of the year that's for sure and May is my favorite month (maybe because its my birthday month, lol)!

**NOTE: The winners of the Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest have been announced by Diana and you can find a complete list at the end of this post!  Congrats to all the winners, you were all deserving!  ***

The winner of the April DT Challenge hosted by the lovely Sharon Caudle is..................
