Dilly Beans & Digi Haven: Spring & Jellypark: New Release

Good morning, friends!  Happy Friday!  I've had a headache for several days now, it seems to come and go throughout the day and night.  I have not been getting many headaches since we moved to California (after getting them regularly for my entire life), but we've had more rain than usual (usual = NONE) lately, and I wonder if it's the low pressure system.  I also can't help but wonder if the awful disaster at Fukushima has anything to do with it... radiation poisoning coming down with the rain and all that.  Pretty scary to think of it, but burying our heads in the sand doesn't help much either.  I also noticed when I moved here that I saw fewer chemtrails than I did in Massachusetts - but last week, I saw quite a few of them.  Makes you wonder what they are spraying and if that might even be affecting me (you can read some info on them here, here, and here).  I write it all down in my little date-book to try to see correlations and I try to keep a positive attitude because let's face it, I just can't save the world from all this crap as much as I'd like to!  *sigh**

So - let's get on to the happy, uplifting stuff - like art!  :)  Today we have a new challenge for you at:

I am also entering this into the:

Digi Haven Challenge: SPRING

I used the adorable new Maisie Mermaid, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and lots of Stickles.  My paper is from Authentique, and I added a coordinating flower with a button center.  Rickrack is from my stash, and I made the sentiment on the DP with a little mini alphabet rubber stamp set that I have.  Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon is from Stampin' Up!
We also have a new challenge (About a Book) and a new release for you today at:
