Mardi Gras - Either Early or Late

Good morning!  While packing up my studio last week I came across these colorful papers and got inspired enough that I stopped packing and made some last minute Mardi Gras layouts.  So ... I'm either six months late for this year or six months early for next.

Now, I've been to New Orleans several times, but I've never actually seen a Mardi Gras parade.  I can only imagine the floats with all of their bright, beautiful colors and the marvelous costumes!  I hope these layouts do them justice.

We visited New Orleans one Spring day several years ago and the flower gardens were absolutely stunning.

The lamp in this one reminds me of all of the lovely ornamental iron in the older part of New Orleans.

Have a lovely and blessed Friday and an even better weekend!
