Groundhogs day at lasting memories

In the grand fashion of groundhogs day, we here at lasting memories are trying to predict the return of spring.  Did you see your crafty shadow today? Will we be in for an early spring or more of the same brutal cold?  This week’s challenge is to create either a Spring or Winter Layout.
I vote spring, so glad to finally break out of the fog that has had it's grip on the valley for too long.
Even though I'm wishing for more spring like weather my layout for this challenge is a twist of both spring and winter.  Here's one more layout from our spring break trip last year up to the property/cabin.  March 2013 and we still had two feet of snow on the ground, not this year.
Willamette ski resort closed it's doors for the season last weekend and it looks like we are in for another dry summer.

The paper is a CM that I got as a gift for attending a crop this past June. I love the bright fresh colors on the background and the pink paper under the title has a faint floral pattern to it so it definitely has a spring feel to it as far as color goes, but the photos scream winter.
Close up of my brother- in -law after having to retrieve the shovel from the snow fort so he could get his truck free from the snow bank he high centered on
Just a hint of floral under the title.
 I cut the title with gypsy wondering font welded on the gypsy and then inked around the edges to give it a spring glow.
So what do you predict? spring or winter? We can't wait to see.
