Ready for April?

I think I am! And then when I got the newsletter from Lara today, I was definitely wishing April would hurry up and get here! Did you see the pictures of the April kit? This kit is going to knock your socks off! Can you believe that all this great product will only cost you $29.95?! And then there's the add on:

Are you ready for spring?

I can't believe how time flies. It seems like I say that in every post I make. I probably do :) Anyways, I've been so busy catching up on life I've had very little time to scrap. I hope to change that after spring break - with my computer up and running it's much easier to print on the spur of the moment. I have a tentative scrap date set up with a friend next weekend (yeah!) and my photography class is half over.

Thought I'd show you another 2-page layout I did with the March kit. This was probably the quickest layout I've made in forever! Things just seemed to come together when I decided what pictures I wanted to use.

This is my daughters 3rd 5K and it was the first one that she didn't walk at all in! She finished in 41 minutes (sadly I finished later than that but I figure at least I'm doing it ... and it was the first race since November!). The weather was perfect!

I hope spring is beginning to show up in your little part of the world and I hope you are outside enjoying it!

Quick Page!

Today I just have another quick layout using the March kit.

This is based on a great sketch by a fellow scrapper and blogger Kristin.

Quick and fun!
Happy Wednesday!

Let's Do a Fast Layout!

Last week I participated in a sketch challenge that had to be done in only 1 1/2 hour time frame. You may ask if this is even possible. Well, I'm here to say that yes it is. And if you would give it a try yourself, you might find that not only is it possible, but it really helps you to quit all the second guessing that sometimes takes place when creating a layout. You just get in there and do it. And most of the time, it ends up being one of those layouts that you really love!! I used the March kit to create this fun layout:

Still loving the "old" kits...

Anyone remember this kit (below) from September 2009????


I dug it out from my stash to create a new layout.

It's so nice to be able to reach into my stash of kits and find the perfect one that goes with my pictures!
I'm still using February's kit, too (SO perfect for 'girly' layouts)...

Bright Colors!!!

One thing I am really drawn to are bright colors in patterned papers and embellishments. That's one of the many reasons why I was really drawn to the My Little Shoebox side of this month's kit. Even though I didn't have any pictures that went with the Asian theme of the paper, I had fun playing with the bright colors. I even got the chance to spritz some of my bright orange Maya Mist to bring out the orange in the embellishments.

The two layouts I made are of my niece and nephew with my Grammy (their Great Grammy)...such wonderful memories that are now captured and will be available to Addy and Evan as they get older (one of the many rewards of scrapbooking)!

Yep. It has happened again. I am awaiting two more embellishments for this kit! Brand new CHA embellishments that the vendors are just having trouble getting to me quickly! But they are on the way.

In the meantime, here is an ALMOST full reveal of the April kit. It's packed enough as it is! Can you imagine how much better it will be with two more embellis???

$40.00 kits for a subscriber price of just $29.95!!!

We also have some of the April Add-Ons available! So remember to stop by the Add-Ons page and pick up some more goodies!!

The Look

Hello! It's Valerie here, sharing a layout using the March kit! This picture brought me back about 10 years...and really made me think of my grandpa back in Texas (we called him Big Daddy!) He would get this scowl on his face when something wasn't quite right, and my little Audrey pulls it off effortlessly!

Happy March!

Well the weather is making me think of spring - and so will the March kit! Between all my computer issues (don't ask), my photography class (yeah!), and regular school activities I haven't had nearly as much time to play with the kit as I would've liked! But I can print and edit photos now so as soon as our taxes are done I'm spending time scrapping!

I thought I'd share this 2-page layout with you using the Nikki Sivils side of the kit. I also used the sketch in the kit for the first half of the page.

Hope you are enjoying your March!

Altered Door Hanger

It has been a while since I had done an altered item, so I decieded it was time to mix itup! I have had a pile of door hangers for years, and thought the green would play well with the papers and embellishments from the March kit. Audrey, our little two year old has the nick name of CoCo, although if you ask her what her name is, she answers ME! I just didn't think me would look as cute hanging on her door ;) Do you have any special plans for the March kit?! We would love to see them!

March Ad Challenge

Today I have this month's ad challenge for you, and it was so much fun for me!

My family is planning a trip to Disney World toward the end of this year, so as I've been in the beginning stages of planning our trip, I have come across a lot of Disney ads. This one for one of their resorts, hit me with inspo!

So here's what I did, using the jammed packed amazing March kit!!
I used the color scheme, the pink circle, and the teal star to come up with this:
An unexpected bonus: the card my daughter is so proud of features a Disney Princess! Imagine that! :) So how does it inspire you? Link us up here in this post with your layout!
