Good Friday? It's a GREAT Friday!

As a teacher, the next best thing after July and August, is SPRING BREAK! I've been enjoying it all week and having so much fun scrapping whenever I feel like it. I think I've gotten a lot done, and I've really been able to dig-in to the April kit (which I LOVE)! I loved the Jillibean Soup side of the kit for precious layouts of my niece (which I posted several weeks ago). I used the "Twig" side of the kit for layouts of my two crazy nephews, Aiden and Evan.

A few weeks ago I made a great investment into a class by Kelly Purkey called Sketchbook 3. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (for 4 weeks) I get an email with sketches and sample layouts. I've really gotten my money's worth because I keep going back to the sketches and using them in different ways. So...a lot of these layouts were created using these sketches. Check them out and let me know what you think!

April Showers...

bring lots of wind here in Colorado! It hasn't rained much but the wind sure is blowing. And it makes for some pretty miserable soccer games! With Easter right around the corner and school letting out shortly after that, I'm finding very little time for myself to scrap lately! I hope you aren't having the same problems I am! I did carve some time out Friday night and did some fun layouts with the April kit - hoping to get them scanned in tonight after soccer practice!

Here's a quick Easter layout from last year though - using the Jillibean papers. I'm holding out for some bike pictures so I can use that adorable bike paper! I used the sketch included with the kit for the second page of my layout:

If I can get the other two layouts scanned I'll add them into my post later tonight! If not, be sure to look in the gallery later this week!

Just got them scanned in so I thought I'd upload them! The wind is still blowing hard here, but maybe my layouts using the Little Yellow Bicycle Twig line will inspire you some!

This one was a little out of my comfort zone but I like how it turned out! (Letters for January were not included in the kit.)

And this one was some recent pictures I took after my daughter spent all afternoon trying to decide which instrument she was going to play next year in band - she had so much fun showing it off!

Mini Book Tutorial

I am so excited to bring you a video tutorial on making this mini! This book was made out of one sheet of paper from the April kit. I made it as a thank you for my mom, she sent Audrey some makeup goodies.
