Hello everyone!!! Hope you all had a fabulous Easter holiday :) We spent the day with family - here's a few pics from Sunday . . .
dying eggs Easter morning (yes I waited until the last minute) . . .
exploring some Easter goodies . . .
having a little sugary snack :)
hunting for eggs at Grammy's . . .
finally - I'm in a pic!!!
Grammy, Ryan & me :)
Okay - on to some scrappy :)
Pam over at My Creative Scrapbook sent me this adorable kit to work with this month - love, love, love the bright, fun colors & all the cute embellies :)
Here is my sketch for April . . .
And here is the layout I came up with using the April Creative kit . . .
The title letters were raw chipboard & I was excited to try this new product I found to cover them . . .
It is super easy to use - just stamp the letters on an embossing stamp pad, cover with the distress embossing powder, shake off any excess powder, and then heat. TADA!!! Totally covered - love that the graininess (is that a word??) makes it look almost like soil - perfect for these outdoor pics!!
I also had fun creating this journaling block. It was a sticker frame that I pop-dotted & then back with a typed piece of patterned paper. The first word ("you") is actually cut from one of the stickers in the kit. Love the contrast of the fonts :)
I will be running a challenge in the MCS forum beginning the 10th so pop over here on Saturday!! Hope to see you all play along :)
I have more to share in the the coming days but here is a sneak peek of a few things in the meantime . . .
Have a fabulous Tuesday!!
