I had lots of points saved up on my scrapbooks reward card and decided to redeem them for a free 6 month sub to Scraptivity. I was receiving these kits about 2 years ago and what I liked most about it is each one comes with a unique technique to try out. For April, it was shimmerez paint. I use some of the blue over my handmade rolled flowers and over the canvas tags. They add such a shimmery look to it.

Easter has come and gone and here are pictures from last year! TSR kit using the girl's paperie line. Very soft and pretty.

I've been swamped with filing taxes for the family, soooo happy tomorrow is the deadline and I can finally take a break from my home office and be able to go and enjoy this beautiful weather we're having.

My new 20-700mm lens should be delivered today and my sister is in town and working from my home today so she can even sign off on it! More photos to come. Other exciting news is I'm taking an on-line class from Maggie Holmes starting May 10th. Super cool!

Spring layouts

The scrap-room's April kits are just full of Spring colors. Lots of fun designs to choose from.

For this layout using October Afternoon Thrift shop line, I had fun making the paper flower and using Tim Holtz metal memo pins to hold my journaling tickets. I love how we get just a sampling of the newest embellishments out on the market to play with! Just the right amount too.

These photos were taken last summer when Micah loved to chase the chickens around at grandma's house. Those poor chicks.

My Mind's Eye Little boy blue: Paxton has the most Nicknames out of all the kids

For some reason, my white balance setting was set too cool here! The colors are so much richer and vibrant in person.

The scallop punch is my favorite! The journaling records how Makenzie wants to turn six so she can loose her teeth like her friend John N at school and get coins from the tooth fairy. She was very upset about having to wait so long before her teeth start falling out!

Usually I have a very difficult time making cards. But this month's stamps were too cute and easy to play with.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a great Easter! I'm hoping the kids won't be scared of the Bunny this year so I can get some photos :)
