Carol's Page Maps Entry for April- Couture Cardstock

Danielle's first Easter where she chose her dress and it was a woman's dress to boot. She is growing up so quickly. This is my entry for the couture cardstock contest. I wanted to bring out the bright colors of Dani's dress and highlight the spring feeling.
I used the cutest bling gems and flowers to highlight the spring feel and used this ultra sweet title "Hello Beautiful" with the cute little Easter basket and felt swirl in lime green.
The journaling was special and personal to me in that I wanted to remember how much I felt this moment when I looked at her and realized she is growing up so fast. I love the cute little Easter chick and egg with the flowers. I also used felt flowers as a embellishment across the base as well as this really neat transparent with blue felt design paper. Feels very cool.

April PageMaps Contest - Christie's Entry

I had so much fun doing this layout!  I love the color pallet of blue, green, and orange!  Plus, Jaxson had on the cutest baby blue smocked Easter outfit!  I used Blue background with green and blue scalloped felt ribbon with a beautiful blue felt butterfly which I accented with glitter.  The pictures top the page off!  We had a few really hot days before Easter where we had let him run through the water hose so as soon as we got home from church on Easter Sunday he ran to get the water hose sprayer!  He was absolutely adorable!  I'm so glad I had my camera out.

I love the accents under the pics!  Having three boys - I don't get to use flowers very often!!

The Title is from a Cricut cartridge and I chalked and watercolor penciled the flower accent on the title.  I love the white brackets - really make it pop!
I used blue and green gems to create my bullet-list for "Favorite things about Spring"

New website to follow....

So I keep a log of like a zillion scrapbook blogs I follow (nothing like a good scraplifting every now and then). Well, I found a really neat new one today called THE COLOR ROOM. See their blinkie I added here. Well, they do really neat scrapbook contests using an optional sketch but the main requirement is that you meet the color palette they provide. I am in. First contest ends April 16th and the submissions so far are insanely good. Can't wait to join in the fray.

Monday, April 05, 2010 contest for April...such an adorable sketch and I know just the pics to use. I will be doing this page about my darling Dani and Joe and using their Easter pics. Time to get them developed. I love this sketch but I am thinking I might blow up the middle pic to really enhance the layout. I am excited about the planning for this lo. Now, when I am going to find the time to scrapbook it and shop for papers.....Ummm....soon I hope. LOL
