Well, I guess I will keep this pretty short. I absolutely lost track of time this past weekend and almost forgot about this fabulous giveaway that Jennifer is offering. Totally wrapped up in getting my taxes worked on — how about you? You got yours done yet?
So, onward. I have a couple of layouts to share with you using the new April templates.
I’m pretty much stuck on 12 x 12 just because that is what my albums are and I’m not loving the idea of mixing page sizes in my albums.So, I converted both of my templates into 12 x 12 pages this month.
First up, my daughter hit her 21st birthday. The saddest part was we couldn’t be with her to celebrate, but she did share this little pic with me and of course, I scrapped it.
Next, in addition to using one of the April templates, this one was also inspired by an April story starter. Granted, I only have one child, so my art work comparison is from 5th grade and college.
I had no idea where I was headed on this, but I absolutely love how this came together by using more “paint effects” in place of patterned papers on this one. It just seems to feel right for this display of art.
(Note, I used a more recent picture in this version of the layout than the one originally submitted. In fact, I was pretty much amazed when my daughter sent me this last photo of her rendition of a piece from her textbook.)
