Blog Hop Winner and the Rest of My April Projects!

Here are the rest of my projects for the month of April using American Crafts :)
I decided to do a 12x12 layout for this one. I lightly misted the yellow side of a sheet of American Crafts paper from the City Park line (Gryffn Park) using Tattered Angels Gingerbread Glimmer mist. I wanted it to have a muddy effect. My title was created using American Crafts stickers, thicker alphabet and Cosmo Cricket mini alphas. Same for the cloud sticker with Evan's name. The chipboard accents are American Crafts as well.

My second layout is 8 1/2 x 11 because I wanted to just highlight one photo. Some pretty yellow flowers from a flower box in our backyard. For the strips at the top and bottom of each page, I used American Crafts patterned paper from the City Park line (Liberty Grove) and Fabric Paper from the Dear Lizzy's Spring line (Snapdragon Soiree). I also used an American Crafts chipboard frame and Dear Lizzy rub-on's. The flower embellishment is Sassafras Lass. And the memo page I used to type my journaling on is from Making Memories.

I did a two pager this month! When I saw the October Afternoon picnic flashcard in my kit of supplies, I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use :) Since the other flash card didn't really fit the theme, I turned it around and used it for my journaling. Decorated with a button strip, some trim, a tree cut from AC patterned paper and a tree sticker and label, I had a home for my story. I also matted both flashcards on AC patterned paper from the blue skies line. I hand cut the cloud and kite from some more AC patterned paper and my title was complete.
