Hey there scrappy friends!! Sorry for the hiatus. The family and I went on a bucket list vacation to Yosemite and, while we had access to the Internet, it was not scrap worthy! Oh, the trip was TOTALLY scrap worthy! But other than quickly popping a picture up on IG and FB, there was no way I was going to be able to blog. The connection was not that great. And, quite honestly, I was hoping for a bit of a break from the ethers. Nikolas, at 13 and his prime means of communication with the world, was, of course, ecstatic each time he found a conection!
I'm popping into today to share a layout with you based on the latest Paper Issues sketch! It's not often that I have the time to play with sketch challenges but when I do, you know I I have a blast. That was probably the biggest inspiration to me when I first got started in the design team world. You can find the Paper Issues sketch and their design teams' examples HERE.
And here is my take on the sketch;
I went rather literal with the sketch other than the footer that I added to ground things a bit. It felt as if things were floating without the strip along the bottom. And, I needed to use some more of those awesome goodies!
Inspired by the April kits from Cocoa Daisy, I took the idea of the combination of Crate Paper and Pink Paislee C'est La Vie and ran with it, adding in some other random bits and pieces that were in my stash. The black, white, pink and splash of yellow color combo make my heart sing today! You know I'm generally not a pink gal so this is a big moment for me!
Love these pictures of my cute girl out on her scooter at my parents house. They have a nice long drive way that is just perfect for picking up some speed and coasting! Probably not much fun to plow and keep clear in the winter...
Thanks for stopping in today!
