Saturday, April 9

Rough Week....

I won the Trifecta this week - Strep, Bronchitis, and an Ear Infection. And it all came on really fast - I had a sore throat just starting when I went to bed Sunday night and by the time I got to the doctor at noon on Tuesday I felt half dead. I'm still a mess but now have enough energy to work a few hours at a time.

Yesterday I was able to pull together my Counterfeit Challenge Kit for April. April's inspiration kit is from Front Porch Kits. I took my inspiration from the kits colors and the birds & butterflies.



The patterned paper in my kit is all My Mind's Eye - I just got some of the new Stella & Rose paper and it's lovely! I've also used various sheets from some of their older lines.



 


I also threw together a huge assortment of embellishments. The blue butterflies on the left were made from lace cardstock that I layered and added details to with stickles.







I pulled a selection of Bazzill cardstock and some My Mind's Eye kraft paper and a Jenny Bowlin diecut that I missed putting in my previous pic.













This kit seems so small compared to March. I've been getting about 10 or so layouts done each month using my kit so I made a 'mini-kit' of some really fun Bella Blvd papers I got recently - just in case I run out!





And here's my layout I did for LAST Saturday's 'For the Love of Sketches' sketch!


Thanks for stopping by!
