April Challenge and a Layout!

Hello there!
 How is your April going?

 Have you joined in with this months fabulous Mood Board challenge yet?

Just a reminder of what it is this month!!

No automatic alt text available. Aren't these colors just gorgeous!!?
I was so inspired by the pretty colors that I had to find a photo that reminded me of summer and sunshine! And I found an younger photo of my Daughter and began creating!!

Some closer views..
 Don't you just love the pink and yellow combination! I have a cluster of flowers and I also love using my edge punches.. I put little yellow gems on my Dandelions for some sparkle!

Often I will have a play with Mixed Media products and Shop And Crop Scrapbooking have an amazing range of products you can find HERE!!!  

I love to create layers, they add interest and dimension on your page.. And I like to do some fussy cutting of element from papers too..  like the butterflies..

and my layout for this months challenge.....


All the products I have used have been from my supplies.
You can load your challenge entry IN THE GALLERY HERE!!! 
There is a wonderful prize to win!!

And I would love to share with you a layout I have created using some beautiful papers from CARTA BELLA - It's a Girl  collection..

and the CARTA BELLA - It's a Girl Sticker Sheet .

Well aren't these papers just the cutest!!? I found a photo of one of my Daughters when she was 4 months old and created a layout.. I enjoyed using this sweet range let me tell you!!

Some closer views for you!

A little cluster using a couple of stickers from the sticker sheet, and adding a flower from my stash and a heart die cut from the paper.

This little lamb is from the sticker sheet and I have lifted her up by putting cardboard underneath and I have given her some sparkle by using glitter glue!! I lifted up other stickers too with cardboard..

I cut the tag from the papers and put all that important information like date of birth, time of birth, weight and length.. things we do forget as time goes by, and slipped it behind my photo.. I added a little chipboard nappy pin and some ribbon and a little heart from the sticker sheet..

I ran these papers through my die cut machine to create this sweet little banner, the papers cut beautifully and you can see the embossed stitching detail because of the thickness and quality of the papers.

and my layout...

Sugar and spice.....

Other things I have used for this layout from my supplies were pink cardstock, white cardstock, Martha Stewart punches, flower ribbon, stencils texture paste and water color paints, glitter glue and  cardboard to add dimension to embellishments.
