April Mosh Posh Layouts + Some Other Random Stuff

Do you ever have a really brightly colored embellishment and get a little overwhelmed with using it? That is how I felt with the American Crafts puffy stickers. I didn't want the brightness to overshadow some of the more matte colors of the other papers, so I just let the stickers be their own layout. This is a great idea if you have letters leftover from another project.

These flowers were really easy to make. I used my Fiskars circle punch and then cut little triangles out of the edges so that it made the flowers look like they have petals. Super cute.

When I get my pictures developed at Walgreens, they give me the option of having my photos developed as a collage. When I bring the pictures home, all I have to do is cut out and arrange. This is a great way to document fun pictures from a whole month!

I got my box (all ELEVEN pounds!) from GCD Designs and I am ready to get creating! I will also be hosting National Scrapbooking Day (May 2nd!!!) over at so I am busy creating a fun contest for everyone! PLUS getting ready for another Blog Party over at Mosh Posh for the 4th Anniversary party!!! PLUS getting ready for Breuklyn's birthday this weekend. PLUS trying to play catch up after a long weekend. PLUS editing all of my Easter pictures. PLUS wanting to take a nap! :)

What are you up to?
