... that May is bound to keep."
A very true quote here in Michigan. But I say, Hurray for April! Spring finally comes in April. Can't wait to see my daffodils again. My husband and my dad have April birthdays. Better get going on those masculine birthday cards. Easter Celebrations. So much to be thankful for. So much to look forward to. Yes, April is looking pretty wonderful.
I have three items for you on this first day of April. No fooling.
Item #1 (with three subheadings) The three design teams I am privileged to be associated with reveal their monthly challenges today.
Journaling Junkie: Challenge #101 is to create a layout with the title Most Likely To. Such a great idea! I scraplifted the design for my layout from a page by Stephanie Baxter that appeared in a recent issue of Scrapbook Trends Magazine.
When I make a layout like this, I like to include a companion page for my husband. Phil was more than cooperative! Notice how each item on both lists begins with the same word. Wouldn't this make a fun family project?
Scrap Your Stash: The April Challenge is to Bring In the Sun. It can be a layout, card, album - anything you want to create that has something to do with the sun. I've got a layout that I'm excited to share with you later this month. It will be posted on both the Scrap Your Stash blog and here on my own little blog.
Scrapbookers Anonymous: The April Challenge is to use your eyelet stash! Remember eyelets? Confession: I have no eyelets in my stash. I used them briefly, realized they were just not for me and got rid of them with no regrets, until now. But the kind ladies at SA have excused me for this month. So even if you're like me, still take a peek at this challenge blog. There is going to be a Blog Hop on April 7 and a Design Team Call!
Item #2 I've had the honor of receiving another Blog Award! Many thanks to Stephanie, Jade and Michele for this one!
The rules are: choose 15 fellow bloggers and share 7 things about yourself. For the 15 bloggers, I kindly refer you to my sidebar of Blogs I Follow. Every one of these crafters is deserving of your attention! And for the 7 things, I kindly refer you to the Most Likely To layout above!
Item #3 Today is the official start of my Spring Break! I am so ready. This little vacation time will also include a break from my computer. Happy Spring - see you later in April!
