We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !!  
 
The last week of March to the first two weeks of April is a pretty busy time for me. We have three birthday's and spring break. So, I wasn't able to jump right on this gorgeous kit. I just got to stare at it and do a little petting. Once I had two days free I was able to get these three pages done QUICK! Usually it takes me 3-4 days to complete ONE page. This kit was the easiest by far to work with! Everything just coordinated to perfectly! Plus, the colors....okay!?!?
 
My oldest daughter just celebrated her 16th birthday. I took her on your yearly photo shoot and just KNEW that this kit would compliment her lovely photos.
 This kit is so elegant and classy that I decided to go with a more playful approach for my second layout. I loooovvvee the black and white polka dot paper...and of course made matching butterflies that you can find HERE.
 This is my layout based on the sketch...although it looks way off!! LOL!! You know how it is? You start with a sketch and it takes a life of it's own. I used one photo instead of three small ones. And I had to use all that negative space. So, I used the Dusty Attic chandelier chippy....the inspiration for my Ambient Elegance Butterflies.
 Here is the monthly sketch
 
 
So, let's get started! Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win!!!
