April showers brings May flowers! My thoughts exactly as I was opening my design team package. This kit is so gorgeous with it's lovely floral and soft colors. I couldn't wait to get started!!
 
My first layout is based on Swirlydoos Monthly Sketch. I just flipped it to better match my photo. I love this shot of my youngest daughter, Delilah. She was Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween last year. Since I don't do much Halloween themed layouts I toned down the reds in the picture and made an everyday layout. The Coral Butterfly Embellishments are from my Little Scrap Shop on Etsy.
 May Sketch
 
Sign....I love this picture of my daughter Clea. She was five years old when I took it and she'll be 15 next month. I can hardly believe it's been 10 years. I used the Dusty Attic April sketch by Nadia Cannizzo. Such a lovely design that fit my picture perfectly. The butterflies, Sweet Nothings,  are my newest addition to my etsy shop.
 
The colors in this kit are so versatile. I went all out green with this page. Not a color I scrap often, but I thought the papers and embellies so pretty! I used my Greenlee Butterfly Embellishments to further compliment my page.

 We're having a design team challenge this month. We are to create  a masculine page using the kit. Soooo, this is my dude page! It's was fun to get my hands dirty and play with mixed media goodies.
 
My last project is a criss-crossed card. You ladies that scrapped back in the early 2000's remember this card style, right?

I love the your first layout, enough to attempt a scraplift. My layering never looks like anything but a mess - but that one inspired me to try.

Nancy said...

Angelica, I love the layouts you made with your daughters! How beautiful! I loved how you showed Clea at five and then again at 15! She is so beautiful and the layouts just gorgeous! Your masculine layout was awesome as well as the sweet young man posing! Thank you so much for sharing! Your use of the water faucet feature was awesome!

Crazy how you did a Halloween LO without your typical colors - smart!! Then each other LO is a different color and ALL from the same kit. Again - smart. Love them all!

Beautiful layouts and your family is just as beautiful. I love all the mixed media on the masculine layout, I just took my first mixed media class at a CKC this past weekend. I am hoping to learn a bit more about all the mediums so I can create something so lovely one day.
