April Scrapping

Lisette here with my April post - I know everyone says it, but where has the year gone! I can't believe that Easter is here!

Luckily I went to a scrapbooking retreat at the end of February where I did lots of creating.  Life has been way too busy in the last month or so.

I did both of these layouts at retreat.  Love getting in the flow where you can do layout after layout, no having to think of whats for dinner, or what other stuff has to be done.  Love that I am able to get away to create a few time in the year and be surrounds by wonderful talented ladies.

I did this layout for a challenge but as per usual forgot to enter it!

I love this photo of my hubby, totally relaxed and having a good laugh.

As always I started the layout using stencils and Colour Blast texture paste.

ST90020 - A4

CB5165 Lavender - and yes I did use flowers on a masculine layout.

CB113 Heart Frames 10

CB6105 Assorted Words 23

I created this layout for a challenge blog where I am on the Design team.  We had to use Brown, Boarders & Fun. 

I did the Miss Muddy 5k Mud run with my daughter in September last year.  Something I had never done before.  It was wonderful doing it with Kaitlyn and friends from the gym.  We got very messy, had lots of laughs and most of all had heaps of fun.

Again I started with a stencil and texture paste.  I realised as I was doing this post that I use the same Colour Blast texture paste for both layouts and also used a different size of the hexagon stencil.  I think this is a fabulous idea - having the same stencils in 3 different sizes and each size has 3 variations.

I hope my layouts have inspired you to create, especially with the Easter Long Weekend on our doorstep.  I know I intend to!

Happy Easter everyone.  
Stay Safe and enjoy with family and friends.
