Project 12 March in April

Hello ladies!

In an attempt to make things a wee bit easier, at least for a short while, I'm going to post the challenge without including some of my favorite layouts.

I LOVE looking through all the comments and will continue to do that, but I am getting overwhelmed with some of my to do lists in real life, and in an effort to keep on track with posting the challenge as well as my layout, until I have things organized, I'm changing it up a bit.  Focus was my word for 2011, and a to do list is in order in an effort to make things a little less hectic.

I hope you understand and I hope to be back on track soon! 

February was a stinker of a month because my birthday was looming at the end of it, lol, but I still managed to have many fun things to document.

As a reminder, here's what Becky's sketch for February looked like:



and this is what I came up with:


I needed a new headshot, so decided to include it on this layout in order to avoid the guilt from not doing an about me layout.  ha!  I actually do need to do more of those, but now is not the time.

See that cake?  Those cakes?  All the candles?  My kids felt I needed a double helping in order to reach the appropriate number.  sigh....  I changed the sketch a bit in order to better tell my story with an extra photo, and I shuffled embellishments a bit. 
























This layout was made with the April kit from Studio Calico.  I still had it sitting out, and a monthly kit turned out to be a perfect idea for creating this layout, as the kit and the timeframe will be, at least for me, appropriately themed in colors and embellishments.  ish. 
























I have no shame in admitting that I completely stole the journaling idea from ShellyJ, a frequent contributor, and plan to do that again.  I just love how it looks and it was a great way to do the choppy journaling that comes from highlighting unrelated events.  Because of these journaling spots, I turned up the edges outside my stitching around my whole layout, and I love how that looks.

I'm working through the comments from this sketch and love the different interpretations I've seen, the use of white space, filling it in with extra photos...  I love how a sketch can take you somewhere else.

With that in mind, check out the March sketch:



Embellishing this one shall be fun! 

As always, you have until the 28th of April to link your layouts to this post for a chance at a prize.  I hope you are checking the SCT blog to see if you have won on previous months.  If you are a winner, and haven't contacted SCT or received your prize yet, can you send me an email at cooperdees (at) yahoo.com ?  I just want to make sure all winners get their goodies.  You deserve it!  I appreciate you!

Take care!  I'll see you back here soon.  Off to comment in a more timely fashion.  ;)   Davinie
