St. Pats layout

My Studio Calico April kit Spencers is getting a work out this month.  I am loving the colors and all the embellishments this month.  This pictures is from our annual St. Patrick's Day weekend at the Schmidts! I am missing a couple of kiddos but as they get older it gets harder to get them in one place and to stand still all at once.  Sadly I did not get a 2013 kid's photo this year :(

More layouts

I did two layouts this past week and both used my April Studio Calico kit Spencers.  I used this Ellle's Studio sketch for inspiration for the one above and this Studio Calico sketch for the one below.  Lately the sketches have been really inspirational and have helped me get some layouts done quickly!  Now I am ready for my May kit!

The month of March is over and so is my one month to document Project Life style.  After tackling this project just one month a year I know why I can't commit to a whole year.  I love the concept but it does take time.  If the rainy weather passes I will take some photos of my spreads to share here.

But now I can scrapbook layouts again!  I used my Studio Calico Spencer's April kit and this sketch by Allison Davis.  Once I started this layout came together real fast, I love all the colors in this kit and layout!
