Project 12 - April layout

Well, here we are again, another Project 12 layout completed, this time for April 2010.

Here's the Page Maps sketch that I was working to.

Instead of using two photos on the left hand page though, I used a single 5"x7" one.

Here's my take on the sketch with photos from April.

Once again I used the same papers that I have been using all along for this project. I mounted a large glittery embellishment from the kit on foam tape for the right hand page, although I added some TLC swirl rubons coming out from under it, as well as a small flower rubon on the centre of it. I also used a Beutron button from my stash, and some Purls of Yarn, (Angel tones) feathery fibre.

On the left hand page, as well as the fibre, I also used another button, and an epoxy sticker that has been in my stash for way too long! I mounted the stickers for the month on foam tape, in exactly the same way as I have done for the other months so far. The paper I used to print the journalling on was from one of those inexpensive packs of patterned paper I bought from a department store early on when I first starting scrapbooking. Finally to finish the page off, I used a TLC Happy Birthday rubon over the title, and drew fake stitching around the title and the journalling paper.

Here are the pages singly. You can click on them to see them bigger.

The month wasn't all that busy, Gary's birthday, a weekend Guide camp for Kyaa and school holidays. The kids and I made a couple of bike trips around the lake and completed some geocaches at the same time. We got caught in the one thunderstorm during April and got absolutely soaked! We went out to dinner for Gary's birthday, and Kyaa enjoyed her camp in Sydney. For the rest it was pretty quiet, and relaxing, and we just enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather.

Till next time, happy days!
