Challenge #36

I'm having a hard time believing that it is already the middle of April.  It seems like it was just yesterday when I was taking down the Christmas tree.  I think I'm going to blink and the kids will be out of school for the summer.  So, when summer rolls around, does your scrapbooking time decrease?  I like to be outside when the weather is nice, so I know the number of pages that I can do during the summer months will decrease.

Take a look at the sponsor we have for April.  We are so happy to have Apron Strings as a sponsor.  They have both scrapbook kits and card kits, so whatever your fancy is, they have it covered.

Let's not forget that they have graciously given all of our regular readers a discount this month.

Twist: Use 2 of the same pictures AND butterflies

Runs from 4/15 - 4/30

First up, our Guest Designers!  LOVE LOVE LOVE these pages.  It is such a pleasure to have new guest designers each month.  If you'd like to be a gues designer, you have to participate!!!  So get those creativ hats on and give it a go!

Good luck everyone and have some fun with this one!

March DT Faves and Random Winner

So, I thought Spring was right around the corner, but according to my weather, it's supposed to snow in Michigan on Friday.


I have a very busy running schedule and biking schedule this year and I really need to start training for some upcoming races, but I refuse to run when it's below 40.  What's a girl to do?


A special thank you to those that participated this month! If you remember, in December and January, our participation levels were very low, but I'm happy to say that they have recovered.  So, thank you, again, for those that follow and keep us alive.

Our DT favorites for the March challenges are:

Jinny Newlin
Stephanie DiSabato

Challenge #35 - Hoppy Easter!

Hope everyone had a great Easter! Did your kids have a great time? Did they find all of the eggs? Eat too much candy? Love all of the goodies in their baskets? I'm SURE you took lots of photos ... why not print them and play along with this challenge? We selected this palette and sketch just for your Easter photos! Aren't we thoughtful? We'd love to see how much fun your munchkins had yesterday!

Use this sketch, designed by the super talented, Christina Collins:
