It amazes me that April 12 is the last 12th our family will spend in Rhode Island. So I'm glad that this April 12, much like my January 12, was simply a reflection of my day as a stay-at-home with Charlotte. Goodness knows that she won't be my rambunctious little toddler for much longer. (Can someone please stop time for just a little bit, please?)
I based this month's layout on Sketch 9 from the Take Twelve Guided Inspiration Kit. Actually, I drew a lot of inspiration from the beautiful sample layout by Donna Jannuzzi.
I especially love how clean and simple Donna's layout is with the layered papers behind the photostrips and title. For my paper strip, I primarily used papers from Authentique Splendid (which I recently purchased from Scrapbook Steals to celebrate completing Project 100).
Authentique's tiny word stickers were the perfect embellishment to my little corner banner embellishment. I also scraplifted the idea of incorporating a doily banner from the fabulous Erin Colby.
And finally, I embellished the little photostrips with some simple flower brads.
Supplies: Patterened Paper (Authentique, Echo Park, Sassafras); Letter Stickers (American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket); Buttons and Brads (My Mind's Eye, Making Memories); Digital Files (Samantha Walker); Other (Twinery Twine, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Fiskars Border Punch).
