"All-Star Sisters" Layout ~ The ScrapRoom

Hello everyone!
Today I am up on The ScrapRoom Blog sharing a layout I created
inspired by the 
April Freaky Fast Formula

For the challenge I decided to use the 
Echo Park "Magic & Wonder" Page Kit 
one of four kits included in the April 
I did not have any Disney photos that have not been scrapped so I opted for 
 some photos I had taken of my great-nieces while they
were in Portland competing in the Pac West Cheer Competition last month!
Both girl's teams took first place in their division and each team member is given a jacket,
so here they are showing off their jackets! 
Here's my layout....

And the April Freaky Fast Formula that inspired the design of my page...

I encourage you to try creating a layout using the formula. It’s interesting to create a layout using the formula and seeing the results!  Give it a chance – if not now, maybe next month.  The ScrapRoom reveals a formula each month.  
You can find all of the challenge details and rules in 

Have fun creating, you have until April 30th, 11:59 PM (PST) to link up your entries
for a chance to win the following prize:
The TSR Design Team is looking forward to seeing all of your creations. 

Visit The ScrapRoom and check out this amazing kit
and all of the other amazing April Kits. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

"Love & Adore You" Layout ~ The ScrapRoom

Hello!
Each month I look forward to receiving a priority box with the monthly kits from
This month as always, the kits were full of awesome scrappy goodness!
Lots of inspiring colors, patterns and designs!

Here's a look at the 
Fancy Pants " Family & Co" Page Kit
one of four kits included in the April
This kit is perfect for documenting life with family and friends!
Below is the layout I created using this awesome kit....

Great colors and patterns which made it so easy and quick to create a layout of me and my great-nephew goofing around, while he was in Oregon during his sister's Cheer competition last month. 
One of my favorite paper companies is Fancy Pants and as usual this collection did not disappoint, especially with the incredible embellishments Rochelle added to this kit. 

All items used are from the kit with the exception of enamel shapes taken from the 
and the Alpha Stickers and Acrylic Word Sticker are from my personal stash.

Visit
The ScrapRoom
and check out all of the other layouts and projects the 
Design Team created using this amazing page kit, as well as other projects  using
the other page  kits in the April
Flavors of the Month Kit
Thank you for visiting my blog!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
