March "scraps" layout & an April sneak.

On the 6th of each month I post a fun way to use up your scraps over at the Cocoa Daisy Daisy Diva blog,
Here is this month's idea:
I want to direct your attention to all those little left over strips of patterned paper you find laying on your desk after diving into your Cocoa Daisy kit. Something amazing happens when you take all those strips of paper and line them up side by side; you get your very own unique bit of patterned paper! Because Tricia coordinates the colors and patterns of the papers in each kit so well those strips of paper will go together with out much effort on your part. So if you want a simple, quick way to use up some of your paper scraps just line up some strips of paper. You can use the strips as your background like I did in this layout, or you could adhere the strips on a piece of cardstock and punch shapes from it and use them as accent pieces.

I have been playing with the Cocoa Daisy April kit this week and keep finding more and more photos that go with this kit! I have 5 layouts done already and am going to work on some cards today. Here is a little peek:

Have a great Thursday everyone! Here's hoping that the repairman can fix my washing machine so that it doesn't sound like a jet plane taking off!!

Some Wednesday randomness

The weather has been wonderful here, it really does feel like spring is just around the corner. Nate and Zach have loved being outdoors more, of course the best part has been all the big puddles in the yard!

A layout I did just for me using the February Jenni Bowlin kit:

My Mom took this photo of me with the boys and it's one of my favorites!

I am busy working on April's project kit, should have some sneak peeks by Friday. The name of the mini album is:
"while waiting for you" any guesses?

A little more love from the March CD kit.

There were so many fun "goodies" in the March kit that I thought I would make a few cards before I put it away.

I had a hard time cutting into the Jillibean bird house paper -it's so cute I just want to hoard it!

The library pocket and car sticker were perfect for a Father's day card.

This tree stamp worked perfectly with the die cut bird from the kit.

And I just had to find a way to use this little hanger die cut.

Before you put your kit leftovers away take a little time and make a few cards! Have a great Friday everyone!

Oh and thank you all so much for the nice comments about my new scrappy room!!

Life throws us curve balls sometimes, in fact sometimes life knocks you upside the head with a curve ball. I guess it's how we deal with those curve balls that tells us a lot about ourselves and this time I caught that curve ball and I'm throwing it right back!

I have been very fortunate to have a scrappy room to escape to for a few minutes each day and now that the remodeling of my room is done I feel that sense of peace even more when I walk in my room. The room feels very quiet and serene and I am surrounded by lots of bit and baubles.

Have a great rest of the weekend every one!
