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!!
