See? I told you that I was catching up!
April was almost a picture-free month except for the crafty projects that I was doing. Between traveling for work and limited daylight and weekend times, I didn’t really get out much to take pictures. Oh well, it happens right?
For this month’s summary, I put together pictures of my favorite projects from the month plus one doozy dessert picture from a restaurant that I went to in Waterloo. Total yumminess!
I love the Martha Stewart Hydrangea border punch that I used here. The glitter also matches perfectly and adds just the right zing.
I used some super cool new ribbon trim from Webster’s Pages. It is rolled up tulle to create roses then it’s attached to a larger piece of tulle to hold it all together. So pretty and dimensional! I did a bunch of sewing on it – too cool.
So, I’m not “too” far behind with my Project 12 layouts (see the sidebar button for Project 12) having only March to go after this. What I have realized is that I need to take more pictures!
This layout was super fun to put together. I used all my fav products – BasicGrey, glitter and stamping. The BasicGrey paper is from the “Blush” collection, remember that one? An oldie but goodie with the great tones of red/pink, brown and turquoise. How yummy!
I used a new Sizzix die that I got on clearance at Michael’s for like $3.99 or something silly! Its’ the heart beauty in mint glitter. All of the heart stamps are from various Ippity sets, just so pretty! Gotta love that Becky Fleck sketch too.

There’s this cool challenge going on Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine called Project 12. It breaks down the memory collecting into a 2-page spread of the month’s events. I like the concept and am working with it – so good so far!
Becky Fleck is doing the sketches for each month and you can either use that sketch each month or use 1 sketch over and over or even use no sketch. I enjoy working with Becky Fleck’s sketches, so I figured “why not”?
There will most definitely be scrapbook pages devoted to a specific something that went on during the month. Project 12 is just to serve as a snapshot of “here’s what happened this month”. My goal is to use BasicGrey for each Project 12 spread and to use Becky’s sketches.
So, without further ado, here’s January 2010:
