04/27/16 - April "Round Robin" Challenge

As you know I participate in a lot of challenges over at
One of my favorites is the "Ugly Paper" challenge; I shared April's layout a couple of blog posts prior to this one: April "Ugly" Paper
I have another favorite called the "Round Robin" challenge.
I've also shared a layout from a past challenge on my blog: March "Round Robin" Challenge
Here is a brief explanation of the challenge:
"There are teams of 4 people, one person for each week, similar to a relay race. The person assigned for week 1 in each group will start their team off with a layout depending on what the specs and twist will be. Then the following week, everyone assigned to week 2 will lift off their week 1 team member and so on. It's fun to see how a lift progresses from the first week to the fourth."
I am sharing w/ you my creation for the April Round Robin challenge, but unlike the last time I shared, I am the last person on my team instead of the first.
In order to get an idea of what inspired my layout I will share the proceeding layouts as well.
The first 4 images were NOT created by me:

As I was writing this post I realized, tt's been such a long time since I've done an actual blog challenge.
I think it's because not only do Challenges keep me busy, but there is more traffic there than on my blog...
Participating in challenges were there is more/frequent interaction inspires me (obviously)!
