04/22/18 - April "Ugly Paper" Challenge


Today I bring you "Ugly Paper April 2018" Edition.

First a reminder of the rules (you can skip this part if you already know them):
  
1. After signing up, the host gives your name and address to another participant
2. The other participant sends you 2 "ugly" papers and at least one ugly embellishment
3. You MUST use both papers; the embellishment(s) is optional
4. You are allowed to use other items as well, as long as the 2 "ugly" papers are included in the layout
5. You are allowed to alter the papers and, if used, the embellishment(s) but they must still be recognizable 


Road Map and Sunflowers, oh my!

April Uglies

"This Way to the Pumpkin Patch"

Journaling:
"Madison and Joseph
10.7.07
Yucaipa Pumpkin Patch"

The choice of photos was inspired by the sunflowers in the bottom left-hand photo (barely visible but they're there) and the photo of my daughter running down the dirt path.

I didn't use the embellishment this time and I'm fairly certain thats a first for me,  but don't quote me on that!

04/11/18 - St Pattys / Christmas in January

2 different types of layouts
2 different years
2 different holidays
 
Both created this month:
 
 
12x12 Pocket Page w/ (1) digital PL card printed from the PL App: "So Much Fun"
 
"California Irish Festival"
(click to enlarge and read journaling)
 
I've gotten into pocket pages this year and I'm really loving them!
I also am learning new techniques as I get used to the format and I'm finding THAT fun.

I'll definitely be sharing more, even going back to my earlier ones... eventually.

Also - I've gotten into stamping...
Most stamps on this page are from Kelley Purkey.

"Whoville Xmas Time Celebration"
- Date 01/24/16

I'm hosting an Amusement Park Challenge and a Christmas Past challenge over at SB.com; this satisfies both the challenges.

Thanks for stopping by...
Hope all is well!
