April {SAS}sy Reveal!!

Hi everyone! I am SUPER excited to share my reveal with you all this month from Scrap Attack! Lauri sent me an arrangement of MAGNIFICENT supplies...including the Scrap Within Reach Urban Garden Collection!
I also had some gorgeous Prima papers, swirls and flowers along with a few other bits and pieces of perfectly coordinating papers!! I was truly in scrappy heaven as I was creating this month!
Let me just tell you.....This stuff is flippin' GORGEOUS! I would never have thought it was this awesome just by the online photo.

Here is "Dayne". I tried to achieve a look of rustic cowboy...complete with the name on the "belt buckle" that I created. I altered the coloring of my photos to a deeper sepia tone to compliment well with the colors of these papers. I loved the effect it created

"You Are a Star" is my son during his 1st grade performance. He was playing Kenny Chesney all the way down to singing one of his songs! I thought he was stinkin' cute...and I wanted a "center stage" effect. This page by Prima gave me just that opportunity! It reminded of curtains at first, but the more I played, the more I saw my son on stage! I punched the stars and outlined them with 3-d fabric paint for them to pop better...and they are all raised up off of the page by the pleats in the "curtain".

"Live Love {in the moment}" is about the bond between my youngest DD an my hubby. They are always together....ALWAYS. I immediately thought of these photos from vacation last year when I saw the gorgeous colors in my kit! I did alter the bright colors to once again compliment the softer colors...and I so love the effect!

"Six Flags" is about the ONE and only time we got to take the kids to Astroworld in Houston before it closed. Hubby and I both grew up going to that theme park, and have a lot of memories of it...and unfortunately, our children only have this one. I wanted to create a feeling of nostalgia with the muted colors and soft elements...and still maintain the theme park I added in the flags and muted the colors of the photo...and I think it did the trick.

"Garden" is just daughter in the middle of her Great Grandmother's flower garden! She had actually stopped hunting for eggs and started sniffing the flowers!! LOL I tried to create a magical effect with wisteria vines hanging and lots of stickles in this one!

And "Having Fun" is my oldest DD doing JUST THAT! Her favorite thing to do in the summer is stay in the pool! There is no opportunity to get photos of this chick in actual CLOTHES during the summer months! LOL. Lauri's sketch worked perfectly with this paper, and the photo worked perfect with the colors! A match made in heaven!

Thanks for looking! I absolutely LOVED everything this month...and I know you will too! head on over the the Scrap Attack Scrapbooking Online Store and grab some of these for yourself!!
