Scrapbook Daisies Blog Hop!

Hello!!!  And welcome to the next stop on the Scrapbook Daisies April blog hop.  If you have arrived here from Michelle's blog, then FABULOUS!  You are on the right track!  If not, then please consider starting at the beginning of the hop at the Scrapbook Daisies blog so that you don't miss out on any of the fun!

I got to work with the "Hattie" kit this month featuring My Minds Eye! I Am SOOOO loving the colors of the kit... and the chipboard embellies are AWESOME~

Here is one of my layouts with this kit. I used the Sketch from My Minds Eye this month to complete this layout about my 3 sons.
My friend Kris pointed out to me that I DID use the theme "April Showers", and after taking a closer look at the
 Design Team's interpretations, I have to agree!
April showers --- May flowers --- I used flowers!
April showers --- water --- my use of all the blue color!
April showers --- water --- sailboats sail on water  use of the sailboat embellie)
April showers ---water---waves ---wavy ric-rak

They are not just boys....they are BROTHERS.  There is no bond as strong as the  bond between brothers.

Next up is my Scraplift of the Fabulous MARTHA!  I was honored to be able to lift one of her layouts this month...and she has SOOOO much to choose from!  I chose this one featuring her adorable son...SUCH A CUTIE! 
It was a perfect match to the colors of this kit, and I enjoyed the challenge of trying to imitate her style with the blocking and journaling strips! ALl of the supplies are from my kit except the alphas.  Here is my lift....
It is my son Dayne on his 2nd grade field trip.  These four kiddos are completely bonded at the hip, I think!  They are always together.  I am so happy that he has established friendships like this at such an early age.
***Edited to add...this morning he took this layout to school to share with his friends! Lol.

And here is my FAVORITE layout that I created from this kit.  
I used the April PageMaps and created this...

For some reason, I have been REALLY into quilts lately.  So much so that I have been "Window Shopping" on the internet for a new one! LOL!  When I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!  All of the supplies are from my kit except the alphas and mini buds that came from my stash and the crocheted lace trim around the quilt that came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I thought it was the PERFECT finishing touch to this project!   It was left over from the project I did for my first DT post over there in May...I am SO excited...I can't wait to share it with you!
