April Sunshine

brings great photo opportunities.
And a layout about it.
Eventually :-)

I mentioned previously how excited I am to be Guest Designing for Tidbitz in Time this month, and I tell you the truth when I say that their kits are Fab-U-LOUS!

Especially if you love the romantic/shabby-chic/vintage vibe on your pages. If you can't go past a piece of Prima or Webster's Pages paper without drooling then this is the kit club for you :-) Look at all the delicious Prima goodies in the July kit for a start!

Now, if you've followed my blog for long enough you'll probably know that Prima and Webster's (whilst extraordinarily beautiful) aren't the usual way I roll. But I think it's important to remain true to yourself so I had to adapt all the Prima papers to suit my style.

And trust me when I say that, because I first had one very failed attempt with this kit to do a more 'Prima-y' type layout and let's just say I won't be sharing that one in a hurry!

But everything on this layout, with the exeption of the black cardstock, is from the kit. The white grungy background paper is the b-side of one of the Prima papers and it made the perfect blank slate to be misted and stencilled and doodled on, and so it evolved into what you see here.

Same with the Prima candy-gem bead clusters. They're so beautiful, but I just couldn't seem to carry it off adding it to my layout as it was. So I pulled it to pieces and added the beads individually! Voila.... one scrappy scrapper doctors her products :-)

PS. I'll be drawing a winner for my Two Peas voucher tomorrow, so you've got about 24hrs to get your last minute entries in. All the details are here.
