I may have skipped March's Take 12 layout, but I DID take the photos, which is the important part. And I didn't let being behind on my March page keep me from finishing my April page, though, and I hope you won't either if you're playing along with the Take Twelve photography challenge!
Here's what I created this time around, using coordinated products from Echo Park Paper.
I love how using coordinated paper lines makes creative decisions SO easy. I finished this layout in about 45 minutes this morning, with many cute little interruptions from Keira. And yes, I've warned Jeremy that if he pulls weird faces when I pull out the camera, I WILL scrapbook them. Doesn't hurt me!
And here's my sister-in-law, Suzanne's, layout for April. I love that she's playing along from Arizona; it's a fun way to feel connected from so far away.
And speaking of feeling connected from far away, I hope you'll join us at Ella Publishing Co. for Spring Training! It starts next week. You'll spend 2 weeks enjoying 18 videos that will educate you, inspire you, and hold you accountable to daily crafting. And why would you want to craft daily, you ask? Because it's the best way to help you exercise your scrapbooking muscles, try fun new things, and set yourself up so that creative accidents can happen! (And by "creative accidents," I mean awesome creative things that happen by accident, not accidentally stabbing yourself in the thigh with fine-point scissors.)
And because it's my company, and I can do this, I'm going to share with YOU the Welcome video that only registered "Craft-letes" get to see. It's me and Wendy reminding you why this is cool and issuing a little warm-up exercise to get you ready for next week!
And, if you've stuck with me through my sporadic blogging of the past few months, you can save 15% off Spring Training 2012 when you enter the code DUMBBELL! It's going to be RAD. Seriously. I can't wait!!!
