Very Fancy......

Happy April!!  I personally LOVE April.  It is much more springy than March and the weather is moody--Lovely, sunshiney days mixed in with glooming, grey days.  April also offers up loads of photo potential too.  Warm days at the park playing like crazy; baseball games; daffodils and tulips;  and birthday's too because both Bodie and Allora celebrate in April. 

So here is my first share for April, Very Fancy, featuring my little Maleia and her fancy lip-glossed lips.....

For a March Challenge at Gossamer Blue, we were asked to scraplift a layout by another club member.  I chose to lift this layout by Katie Rose73.
What I took from her layout, was the circle background.  With that in mind, I pulled an add-on kit from March that went really well with the colors in the instagram and went to work.
I punched several circles from two papers and played around with them.  I knew from the get go that I wanted to stitch a few circles around one of the circles, so with that in mind I played with the ratio of pink to floral circles and decided that I really liked the impact of just having one contrasting circle with the stitching and embelishments bringing your eye instantly to the pretty MME paper.  (And this why it takes me so long to kill a kit-I usually scraps with bits and pieces at a time!)
Sweet and simple.  Very me at this moment.
Happy Saturday!
