Spring is here! Diana, Wendy, and I have Spring / Easter layouts inspired by this week's sketch. I kept the sketch simple. I made it using the app called Skitch, and lately have been doodling quick sketches for layouts on this app to do later. It gives me a great jump start.
I love how Diana interpreted the sketch with the one large photo and title. Just beautiful.
Diana loves the blues, yellows, and greens in the Sweet Shoppe and Pinwheel collection, especially for Spring layouts.
The patterns and colors work so well for a happy page to celebrate the start of Spring.
Sweet Shoppe (Gumball Paper, Circles & Tags), Pinwheel (Kite Strings Paper, Embellishment bundle, Chipboard stickers, Chit Chat stickers), Handmade (ABC stickers)
For my layout, I kept the three photos with the idea of using photos of new things we have have gotten to start the season.
I fussy cut and layered the cartwheel paper for the circles and added more stitched circles.
I love the black chevron paper and flair from the Sweet Shoppe collection. It adds texture but my Spring photos also had black in the them, and it helped ground the entire layout.

And here's how Wendy interpreted the sketch:
Wendy had this to say about her layout:
Just looking at these Easter morning photos doesn’t even begin to tell the story of our family’s Easter last year. The kids look healthy and strong and happy, don’t they? I guess that’s what the promise of sugary treats will do to a kid! Unfortunately, each of these kiddos was so so sick all of Easter weekend. The flu visited our home and didn’t want to leave – it was not a fun weekend (or following week, which just happened to be spring break).
