Scrap the Boys April Challenge!

Woo hoo! First of the month again - new challenge day! (Surely I am not the only one who gets excited by that? LOL) First up this month, I am sharing my take on the April challenge at Scrap the Boys. This month it is a gorgeous mood board challenge, that looks like this...

And here is my take on it...
{Papers by Basic Grey; Kaisercraft; also Kaisercraft Captured Moments pocket cards & ephemera}
Published in Scrapbooking Memories magazine Vol 18 No 4

This layout was another stash-buster for me. (Can you believe those papers were first released in 2009?) I paired my "vintage" papers with some "modern" pocket cards and embellishments and voila! Everything old is new again! (I did put a little twist on the theme by using some "new vintage" in the form of the Kaisercraft ephemera.)

{Wood veneer, sequin bow and flowers all from D-lish Scraps}

{More D-lish Scraps goodies - flair and flower}

Last but not least, my handwritten journaling. (I am quite impressed that I have kept this resolution up!) This layout was the second one I have now completed using hospital photos of the boys. (It was nowhere near as hard as the first!) I am going to keep trying to get them done, as they are such important memories to record.

Thanks for popping in today, I hope I have tempted you into joining us at Scrap the Boys this month. Such a stunning mood board to be inspired by, and as always fabulous sponsors supporting it!
Happy scrapping! X
