For my layout I used some photos I just took of the kids. We've finally moved into our new house and on the first decent day the kids and I went to explore the "back yard". I can't wait until they are old enough I can just shoo them out the back door to go play on their own. They'll have so much fun!
For my title and quote, I cut the words with my circut after laying them out in Adobe Illustrator. I added color to the title with my ink pads and dauber.
And who better to quote in March than the dear Dr. Seuss.

Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #52

March 1st brings us another layout sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap! And what a fun sketch! Upload your layout to the blog for a chance to win a great prize!

I chose two pictures of Rylan from last year's Easter Egg Hunt. The kids understood the concept a lot better and they had a lot of fun running down eggs. Rylan though figured out fast that there was candy inside the eggs and thought that was the greatest!
I used bits of scrap paper and buttons to punch out some embellishments. Layering different circles and banners and topping it with a button.
I couldn't find the right thing for my title piece so I made one in Adobe Illustrator, printed and fussy cut it out.
Items I used in this layout:
Dear Lizzy • Neapolitan • 12x2 Paper Pad
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Citrus Circle
Echo Park • Country Drive • Apron Strings
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Happy Spots
Echo Park • Sweet Summertime • Borders
