I don't know what's come over me, but I've created a ton of layouts in the month of April already! Maybe it's because I have only scrapped a couple layouts a month...but I had so much fun sitting down in my free time to work on my pages. Best thing about it? I've been printing them off right away to put in my PL album! That has never happened before. I mean, I've been digital scrapbooking since 2005...that's 7 years worth and I've probably only printed off 80 layouts or so in all those years. It feels good to get these off my computer and into my physical album!

I had a lot of fun putting this week together and surprisingly, it came together pretty quickly. Usually I try to work on some cards either Tuesday or Wednesday night so I can get a head start on it. But this week I didn't have any time to work on it, so I worked on a few bits Saturday afternoon and finished up Sunday afternoon. But it all came together in about a couple of hours, so I was pleased!
Here's week 14...my two page spread...
We didn't do anything fun for April Fools day, but as the day was coming to a close, my middle said, "Mom, I have a puppy in my room...April Fools"...and I just thought it was too funny not to include in my album. Coincidentally, I had just taken some funny face pictures of him earlier in the day...so I paired the quote up with the pictures and made these two cards. Makes me smile every time I see them!
I like how this card turned out...wanted to document going back to school after Spring Break. I used these really cool alphas by Michelle...I love them!
...and here's side two...
I've been wanting to add in my daughter's spelling list forever, but never really had the space and I couldn't quite figure out how I wanted to add it. Did I want to add an insert? or a smaller insert? or just her list instead of her test? Well I finally decided to scan it and shrink it down to a 4x6 and it's perfect!
We had a lot going on this weekend, by the end of the week I had taken over 50 Instagram photos! Only sad thing is, I didn't break out my Canon 7D at all! It's starting to collect some dust, I'll have to remedy that soon!
Anyway, over the weekend we did lots of fun stuff...girls night out with the oldest and Easter stuff on Saturday. There were so many photos, I decided to use these photo collages by Lili...they are so perfect for lots of photos!
I hope you had a fabulous Easter holiday and a great week...now onto the next! :)
