New Life - The Studio Challenge

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!  Since we are so far from family now, it was kind of a bittersweet Easter for me.  But we had a really nice, simple, family day that we all enjoyed very much.  And I'm really excited that Spring Break is over and school is back in session :).

There is a new challenge up at the Studio!  The challenge this time is to incorporate the theme  of new life, interpreted however you wish.  I decided to do a layout about my new life as a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom). 

I used spring colors to enhance the theme and had fun making a rainbow of glimmer mists. I added little stitches, my favorite gingham and pom-pom ribbons, and a cute little gingham stick pin that I've had in my stash for quite some time.  I used this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays for design inspiration.

What new life would you scrap about?  A garden?  A new little one?  Repurposed clothing or furniture?  There are so many ways this theme could be interpreted - the possibilities are almost endless.  Check out what the DT did for more inspiration.  I hope to see your take in the gallery soon!

Enjoy your Monday, Tessa
