Scrap Rat April Kit

I have the wonderful opportunity to design for Scrap Rat, a vintage/supply shop and monthly kit club.  I just received the April kit on Friday and had to scrap all Sunday morning with it - it's gorgeous!  And unfortunately, sold out.  But I wanted to show you how beautifully coordinated Amanda's kits are by sharing a few layouts.

First, another senior portrait layout of my sister, Elizabeth.  She loves vintage-y things and this kit was perfectly suited to her tastes:

I emphasized my title with images of things that fly - butterflies, birds, the hot air balloon....  She loved it :).

My other sister and brother-in-law are visiting, which means I was able to meet my new little neice in person just a few days ago!  This layout is of their Christmas photo:

I had fun with masking and white mist :).

And this layout features a couple of their maternity photos.  How cute is that pink bow?

I punched hearts from the vintage extras and the kraft bag that holds the embellishments to create my background.  I love the whimsical feel it gives the page.

I still have oodles of papers and embellishments left, so I have two more layouts in the works.  I'll share those as soon as I can.  If you're interested in Amanda's kits, especially if you're in the UK, be sure to visit her site.  The May kit is on its way to me and I can't wait to open that box!  Have a great day, everyone!
