Monthly Moments: April...

Hi! I'm back to share a few of the new Monthly Moments products for April and a couple other new things coming out on the 15th at Papertrey Ink. First up, a layout that was inspired by the umbrellas in the Monthly Moments: April stamp set!

I was looking for April pictures and found this fun pic of my girls in April of 2009. It cracks me up! The journaling tells about what I see in this photo, very indicative of their relationship...Taylor's humor and poor Kati has to deal with it. Ha. Sibling love.

Under the photo, I added a pocket to hold more pics. (I completely forgot to insert the extra photos in the pocket before I took the pics of my layout- sorry!) It's cut with the Monthly Moments: Journal Pocket 1. I have a series of cute pics from this day I want to tuck inside.

I was in the mood to paint something to add to my layout, so I painted some raindrops with watercolors on a scrap piece of paper, painting them darker at the top, making them smaller and lighter as I painted down. When dry, I printed my journaling over the top and trimmed it down to fit on my page.

The "hello" and arrow were cut with the new Phrase Play #3 die and the big words were stamped with the new Wet Paint II stamp set. The sayings in the Wet Paint II set are perfect for layouts and pocket pages! I used a couple of the yellow journaling cards from the April Monthly Moments kit, and the new Cover Plate: Modern Cross Quilt in white (under the hello). "Remember This" and the umbrellas and rain drops are from the Monthly Moments: April stamps.
