April Pages . . . created by Sharon!

Hi Everyone!

I have been anxiously awaiting Spring and it seems to finally be here. I am very happy and excited to be sharing the layouts that I created for April! ♥  So here goes . . .


My first two pages were made with the amazing "Wanderlust" collection:



I absolutely love this gorgeous collection!  To me, it is perfect for vacation and summer photos.


♥ My First Layout:  Fantastic Getaway



I fussy cut a favorite photo of my daughter, Anne, taken back in the Summer of 2013 to use as the basis for my page.  I thought it would be wonderful to use "Seascape" as my background paper.  Isn't the paper beautiful?



I featured 2 different laces here - Lace 6 and Lace 11.  And I LOVED embossing directly on my page using the Buttercup Embossing Powder along with one of the crackle texture stamps in the "sandy" area of the background paper.

Here are some close ups:

Paper: Wanderlust "Escape"
Chipboard: Wanderlust Chipboard Shapes

Seedlings: Glass
Lace:  Lace 6, Lace 11



My Second Layout:  Enjoy the Journey



I found a wonderful photo of the carousel at Bryant Park that I took during one of our visits to NYC!  I thought the lyrics from a favorite Joni Mitchell song of mine, "Circle Game," would be perfect here.  

Again, I thoroughly enjoyed using the paper from the Wanderlust Collection.  This time I picked  the flip side of "Pacific Coast" to use in my background: 



I just love these beautiful colors!!


And I decorated the chipboard carousel horse here on my page, too.

Here are some close ups:





I also want to mention that I loved working with the Ivory, Green Ivory and Antique Gold embossing powders and the Wintergreen Seedlings to create my Carousel Horse!

Blue Fern Product List:
Paper: Wanderlust "Pacific Coast" and "Memento"
Chipboard: Carousel Horse, Wanderlust Printed Chipboard Shapes
Embossing Powder:  Ivory, Green Ivory, Antique Gold
Flowers: Apricot Blooms, Chesterville Blooms
Seedlings: Wintergreen


I thoroughly enjoyed making both of these pages using Blue Fern Studios' Wanderlust
collection  - using all of their items made it a pleasure to scrap!


And my third page was made using the gorgeous "Remnants" collection:



My Third LayoutRemember this Day


I came across this treasured photo of my dad and I taken on my wedding day on March 3, 1990.  I have always loved this photo and thought that using the "Remnants" collection would be a perfect way to scrap it. 


Just gorgeous!!!


I used the lyrics from Amy Grant and Gary Chapman's song 
"My Father's Eyes."  I get teary eyed just thinking of this moment!!!

Some close ups:




I totally enjoyed using the Turkish Panel chipboard embossed with "Ivory" embossing powder!  And embossing directly on my page using the firework-like stamps from the "Christmas Collage" stamp set.

I am going to cherish this page for years to come thanks to the Blue Fern Studios products!
