All about the altering

Hello ladies! Can you believe that it is already April? Well I can't but one thing I know is that this month's kit from THE PAPER NICHE is off the chain! The ladies did one heck of a job putting this one together. At first I struggled with it because I am used to working with bright, busy papers but once I took out my paints and inks there was no stopping me. Here is what I did and please note that there are a whole lotta pictures ; )

April 2010 Kit

"My Besties" this is a page of me and my 2 besties scrapping at The Paper Niche this month, the journaling basically says that prior to scrapping we cried together in the parking lot, lent a shoulder and laughed about the horrible day we had had and then had the greatest night together, they bring out the best in me these two. The musical notes were stamped with my Prima stamp which is not in the kit but you can get it at The Niche, I embossed the bird with my 7 Gipsies stamp and the border edge was also embossed with my American Crafts stamps that I bought at The Niche.

April 2010 Kit

Me and Jiggy Jen celebrating her 30'th Bday this past November and cancer free, journalling is in the back but I thought the "Encourage your hopes not your fears" stamp by TIME HOLTZ was perfect for this layout of her.

April 2010 Kit

This is a layout of Ash Wednesday, I had to take the girls to church by myself since Mr. Hubby was working and Soli's asthma was at it's worst, 1/2 was through the mass she started wheezing harder and I saw that she was about to have a melt down so I steeped outside with them and finished the mass from behind the glass and I took a picture, if you look close enough you can see my girls reflection off the glass. I placed the journalling right under the paper with the flowers and it basically says that on a day like today the only thing that kept me from braking down was my faith in The Lord.

And last but not least is my mini album made with the left over corrugated cardboard
