April Bring in the Sun by Kathryn

Design Team Member Kathryn submitted this layout for The April Bring in the Sun Challenge.  She said:  Scrap Our Stash Challenge theme is Sunshine. What a lovely challenge this has been during a chilly March, although the sun is shining as I type this, so lovely! Here is a layout of my daughter Emma, at about 20 months old here during our first overseas holiday in Mallorca in 2008. I have used the bright colours to reflect the sunny day at the beach (it was sunny, just doesn’t look it in these photos for some reason!), and to compliment Emma’s lovely bright swimming costume and Quack Quack the duck, which we still have! Recipe: · Making Memories Hilary Stamp shaped paper, with a selection of Bo Bunny yellow and orange dotty papers to make a sunshine background shape (Kitchen Spice and Ella Bella Blossom) · A mixture of Prima, Mulberry and other flowers in bright colours, highlighted with a variety of brads and diamond stickles. The flower pins are Maya Road trinket pins, which I love. I bought them recently passing a craft shop on my way down to my head office a few weeks ago (well I only made about an hour’s detour, lol) and I am desperate to get more of them in other colours. · I used a selection of bright ribbon and buttons to finish off and the title ‘Sun Girl’. I think the title is Papermania, but I gleefully throw all my packaging away all the time so I never have much idea who made some of my older stash!
Thanks!
Kathryn
