April Artastic, PL + Creative Scrappers #265

APRIL inspiration from Charles Blackman - The Chess Game

I really loved the colours in this painting - the yellows, the checker resonated in my LO in polka dots with a pop of yellow,  and red....for vibrancy. 
Back in September, Paige went back overseas with her school friends and their French teacher (who is amazing)  and the one thing she wanted to do....weeeell there were actually two..... go to Disneyland in Paris (which we didn't get to go to last April) and get some Minnie Mouse ears!!!  She was so excited and sent some photos through her phone to me (so not great quality) with the message "I'M HERE, I'M HERE!!!!!"  
Simple Stories 'Say Cheese' are just sooooo perfect for these kinds of LO's!

Project Life

Sorry about some of the pics have sun 'flare' on them - grr...
Our little Chirp....  boy she grew fast!

This sketch has a Project Life feel to it, so decided to use it for my
Even though I've done the sketch in a 12x12 orientation...its great to give my PL album something different, yet still be in keeping with the PL style.
I really enjoyed this!  
I've tipped it on its side

How lucky is your girl! Your page is great. The black background make your bright colours pop. Your embellishments are simple but add so much to your page. Love it. Thanks for playing along with our challenge at ARTastic.
I enjoyed your project life pages too. Wish I was that organised.

My gosh, you've gotten so many layouts done! And how beautiful they are! Loving all your PL pages. That last 12x12 layout works really well with the PL style. Absolutely love that grid design, and you used it beautifully. All the stamping looks amazing. Absolutely LOVE that Disney layout, too! Wow, what a bold and graphic design. SO eye catching!

Sometimes I think it is so hard to get pages that do Disney to look special. This is FANTASTIC. Love the way you carried the theme through. Thanks for playing with ARTastic!
