April Template Challenge

Happy April!  I have a real treat for you this month.  As part of this month's template challenge Liz gave us her original layout to share!  I love looking back to see how we grow as scrappers.  Part of it is the quality of the digi supplies available but even more than that we learn new techniques and become more comfortable with our personal style.  In short, we evolve.



Liz's original layout is great.  I love how she captured and documented each of her girls' personalities. Were I to see it in the gallery, I would definitely leave a compliment.  
And then I see this one!  OMGoodness! The bones of the template are the same and yet this second layout just pops!  Part of it is the color scheme but I really think it's more than that.  I love the layers at the upper left and lower right corners.  I love the mats on the photos and the bold stripe on the background.  Even the font choice fits perfectly with the crisp lines and modern feel of this page.

 Thanks to everyone for playing along in March.  I'll be sending out participation prizes and well as the winning prize soon.  Here are the official rules for our monthly challenge: 

The Blog Challenge Rules (and fine print!):  
  1. Use the featured template (above) to create a layout or hybrid project.  Feel free to modify the template but make certain we can still recognize it as a version of the original.  
  2. Upload your completed layout to the ScrapPin gallery at Scrap Orchard or a photo sharing site of your choice. (Please do not upload to a site that will require me to register in order to view the layout.  Use either a Scrap Orchard gallery or someplace such as Photobucket or TinyPic to host your layout)
  3. If uploading to the ScrapPin gallery at Scrap Orchard please include the following in addition to your other hashtags:  #swlblogapril2013 (feel free to copy and past this hashtag)
  4. Come back to this blog post and leave a comment with a link to your completed layout by April 30, 2013
  5. Winner of the $5 coupon will be chosen and announced the first Tuesday in May!  Non-winning participants will receive a participation prize so remember to leave us a way to reach you when you link your layouts!
Happy Scrapping!
Kimberley

Wow! That's my page!! While I appreciate the love, I need to point out that the template I used was the February template, not the March template. But, thanks for the compliment!
