I am almost at the end of my April kit from Swirlydoos. Again, it was full with yummy stuff and great embellishments. I based this layout on the monthly sketch challenge from Artful Delight. I followed pretty much the design of it - I just replaced the hexagons with the Prima Art Tiles.

I hand cut the stamp design, distressed it and inked it. I then stamped the background. I am not a big stamper, but quite pleased how it turned out. I cut out the ATC cards from the patterned paper, colored the bling with copic markers and then put everything together. 

The photos were taken at our recent trip to the Schönbrunn Zoo. I dressed DS in a monkey outfit (could not resist LOL). My cousin is holding my sweet godchild and on the other photo  is my nephew with DD. They are both full of energy and always quite fun!

Here is a close up of the title and the flower cluster.

This is the sketch from Artful Delight.

All the best,
