Finally, the weather is a better - the heat was just too much for the babies (myself included!) 
Last night, I finished this layout using the April Swirlydoos kit. I used the sketch from Get Creative and then went nuts with layering. 

Here is the sketch

Here are some close ups. 

DD was very upset when she read the title (she will be in G1 in the fall and it took her a while to read the title - she did not read the cute, cute small print underneath. Only when I read it to her, she liked it. Good lesson on READING THE FINE PRINT!!!!)

I had this fun, fussy ribbon, which I twisted over a pencil and then glued it onto the page. I like the effect and the added dimension. 

Off to do some chores and clean out the refrigerator-  one of my least favorite things to do in the kitchen but since I am not keen on science experiments in my fridge, it has to be done. Sigh. I would rather sit and play with my papers LOL-

Thanks for stopping by. 
All the best,
