April Sketch Challenge

Happy April Fool's Day! And what a gorgeous day it is.
Yesterday I was unable to join my fellow scrappers (Annette, Kim, Cheryl & Mary) in Orange, so to solve the problem, we "Skyped" which was a lot of fun - thanks girls! Below is what I was working on while socialising with the girls.
The past week has seen my family being able to tick a few boxes and things are looking a lot brighter, so when the lovely Jane from contacted me and asked me if I'd like to be the FEATURED MEMBER for April, of course I jumped at the chance, which was the icing on the cake for my week :)  As part of my duties I was asked to create a layout as inspiration for the April Sketch Challenge, which is set by the very talented Julie Winks  So pop on over to the The Scrapboxx and have a go at this month's Challenge.  This is my example:

And a closie:

I couldn't resist using the buttons from Purple Pumpkin and the chippy word is from ScrapFX. Flowers & pp from Kaisercraft, Carolee's Creations alphas, the banner is made from Stampin' Up! c/stock & pps, Maya Road clock, hessian and muslin.
Thanks for dropping by :)
