Happy April and welcome to a new Template Mash-up Challenge! Spring always feels like a new beginning. The weather is turning around and we’ve been busy cleaning up after a very cold and snowy winter. Spring break was full of activities and now we are getting back to a routine with spring sports and trying to get the house cleaned up and ready for the warmer weather.
I’ve just recently gone back to work and it is becoming more challenging to find time to sit down and record the memories. Fortunately, the many beautiful templates that are available at Designer Digitals make it so much easier to get our memories recorded.
For this month’s challenge I’ve chosen to go with two recent templates in the store. First, I was really taken by the beautiful blended layers of Katie’s Blendables Layered Template No.103. I love how the paint looks like smears on the page. It provides such an attractive background.
For the photos, I loved the horizontal strip of photo frames in the Studio DD Layer Works No.1080. The only thing was that I didn’t really have spring-themed photos, so I removed some of the elements to make it a bit simpler.
Here is what I came up with. I wanted to document how proud I am of how mature the kids have gotten, especially when we travel.
Supplies used in addition to the two templates: Spring Meadows Scrapbooking Bundle (what a beautiful collection!)
Don’t forget to post your pages in the Template Challenge Gallery and when you use ALL DD product on your challenge page you should post a link of your page in the April Challenge Participation thread so that it will count toward your savings in the rewards program. I can’t wait to see how you are inspired by mixing the styles of these two templates!
