Hey ho there friends! I'm doing my best to get back into the swing of real life after an idylic spring break spent on the Mayan Riviera. It was warm, lovely, and margarita-packed - what else can a girl ask for? Oh, and I snapped a whopping 512 photos, so I'm happy to say my photo stash is restocked for awhile. Will share a few favorites soon!
But onto some important business I missed while on vacay...the release of the new Elle's Studio kits! Every month I find these so easy to create with, but this past month I was under a spring break crunch to get everything done before our departure. Which usually translates to late nights, vanished mojo and me panicking and having some sort of major meltdown that any two-year old would stand in awe of. I really shouldn't brag about my ability to rival a toddler tantrum, should I??
Despite the pre-holiday rush, though, these projects came together so seamlessly and effortlessly - and looking at them now, I know it's beause I had some amazing products to work with. Elle has such a great eye for pattern and color and her collections make creating so fun and stress-free! Case in point: for my first project, I pulled out all the aqua pieces in this month's kit and paired them with some of the more neutral Cienna papers. This whimsical page was the result:

On my second project, I stuck with a monochromatic theme as well, but this time went with pink. I staggered a few strips of patterned papers vertically and then layered lots of tags for a sweet Mother's Day card:

The April kit and cut files I used for these projects are still available, so go grab one while you can! And now i'm off to try and get back into this work thing...and make it to the end of the day without any meltdowns. Or margaritas.
Happy Hump Day!
