April Top Five #1 - Easter

As part of my year of INSPIRATION, each month I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from the previous month.

My Easter layout was inspired by materials in the BPC 15 Minute Layouts class, but it (of course) took me much longer to complete (approximately an hour).

Honestly this is not one of my favorite layouts, but I really like the FUN photos and am glad to have them preserved in our 2015 chronological album. And I'm thrilled to have used a few older supplies, like this title block and the layered flowers and circles that have been in my stash several years.

The last few days have been very productive around here, so I'm feeling extremely optimistic about catching up with my Top Five layouts by the end of this month! How are you doing on keeping up with scrapping this year's stories?

You have such a knack for using bright and cheery colors without making your layouts look garish!

I seem to be scrapping more quickly this year, which is good. Even so I wouldn't be able to produce a page in 15 minutes..not one I wouldn't want to tweak a bit. So I like the thought that you took a bit longer and made it more "you".

15 minutes to complete a page?! The minimum for me is 30 lol! Glad that you are getting your favourites scrapped. Like the bright colours in this one.
