The un-organized Alter-nator!

I know I can't be the only paper crafter that starts papercrafting with the intentions of working on one project but then is distracted by another "project"! I went into my scrapbook room today to catch up on some kits I've been meaning to get done and I came across a few of my many notebooks I use to jot everything and everything in. I got looking at them and decided that I could compile all of my 'good ideas' into one book and be rid of the clutter of several of them. Well as some of you may know I just can't leave most items unaltered. I have to make it 'cute'! I told myself I was going to try and make it simple and this is what I came up with. It didn't take me long, and it was fun, though I did not accomplish the first task I went into my scrapbook room in the first place to do, at least I created, right?

March 2009 Cherish Club Layouts

Cherish Club is next Thursday, March 19th at 9am or 7pm.
Easter Layout - Blush Accent

Colors are : Sweet Leaf, Blush, Lilac Mist, Creme Brulee and Spring Iris for the base.

The bunny is from the adorable "Bunny Love" stamp set from the 2009 Spring Catalog.

The flower up in the corner is from the "Playful Petals" stamp set. This layout can easily be used as a spring layout or even a baby layout! Note that I stamped polka dots (my personal favorite!) instead of eggs to make this layout more versatile, change the title and vu-walla! you have yourself a custom two page layout!

Easter Layout - Buttercup Accent

Here's an example of the same layout but with Buttercup instead of Blush for those Mommies of all boys! Still pastel and springy but not so GIRLY! :)

Butterfly Wings Layout

Colors are: Chocolate, Hollyhock, Blush, and Bamboo

I just could not resist making a layout using this beautiful March Stamp of the Month set. I know it looks 'Valentiny' but you can never go wrong with a lovely layout like this! I am very pleased with how this layout turned out!

As easy as 1 - 2 - 3!

February was a crazy month at the Cheney household so in order to complete at least one layout for the month of February I pulled out a Level 1 kit and whipped out this layout. I like the challenge of the level 3's using the paper packets and stamps, but when time is short, level ones are the way to go! I added a little more by using the fun Fancy Cuts Botanicals and adding some ribbon.
