Layout - love shared reading

Happy Monday!

Did you have a good weekend? I hope you got your craft on, I definitely did.  Lots of sewing and a layout to boot! Yeah!

I finally managed to get my hands on a Main Cake kit from A Piece of Cake Designs a few weeks ago, and it finally arrived last Monday.  My hubby teased me with photos of the box knowing that I was stuck at work and then off to a meeting and would barely get a chance to crack it open that day never mind playing with it.  For nearly a whole week the kit lay spread out at the end of our kitchen table - I couldn't bring myself to cut into any of it, lest I regret it.  Such scrumptious papers! And LOADS of embellishments!

Lately I find that I work best if I have a sketch to start me off.  So I picked up the first March sketch from Stuck?! Sketches (see below) and here's my take on it, kinda rotated and flipped:

The photo doesn't do justice to all the glittery, sparkly, shiny elements!  I can't wait to get started on my next layout using this kit!

Layout recipe:
Papers, cardstock, embellishments: A Piece of Cake Designs February Main Cake Kit
Other: cork arrow and chevron (Studio Calico)

Stuck?!: March 1 sketch

Scrapbook Boutique: Colour challenge

Do you share books (take turns to read pages/paragraphs) with your kids? The Boy mainly reads independently now, but sometimes he will read aloud to me and we will talk about the story just like we used to :D Love that kid!
