Share Smiles

For my last April challenge I combined Stuck?!'s April 15th challenge and Let's Get Sketchy's week 3 challenge and made them into a double layout!

Here is the awesome Stuck?! Sketch that I used as my first page in my double layout.
Here is the Let's Get Sketchy sketch I used for the second page in my double layout.

I just competed another Christmas layout from our Sea World Christmas trip, but I had more Christmas photos I wanted to use in my scrapbook. I get tired of holiday pages because I feel so limited to traditional colors and whatnot, so I wanted to do something different with this page (not the same old red and green!).

I love how contagious my son's smiles are, he really does spread joy with his smiles. Everywhere we go he makes people smile-joy is infectious!


I have never worked with texture paste before, but I really wanted to try I made my own texture paste. I have no idea how my homemade version compares to store bought, but I am hooked. I also used my Cricut to make contact paper stencils for the texture paste. I think a little more practice and I will be better at this technique, but I loved the way this came out! ((and I used baby powder in the paste so my layout smells wonderful too!))

Hope y'all enjoy my layout and have a scrap'n good time!
