One last "procrastination week" layout

 I leave in the morning to do the hard thing and talk to Mom about the next chapter in her life. I have managed to get the office close to ready for her to stay in, but have also managed to really get lost in the craft cave some too. When I got sad while getting ready I would escape for awhile and get lost in my memories. What a blessing this hobby is for me.
   I used the April "Be Our Guest" sketch at the Scraproom. You must check out this months post as my scrappy friend Suzanne is the guest. Her layout is fabulous!!
  So here is the awesome sketch. A copy came along with my first ever kit this month and as soon as I saw it knew I would use it over and over.
And here is my first go at it.....
I am absolutely thrilled with the Bo Bunny Believe for Easter pictures. I love the bright colors instead of the traditional pastels. I used the Paper Smooches tag die for my tags and then a heart punch with some of the left overs, I just can't waste any of this wonderful collection! I tried stamping directly on the paper for the JOY title (Unity Stamps) but though I was able to stamp it perfectly on scrap 3 times, it was a hot mess on the layout ugh... chipboard and tag die to the rescue!! I actually like it better than the original plan. Pulled out the Pretty Pink Posh sequins and the Prima wire thread and a few other embellies from the recesses of my stash and it is done.
  I am going to try and get a plan figured out to take some photos and a kit with me as I anticipate some alone time in the hotel room this week end.  I am hoping that playing with my memories will keep me distracted.
  Thank you for stopping by! I really hope that you are able to have fun playing with your memories today!
