I didn't think I'd really like the April Studio Calico kit when I saw it online, but ever since I've laid eyes on it I've been inspired to scrap a bunch of my vintage pics! I LOVE this kit! The colors are just so ME and the papers are just so scrappable...LOL. I usually get a set of extra papers with each kit, but I didn't this time because I've had so much leftover - but that was a big mistake this month!! I think all the layouts I've made with this kit are my most favorite ever!! I love the one with Michael when he was 17 - oh to be young again!! The cork buttons are too cool and I happened to have some Karen Foster cork to mat the picture! For aye-aye captain I used some Claudine Hellmuth paints and a stamp from an older Studio Calico kit. For the "my room" layout - I used an older (November) Studio Calico kit with the new April kit - that's how well these go together! I was looking for a piece of yellow cardstock, and I discovered that I wanted to use a lot of what was left of the November kit - which wasn't much! I did some misting and added some Zva pearl bling from my stash. Love how different they all look - yet all from the same kit!! Can ya tell I really love this kit??? TFL!!
