Today Scraps of Elegance reveals its April Kit-Awakening. When you open up your box Spring will awaken right before your eyes, with all the gorgeous Spring colors, and fabulous Spring embellishments.

 Each kit comes with an inspiring sketch from Charlotte aka Suepup:

 And the following is my take on this month's sketch.

 This layout features a photo of Emmie at the beach while on vacation with her Mom and Dad. I started with a layer of the beautiful Glitz paper then layered on a Doilie. I then punched a layer of the kit pp and then took Crepe Paper and pleated it for some texture. Next, I heavily water distressed a paper layer, and then layered on another piece of Pink Paislee paper from the kit.

 Here you can see all the dimension and texture of the multiple layers of paper, with a layer of white ribbon from my stash and a layer of trim from the kit. I added on a silver Tim Holtz button and then popped on one of the Magical Dragonflies included in the kit and that you can also find in my Etsy Shop.

 I adhered Emmie's photo and then used some of the Pink Paislee rub ons to border the photo. I then added a Shabby Mauve Texture Rose from my Etsy and two small mini roses that I hand tinted to match, to the top corner of the photo.  I then overlayed the bottom of the photo and layout with one of the Glitz Peek a Boos.

 For the bottom corner floral piece, I layered in a small Doilie, some of the Prima Hermosa flowers from the kit, some more of the mini roses, another Shabby Mauve Texture Rose, and a sweet Prima Art Tile from this month's embellishment add on.

 For the top cluster, I repeated the flower process, and then tied a sheer pink bow through the Prima Vintage Trinket and added it in. I then popped a small Magical Dragon onto the corner fold down.

I loved all the sweet Spring colors and embellishments. They helped me to capture the sweet innocence of  Emmie playing on the beach. Thanks for the visit! ~Renea
