Sketch # 51/ Guest designer April Walker

Hello my dear blog readers!
I have not forgotten about you or the blog. I know it hasn't been much inspiration going on here lately and I will try to change that.
I started homeschooling the kids last week and it has taken up all my time.

Even though I can't inspire you today, I want to share some inspiration from one of my fabulous guest designers. Her name is April Walker and here is a little bit about her:

I’m April, 33 and live in the beautiful mountains of NC.  I’ve been married for almost 13 years to my amazing hubby Mark, and we have two gorgeous daughters, Emily & Madison.  I started Scrapbooking a little over 3 years ago and I am SO thankful for that!  Before Scrapbooking, the only hobby I truly enjoyed was photography, but taking tons of pictures and just sticking them in album after album got pretty boring. I knew that I wanted to start doing something more special with my pictures so one day I started looking around online to see what I could discover.  I stumbled across the community, started looking around at all the amazing creativity posted there, and I was totally hooked!  I went out the next day, got some supplies, and got to work.  Since that day, each and every time I sit down to start creating a layout, I feel so happy and blessed that I discovered a hobby that I could enjoy doing, while at the same create memories for my family.  There’s nothing better! 

Here's the new sketch that April worked with:

And her two gorgeous takes on it:

Here are more pretty layouts from April. These are based on some of my earlier sketches.

(  This is my favorite! I just love that photo and those muted colors together)

And last, but not least, enjoy some of April's own favorite layouts:


Thanks April for sharing your work with us. I feel very inspired to scrap now. I think I will go and make something in pink;)
