Color Me Miki April kit--Happy Joy Joy

Happy Happy April, everyone! Wow, already into our 4th month of 2010. I'm happy to report today is the first day of Easter break for the kids. Although I have work today and all of next week, I do have tomorrow off..LOL. We were so busy in the month of March. I got some scrapping done in the beginning of the month, then halfway through we had visitors, had outings, and just other life happenings. So last night I busted out most of the layouts here. *yawn*, finally at 2am, I called it quits.

Let's get on with the show, shall we..... I'd like to present Happy Joy Joy from Color Me Miki. Lots of fun stuff from new My Mind's Eye. I esp love the Prima fabric tree and wanted to use it for a special layout. And check out the the glitter action, man!! Here is the kit, click to see a larger image.

Here are a couple quick and easy card. I used the cute die cuts for both and work especially well with children's card. Here's one for a baby shower...this is pretty small, measuring only about 4x4".

This card measures 6x6" and used a play on words...Hoppy Birthday..LOL. What a dork! I used Making Memories tiny alpha found in the Miki Mart!

I was really torn about cutting off the edges, but since I scrap the kids' layouts in the smaller format, I just went with it. The next few layouts were all taken on the same day at the restaurant we ate, Kinders. Yum...BBQ! For this layout I used the Prima packaging from the fabric tree. I also used stickles found in the Miki Mart! I only added ink for the edges and a tiny gem on top of the green button. Oh...the glitter "o" in the flower, that came from the Thickers alpha...LOL!

These two are seriously funny. I love their free spirit, esp Joey! Man, that kid. I used the "frame" from a heart I cut out below. I had used the "frame" to mist a heart, but it didn't work out too well. But I did some misting on a layout!! Only added ink for the edges, ribbons, and a gem.

Here is the heart I cut out from above. I'm so embarrassed about this photo, but I needed it to complete the family...LOL. Dang, I look like a complete dork, esp right next to my handsome fella! Added some ink for the edges (my signature trademark!), ribbons, and the bling. I also used the Prima packaging for the journaling.

And my final page from this kit....St. Patrick's 2009. This is the layout where I used the Maya Mist, also in the Miki Mart! First I wanted the actual heart misted, but it looked wrong for the layout. So I used the heart and misted around it. Then I outlined the heart to have it stand out a bit more. Added Stickles to the scalloped edges (cut out from the owl paper) also used it on the fabric tree. I love that fabric tree. And this is the perfect layout for it!

I hope all of you enjoy this fine April Fool's day. Fooled or Fooler....whichever you are, have fun and be safe :)
Thanks so much for stopping by....Take care!!
