Happy Monday!
It's time to reveal our
April "Be Our Guest" Sketch Challenge

Here's the sketch:
Your challenge is to create a layout inspired by the sketch.
You are allowed to flip it, turn it, etc as long as we can tell your layout was inspired by the sketch.


 Your layout must be NEW as of  April 4, 2016

• You must include a LINK back to this challenge post when posting your layout on your blog or gallery.

TSR Kit Club subscribers and non-subscribers are encouraged to play along with us.

Although we would love it if you used product from one of our kits, it is not required!

The person chosen, will be awarded a Flavors of the Month Kit and required to 
create (4) layouts using the kit, which will be featured here and on The ScrapRoom website in June.
If selected, you must be willing to complete your projects within our deadline and you must
have an updated blog and a facebook account.

With regret…only US and Canadian residents will be selected because of
unpredictable international shipping time frames.

Meet our
April Guest Designer
"My name is Suzanne and apparently I need to join this century and take some selfies smile emoticon Here's our Christmas card pic that captures my little family - hubby Dave and daughter McKenna. When I'm not teaching the first grade or making memories with this crew - you'll find me in me playing with paper and photos! I love documenting our life's story through, both pocket pages and traditional layouts. I am honored to be apart of The ScrapRoom team this month and create with the April Kit. I hope you are inspired by my projects, as I have been by so many others here!"

We are excited to have you as our guest this month Suzanne and looking forward to 
featuring all of the awesome inspiration you created using the April FOTM Kit!
Check out the lovely layout Suzanne created inspired by the sketch using the
Bo Bunny "Believe" Page Kit
included in the

"Live In the Moment"

Suzanne shared this with us about her layout:
"I created using this month's sketch "as is". I loved using 2 square photos of my daughter and I, taken before a bridal shower. Despite what people say about the "terrible 2s" - I really love this age! I wanted to incorporate that sentiment into the title, along with the "live in the moment" chipboard. The alphas are from the Elle's Studio Letters and Numbers sheet in the April Embellishment Add On Kit, but everything else is from the Bo Bunny "Believe" Page Kit (the cloud paper from the Patterned Paper Add On Kit). I fussy cut several flowers from the patterned papers, in place of the the sketch and layered with more chipboard pieces. I used a distressing tool on several of the layers to add dimension and a bit of white between the vibrant colors. "

Inspired by the sketch and/or Suzanne's beautiful layout?
Why not create a layout and share it with us, we would love to see how this
sketch inspires you.  

The winner of the March "Be Our Guest" Sketch Challenge will be revealed
tomorrow.  Stop by and see who will guest design with us in May!
