You Are Here!

Well aren't the months just going so quickly?
It is April, already and I am here today to share my first project for the month.

Tania has set our challenge this month.
To create a project...layout, canvas, card - your choice...using the PageMaps sketch, below. The second criteria for the challenge is that your project has to be about your favourite place.
Thanks Tania for a great challenge...I love it!

Here is the sketch...

Here is what I have come up with this month using some of the Simple Stories collection 'You Are Here!'

As you can see I have changed the orientation of my photo compared to the sketch but have tried to keep the other features the same. That is the thing with sketches they are always a good starting point for your projects.

This project is about one of our favourite places, Thailand. We have been there a few times but our experience with these two gorgeous boys, Arnut and Note, would have to be one of our favourites. Living with our Thai friends definitely gave us a look into life in a village in Thailand. It helped us to appreciate that the simple things in life actually do make us the happiest.

As I said before, I was very lucky to receive this gorgeous kit from Jo @Scrapbookit. I have the fun Simple Stories 'You Are Here!' collection not to mention that gorgeous Colour Blast Colour Paste Tangareen Dream that I have used behind my tags. I also love the washi tape that I have used to create my tags.

The 2Crafty chipboard title fits perfectly with the layout and the theme of my layout that true happiness is this.

Have you got your entry in for this challenge? Make sure you do for your chance to be our GDT member for June. Then you too could work with some gorgeous product and see your name and work in lights here on the Scrapbookit Blog. 
To enter your project link it up to the blog using the 'Add Your Link' button in the side bar or email it to Jo so that she can add it to our gallery.

I will be back later in the month to share with you another couple of projects using this collection.
Until then keep scrapping!
