Messy... But No Cuts!

I started April with 2 layouts - one traditional and one hybrid.  This is my first time to do a sports theme, with my sister being a Judo athlete. 

I used Memory Mixer in making the digital part, and printed it using Canon MP700.  I added some dimension to the main title using Ranger Inkssentials and Provo Craft Art Accentz.  I used BasigGrey for the Background.  I printed the "newsletter" portion on the upper right corner and write-ups from the internet and made them into inserts.  For the flap, I used Flip Flop Fasteners by Destination Scrapbook Designs.  The words around the page are stickers by 7 Gypsies, while the number stickers are by Doodlebug Design.  The black cardstock and printed orange paper are from my scrap pile.

The other layout is my April page for my 2008 Calendar.  Nothing really special on this one.  You can see it by clicking here.

My planet is, again, in chaos!  It's so messy, I don't want to be in it.  There are things on the floor and I can't even see my desk because it's covered with stuff.  I wasn't in the mood to do any cleaning today, so I guess my craft room will be that way until, I guess, tomorrow.

So to get away, I printed me some stained glass patterns and went down the basement.  I chose three sun catcher patterns, but I decided to work on just one today.  There are 20 pieces in this pattern, but a lot of really small ones.  I'm a little worried on when I put these together, if the very small pieces will show.  But hey, not cuts!  Woot!  We'll see tomorrow when I start grinding.... gulp!

Time for me to watch TV.  American Idol is on, and I'm looking forward to this season's first  episode of Hell's Kitchen.  That means I'll be doing some cross-stitching too!
