Paper Trail Blog Hop for April... Victory!

Welcome to the Paper Trail Blog Hop for April!

This month we are featuring the Victory Paper Packet.

You may have arrived from Karen's blog, but this is a circular hop, so it doesn't matter where you begin.  ;)

This time I have two layouts to share.

The layout design is from PageMaps from March 2012.

And here's the second layout.

For this layout, I was inspired by the Victory layout shown in this post on Jeanette Lynton's blog, where she discusses the MyStickease and Compliments.

On the backside of each sheet of MyStickease, you can see a different layout completed using the MyStickease with their matching paper packets.

I didn't have the Victory MyStickease, so I re-created the layout, adding my own personal touches.

I love how it turned out.

Here's some close-ups:

And here's what the Victory Paper Packet looks like:

I used the April Stamp of the Month - You Are... on both of my layouts -- available NOW!

Here's what it looks like:

{available only from April 1st - April 30th}


I will be offering the second layout shown (and another layout using a different paper packet) for an upcoming workshop in April.

If you are local and would like to be added to my email list for classes/workshops, let me know.  :)

That's it for me today.

Please continue along the Paper Trial Blog Hop by visiting Lynne's blog.

Happy creating!  :)

Beautiful layouts!! I was wondering where the light blue paper came from in the first one when I realized it was stamped with the SOTM. LOVE it!!
