Time Flies!

Wow, where is this month going? Going, going, almost gone! Next month is the last month of school!! We had a great long weekend. We got into the pool on Thursday, bounced with friends on Friday, hung around the house on Saturday and enjoyed Easter festivities on Sunday! Monday was back to the grind and we all moved veeeeeery slooooowly. But before moving on, I just wanted to share a few Easter pictures. We bought our favorite paint roller egg kits:
We decided to paint raw eggs because I am the only one that likes them hard boiled and I just can't eat THAT many hardboiled eggs! Of course three broke, so maybe I should just go back to hardboiling and eating as many as I can--sigh. Still, they had fun:

Yesterday, I got some awesome news :) 
The announcement is HERE. I am so excited :)
And I haven't shared my other Elle's Studio April projects--seriously, where has this month gone? Anyway, here is a layout I did with a ton of tags and NO patterned paper. You really don't need it when you use a whole bunch of Elle's super cute tags:
I used almost an entire set of the This Week Note Tags. I stitched on a few and stamped Sweet Memories from an Elle's Studio stamp (no longer available) set on another. I also used one of the Make a List Journaling tags to house both the journaling and the title:
and there is one more tag from the Fun Circle Tags collection hidden behind a Maya Road zipper:
My last two projects are a couple of birthday cards using Echo Park Sweet Summertime line with a Birthday Circle Tag and a couple of the Birthday Handmade Layers Pennants in this one:
 and a Large Birthday Circle Journaling tag and the candles are stamped from this Elle's Studio set.
If you like those little candles run over and grab that set for $1.80 before they are all gone!
And last but not least, I told you about the 2 kits for Scrapbook Circle this month, right? There is a gorgeous May kit AND a special and equally beautiful Anniversary kit. I've had to stop myself from creating like crazy with these kits--they are SO awesome! Seriously the best kits EVER. How about a little sneak peek? Here is a couple of peeks from the May kit called Grandma's Attic:

and a couple from the Anniversary kit:

Seriously!! Can you believe all that scrappy goodness? I am not exaggerating....my favorite KITS EVER. So be sure to sign up for the Scrapbook Circle newsletter so you get all the information about this fun anniversary month!
And with that, it is time to put my monkeys to bed! Have a great night!
