April TN Time with Lisa & Lori!

TGIF!  I know with things not so "normal" for many of us you may find yourself with more time then usual on your hands.  If that is the case then I hope you will join our challenge this month! Today we are launching another sketch and another fun challenge!  So let's get this party started!

HERE IS HOW OUR CHALLENGE WORKS: This is a monthly challenge that launches on the 10th of each month  You will have until the 9th at midnight CST to link up your entries. If you complete my sketch challenge link your TN, bullet journal or planner spread below. If you combined my challenge with Lori's challenge link up your spread here on my blog AND on Lori's Blog (My Happy Life).  You will then have a chance to win my prize as well as Lori's prize!  That's a chance to win TWO times with ONE layout! WOW!
Now for my challenge!! Here is this month's sketch:

Now for Lori's fun challenge:
Easy peasy, just use your FAVORITE  BOY or GIRL color combo and your FAVORITE embellishment on your spread! 
 Here is my TN spread using BOTH the sketch and Lori's challenge:
 Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: Simple Stories Hey Crafty Girl & The Reset Girl & Pebbles My Bright Life & Along theWay; stickers: Simple Stories Hey Crafty Girl; puffy stickers (hearts): Elle's Studio; tags: The Reset Girl & Pebbles; library pocket: unknown source; fiber: unknown source; enamel heart: Simple Stories Hey Crafty Girl
Here are a few close ups:
My favorite embellishment really hasn't changed...I still LOVE stickers!!  So for my favorite embellishment I went with stickers!  I love using stickers to make my title, especially when there are cute ones like this "Memories Made Beautiful" sticker!  In a small TN it's hard to use letter stickers, especially when you like longer titles like I do!  I wanted this title to be Quarantine crafting but I just knew that title was way to big for the space I had available! I will add that to the tag when I do my journaling! 

 This is the weekend before the stay safe, stay home order went into effect.  My niece and I were enjoying a fun crafty weekend making cards...later that night we went to Hobby Lobby to shop!  Who knew it would be our last trip in a LONG while!

My favorite girl color combo right now is pink, green and yellow/gold!  Not sure why but I have used it a lot lately and I think I will be doing so for some time!  Now it's your turn to give this sketch/challenge a whirl!

  1. This spread is so cute, Lisa! I really like your color combo - for me it was hard to pick one - I like so many - and you can never go wrong with stickers! I am so glad that you and your niece were able to get some crafty time - and some crafty shopping in - before the stay at home order!

  2. Lisa: wonderful layout to correspond with the sketch you created for traveler notebooks! Glad you and Lori are still doing this! Just wished I had time but with DT commitments and teaching 2/3 of the day (and now online) I haven't been able to get back to any journals or TNs I started last year. (ugh!) The mint green with pink and marigold yellow is a terrific trio! So glad you and your niece were able to have the time to craft together before the SAH orders!

    1. It is definitely a challenging time Becca! I know you will be back to it soon and I can't wait to see what you create! Stay safe and healthy and God bless you!
