Hello Peas!!! I am so very excited to be here today to share a layout inspired by the amazing April moodboard. This moodboard makes me seriously happy. The aquas, pinks and yellows are right up my alley. Plus the clouds were such an instrumental part of my inspiration.

My layout is inspired by a milestone, my youngest daughter learning to walk. It was a moment that the whole family was anxiously anticipating, everyone was over the moon happy when she finally walked. I was a bit sad because my baby was growing. I had a lot of journaling to include on this layout, this is why I choose a 12x12 format. A quick tip, trim your white cardstock to 8 inches in width and it still runs through a typewriter. To make it 12x12 I added a strip of pattern paper. I prefer to journal with my typewriter so this was ideal for me.

I love love love using clouds on my layouts. I wanted to mimic the 3 dimensional clouds on the moodboard so using a cloud punch, I cut out 3 clouds, layered on my cardstock and stitched it on my cardstock. Then I separated the layers to create dimension. To me it made more sense having clouds at the top of the page, that is why the picture is set lower on the layout.

I am sure you will be inspired by this moodboard, even if it's just one item, take it and let it guide your project. I am sure you will love the end result! Happy scrapping Peas!!!
