My Kraft It Up Design Team Layout
"It's All About the Chocolate"

 Hi everyone. Can you believe we are in May already!!! Nearly half way through the year. Where has the time gone! Well with the NEW month comes a NEW lot of challenges. This is my DT layout for this months Kraft It Up challenge. This months criteria is to ask either your kids or hubby what Easter means to them. Now, I thought long & hard about this question, not wanting to get "heavy" in a public forum, then I came across these pics of a friend on mines little one, & my question was answered.
"It's All About the Chocolate When You Are Two"

 One of my friends had given me these pics only recently. I am surrounded by both family & friends who don't scrapbook!!!! I just don't get it. How could you have lovely  pics like this & not want to showcase them by scrapbooking them? I just don't get it. I have only one scrapbooking friend, all the rest are just not interested & are happy for me to do it for them!!!! Anyway, I suppose it is my good fortune as I have this never ending supply of photos.

 As you can see I have done lots of layering, distressing, sewing & included loads of textures. I would have to say I am a very "tactile" scrapper. The more textures the better. There was just so much I wanted to include in this layout but just couldn't fit it all on. As you can tell I don't do "minimalist". I so enjoy the "journey" as much as the "destination". I admire people that do, but I can't!!!
Well thanks  for calling by, & I hope you join in with us this month over at   Kraft It Up  & maybe get some of those great Easter snaps onto a layout. Until next time.
Cheers Di  xoxo
