An Inspiration ...

Here for the My Sketch World Blog Hop? Scroll down! You don't want to miss it!
Hello April! Did you get fooled yesterday? Did you fool anyone? Was there towels stuck in shoes, lightbulbs loosened, or cheese slices left in the wrapper on sandwiches? Umm yeah me neither ....
I want to share the first of many projects (seven layouts - one a double, two cards, and two altered projects) with you today that I made with the Apron Strings Larger than a Breadbox kit. This has to be one of my favorite kits that Lori put together at Apron Strings. In the kit is the Lily Bee Buttercup collection - give me any Lily Bee and I would be happy - and the Bazzill Vintage Market collection which was new to me but I think I have fallen in like with these papers!
This layout was made from a sketch from Sketch Inspiration. Apron Strings is sponsoring the sketch this week with a terrific prize and asked the Apron Strings designers to make some examples.
Here is the sketch -
And here is my layout made with the Apron Strings Larger than a Breadbox kit. Everything except the sticker letters spelling "Girls" was in the kit. The gorgeous eyelet rosette in the upper right corner started out a pristine white. I just couldn't leave it alone! I sprayed it with an October Afternoon Sprinkler in Strawberry Creme. After taking the hairdryer to it to dry it ( I was quite liberal with the spray!) it was the perfect shade of pink for my layout.
