I've always wanted to make a layout using a Paper Made Bakery Kit. Even though this kit is designed to make 10+ cards, I thought it would be easy to utilize it for a layout, and it was. The only thing I added besides the usual ink pads for stamping was a piece of 12 x 12" cardstock for my base and my photos. The 6 x 6" Lawn Fawn Petite Paper Pad was perfect. There are 36 sheets of 12 different patterns in one pad so I had a lot of fun colors and patterns to choose from. If I was shopping à la carte, I'd never buy the entire collection nor have 12 different designs to use for a single paged layout. I ended up really liking the use of a petite paper pad for a layout.

April's Fresh Baked Kit is entitled, "A Walk on the Bright Side" and contains many fun elements from Lawn Fawn including their "you've got mail" stamp set, bright side paper pad and natural hemp cord. I've always thought Lawn Fawn stamps were especially cute and I am so excited to work with their products this month. The embellishment pack that is included in the kit has been upgraded and contains more pieces than in past kits. I made 4 projects already and I still have a large pile of embellishments left.

I actually received my kit and my Silhouette Cameo at my hotel in San Diego, where I made my 4 projects, otherwise I couldn't have finished in time for this hop. Thanks Shannon. While in SD, I had the best sushi ever at Sushi on the Rock in La Jolla Village. The head chef, Robert Cassidy, was one of my husband's original volleyball players from 1995, and he created custom dishes just for us like the one pictured below.
