Scrap Whispers Challenge #26

Your challenge this week at Scrap Whispers is to create a layout entirely from black and white - we're talking black and white photos; black and white embellishments; black and white lettering; black and white paper; black and white ribbon; black and white everything.... apart from one item!!
We want you to create a completely black and white layout but to include just one item with some color. It could be one flower, one piece of ribbon, one button, one letter - the choice is yours!

Here's my take on the challenge using some of the super cool paper from Rusty Pickle:

I hope you will stop over and participate in this really fun challenge this week. Stay tuned----next week we are planning something extra special for National Scrapbooking Day. I can't wait!!!!

April 12 of 12

I have been a bad, bad blogger lately!! For some reason my life has become super busy. I need to try to find my "me" time again.

Yesterday was the 12th of the month---time for more pictures!!! Since it was Easter AND my son's birthday, I had no problem getting enough photos. Actually, it was hard to pick just 12!

Here are my 12 photos for the 12 of 12:
