I have another layout to share from the April Scrapbooking From the Inside Out kit entitled "Contentment".  I love this kit and it's colors and patterns!  I was inspired by a quilt that I found on Pinterest here in creating this layout.

I wanted a homemade, stitched look to  symbolize family closeness.  The patterns in the papers are rich and work so well together.  I love the textures and contrast they provide.  Here are some shots of my layout. 
 This little beauty of a chipboard word was perfect to add to my title!  I colored it with metallic green Gelato from Faber-Castell. 
 Here's my version of the quilted paper element.  I cut 4 hexagon shapes from different papers and then cut them into triangles to mix and match them.  Some of the papers are double sided so I had more choices too! Once I glued them down lightly, I used my sewing machine to stitch them onto my paper.
 I used Smooch spray and dripped it onto my paper. I sprayed some on a transparency (or packaging) and added a bit of water to make them drippier... then I turned it upright and allowed it to drip where I wanted them.  
 The paper doily from the My Mind's Eye paper was just too awesome not to cut out and use!  I also used the tag in the upper corner.  My journaling tells of an imperfect family but one that sticks together and loves each other!
 Here's my final page!  I really love how it turned out... If you need inspiration, check out the Scrapbooking From the Inside Out site and Pinterest to get ideas that might reflect on your pages!
