Linda, your camp pages are awesome. Love the blue & cream on the San Agustin page: love how the colours of her period costume are brought in. So cool that you have photos of her at camp in that costume you made. The Star Wars Camporee photos speak for themselves--no need for a bunch of extra embellishments--and I love the photo of the poster. ANOTHER theme costume? Cool. Great job with the Cricut again on the woodworking LO: love the hammer and nails. And I love that you exactly echoed the table colour on the Mad City Money page (and that you have a photo of the background, people at the game, and the WINNER!
AussieMeg you definitely could have earned extra points (other than from #15 where you get 2 points for each page for pic's taken this month) IF you had posed a challenge to get a bonus for scrapping photos the same day as they were taken . Left you love in the gallery.
teacherlisa, I like all the detail in your journaling. And awesome photo!
Linda , I like the plaid background on the 1880's pages. Looks like they are working hard. And I love all the photos on the first aid page. That little first aid kit is the perfect little extra. Awesome detail in all your photos.
gramma I left you love on Flickr. I used to have a bunch of those flap pages: love them for scrapping big events like this. Ran out of them years ago. I sometimes cut and seal a page protector to put an extra 6 x 12" page between the main pages instead, but it is not quite the same.
wow, you guys have been busy! I am fixing albums that are way out of date and/or too full....I added a few embellishments to some older layouts, and redid a couple of ones I just couldn't stand anymore! ha! I needed to combine some pics on pages because the album was SO full!
Sorted more pics and scrapping some of the ones today that remain on my desk...
teacherlisa I enjoyed your journaling for your mom's bday....sounds like a nice day! gramma Love those grad pieces you made! I have another grad next year, so I should start the prepping...appreciate you sharing! linda You are making great progress on your GS album..I never had enough pics for a whole album before my girlies decided they were done. So sad!
**aka Sandi **Alons-y! **Jesus loves you, and I'm trying.
gramma - love the flap page - perfect when there are tons of photos! Your graduation layout looks so festive with the balloons and streamers!
Love your graduation swap goodies - they look like a LOT of work though.
Your oldie but goodie page kit made a super page - what adorable paper pieced ducks!
teacherlisa - love the hand-written journalling and the tag with the heart! What a lovely photo
2marbles - sounds like you are working hard also - check out challenge #63 for some of those layouts you're re-doing.
I'm fortunate that DD19 did Girl Scouts k-12th and is now a lifetime member and that DD12 is still interested in continuing (this is year 7 for her). DD19 ended up with 5 albums (all 8x8) and this is album 4 for DD12 so far.
teacherlisa love your change layout and that you have a home album!
Here are two pages I finished today. It is the first day that is warm enough to actually feel like summer, but here I am catching up on wintery pages! If you are too warm today, just lean in and feel the crisp air from this March afternoon near Calgary:

so I got DD12's Cadette album caught up through the end of April and then realised I had never finished her Junior album...oops. I didn't even get all the photos printed...so I'll be placing that order now.
There is no way I'll be able to keep up with comments this month, and I apologize for that. Luckily many have been part of other threads and I have commented there. All the layouts this month have all been wonderful.
But I do have a few comments:
Linda (sketchy cat) and 2marbles (happy smiles), both of these layouts had me laughing. So great!
craftymom101, hummingbirds and butterflies are "my thing" especially hummingbirds. I received new feeders for the new house yesterday. DH laughs because after all these years, my breath still catches when they fly up. All this to say, I LOVE your cards!!
AussieMeg, Class of 85, You rocked the old school photo layout. Fabulous layering, colors, everything.
grammadee, your sympathy card is beautiful. I'm also going to have to lift your Jenga layout, that heart is amazing.
Linda , that shaped mat for your journaling really adds interest to your Christmas Party page, changing up the basic shape, the colours, the paper pattern. Pretty little Christmassy cluster. Love that you have the photos of the whole construction and her with her gingerbread creation.
linda - love the greens and ginhams on "1880s", and how you colour blocked to the very edge of your page with 1st aid gramma - love the blue and yellow matting on your graduation page - how you alternated the matting to help the eye move through the photos, and the flap is great! "Birds of a feather" is both pretty and fun with the die cut! I adore layouts that have time-line photos like this. teacherlisa - love the stamping, the texture it adds is wonderful.

grammadee - both your hockey layouts are really good because what I like: yes, I CAN feel that Calgary air on "family street hockey" because of the colours and the photos! And I think red/black/white is the perfect colour combo for hockey, I love how you used so many hockey icons in your embellies. 2marbles - I love the woodgrain background, the photos contrasts beautifully with it and I knew the pic must be about camp or something even before I read the journling. And old chatterbox! Love how you made it feel more current with the white background and layers. And I love how you got 4 pictures on your other 2 layouts.
I started this 2-pager yesterday but ran out of gas. Had the pieces laid out, but it looked blah... This morning I decided to add the large piece of dark blue behind the LO. That woke it up a bit. It is still not one of my favorite pages, but it is DONE!
I am not sure if I am done hockey for the year or not. I wanted to put together two pages of another one of my dgs's playing, but my photos are not good, and I am not even sure now (a few months later) which of those kids is actually MY kid! I have a good close up of him after a game, but think maybe I will let that LO go from my To Do list and put the hockey stuff away until fall...
This morning I had fun switching gears. I had these fun photos of a couple of cousins having a blast with Lego and a bunch of old toys in my living room over Easter. And I am a collector of all scrappy things that are little boy themed. A few days ago I had written out the list of cuts from the latest Scrap Room Freaky Fast Friday Formula, and they worked well with this page. I have the pp & cs cut for the facing page, but need to print a photo to go on it, so it will have to wait.
Points: three pages created and shared (6). #2 Be a sport (2), #15 January photos (2), April photos (2), #16 circle dies (1), #17 PL card (1), #20 pen & ink (3), #23 three+ papers (6), #28 date stamp (2), #30 stars and arrows (2), #33 handwriting (2), #37 double & more photos (5), #50 four pic's (1), #60 square pages (3), rectangular photos (3), circles (1). Total: 42
grammadee - that dark blue really ties together the hockey layout! I think you're good letting those last photos go - you've gotten so many good hockey pics and done lovely layouts that skipping some not-so-great photos is no big deal.
I LOVE that toys layout - I might just have to steal it - pretty sure I have some old photos (somewhere) that'll be perfect!
