Guessing Game #6: Playing with Pocket Life with April

Happy Friday everyone!

April here to share my week 34 using the September Pocket Life and Embellie Kits!

I loved the color scheme of this month's kit.  I think it's safe to say that the 6x6 paper pad in the Pocket Life kit plus the stickers from the Embellie kit are from (dare I say?) one of my favorite lines EVER.  Can you guess which line it is?  If so, leave a comment for a chance to win a $5 GC to the CTK shop!


I used a lot of my own alphas from my stash this month.  The pink block alphas ("19-25" and "Mon") are the alphas that came in the Pocket Life kit.  Every other alpha is from my stash.



The Embellie kit is amazing this month!  I love the vellum pockets that are included!  I used a couple of them to hold my week in review journaling card.  I like using stickers to make simple filler cards more fun... and how CUTE is that typewriter! :)


The chalkboard stickers in the Embellie kit are super cool!  (But FYI - I did have to go out and buy a white pen to write on them!)  And how awesome is this Star and Bee wood veneer frame?!  It fits in a 3x4 pocket perfectly! :)


I included some memorabilia this week - a coaster from a restaurant we ate lunch at and a starbucks sleeve from a cup of coffee my friend bought me.  I like adding random memorabilia to my pocket life spreads.


And before I forget, I had a complete brain fart last month and didn't post sketches for you guys!  I didn't even realize that until WEEKS later!  Oops, sorry!  To make up for that, I added a second set of sketches based off of my August spread.



Thanks for stopping by and don't forget, leave a comment for a chance to win a $5 GC!  You have until the 11th! :)
