Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I feel like I blinked and my weekend was gone! Don't you just hate it when that happens?! Saturday was a quiet day...I did some crafting, made some strawberry jam, cleaned a little and got to finally see "The Lucky One" at the theatre. Not my favorite movie, save your money and MAYBE see it for $1 from RedBox ;) I think I may be getting too old for those sappy love stories, but I did enjoy to book!!! I hope your weekend was wonderful :)

Thank you to all of the Stack-a-holic entries that we received this month! I am going to go through them today and post the Top 10 pages and cards on Wednesday. Friday I will post May's challenge...yes MAY I can't believe it's here. And tomorrow, will be a fun announcement...trying out a new kind of challenge! You will love it, so check the blog tomorrow for those details. 


I wanted to share a couple more gorgeous scrapbook layouts to show you today. This first one uses the Painted Petals Stack which is at Michaels right now. I love the colors in this stack, that aqua is so hot right now! And this stack has a wonderful watercolor feel to it. It's beautiful! 


I love the flowers and butterflies that we cut out from this stack. And the sewing machine stitching to add to the butterflies, adorable!


This layout uses an oldie but goodie, "Nana's Kids" Stack. This is a stack that will never go out of style in opinion. The animals are so cute and the colors and so fun. 


All of those fun little guys are from the Nana's Kids Box of Chipboard. So cute :)


I love being inspired by gorgeous layouts! Makes me want to stop what I am doing and get out my own books and scrap :) 

I have a couple winners from last week's blog comments! That is the way to get entered into our weekly stack giveaways so keep those comments coming! I love reading all of your feedback. If you are chosen, please email me at erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com and I will get your stacks right out to you!

Congrats to:

What a sweet, sweet story. Foxy knew she's found the right home. My rescue cat did that to me. I found him, cleaned him up, and started a search for a home. He was rude and surly to potential adoptive parents so I told my hubby we'd just have to keep him. He immediately became a gentle, sweet, soul. He just wanted to stay with us.

AND


Thanks for the coupon.


Have a wonderful day!! Be sure to stop by tomorrow and see our big, fun news!
