Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series - April 2016!

I am thrilled to be joining some of my PS Design Teammates on the PS Planner Series Team!  I've had planners but not like what is now trending nor have I tried combining stamping with planners until now.  I'm using the Paper Sweeties Digital Planner Calendar for my planner. 

Here is my digital planner:

I had a blast making up my April planner.  I used the color combo on the PS pre-printed planner sheet. I also decided to go with the "April Showers, Brings May Flowers" theme...which I will continue next month for May (spoiler alert). I used the boots and umbrella and rain drops(somewhere I've lost a raindrop) from the Showering You With Love Stamp set and Sweet Cuts.  I colored them with Copics.  I used the banner die also from Paper Sweeties and cut banners from washi tape.

This month's planner stamps are "appointments" and I just so happened to have my annual physical set later this month, which means tests had to be done beforehand.  So, I used the stethoscope stamp (part of this month's set) not only for my doc appt, but also for my mammogram (pink stethoscope) and bloodwork (red stethoscope).  

The heart with cross in it is also part of this month's set and I decided to use it as a little dedication to my dad, who was a minister.  This past Monday, Aprill 11th, marked the one year anniversary of his death, so it's been kind of a tough week for me and my family.

Today, however, is a day we will celebrate for it is my youngest son, Ben's 22nd birthday!  We will be spending the afternoon and evening with him.  He loves to Frolf (frisbee golf) so that's what he has chosen to do today, along with a nice dinner out and a little shopping.  

I also used the washing machine and dog stamp from this month's set.  That washing machine is just too cute!  

As you see, it's spring cleaning time at the Salkeld's! LOTS needed in this area since half of the past year I spent helping my mom after my dad's passing and her hip replacement surgery.  Now it's time to get our place cleaned up before the nasty heat and humidity comes with the summer in North Carolina. 

So that's my first attempt at incorporating stamps/dies and planners.  My only problem is once I plan out a month, Murphy's Law comes knocking at our door and rips it to shreds!  LOL  

Now check out the Paper Sweeties Planner Team projects
