April Crate Color Challenge

Crate has become one of my favorite scrapbooking companies.  It all started with the Restoration Collection, which is one of my favorite and most used collections of all time.  Since then, I have also fallen in love with the Portrait Collection, Farmhouse Collection, Paper Heart Collection, and the Storyteller Collection.
The February and the March Studio Calico kits contained lots of Crate goodness.  I also bought the entire Paper Heart Collection from my local scrapbook store.  So when I saw the April Crate Color Challenge on the Crate blog, I had plenty of product to play with.
Here are the colors:
I created a layout with a recent photo of my cat Elliott.  It is hard to get a great photo of a cat, but I love how this one turned out.  I call Elliott the "BIG E" and I used both of his names on the layout in different fonts.  The three fonts were all cut with the Silhouette.

Have a great week everyone!
