Happy Monday everyone! How was your Easter? Hopefully not too many tummy aches are going around today, and hopefully you are all having the itch to scrap all of those photos that you must have taken over the weekend. (You’re all scrappers, right? You know you can’t go through a holiday weekend without taking 6,543,334 photos). ;)

Well things just got that much more exciting as it’s time to introduce our co-op buddy of the month, along with the featured designer templates of the month. This month we are teaming up with our good friends at Doodlebug Designs to bring you a month filled with colorful inspiration. The featured templates of the month are Chestnut Drive, Celebrate and Tiny Floral. (Don’t forget, the featured templates are 10% off in the Kiwi Lane Shop all month long!)

So let’s get this April party started with this awesome sketch by Kiwi Crew member Jenn Nicholes.



Isn’t this about the most cheerful thing ever? Look at these closeup shots! Ack! It just makes me so darn happy!
