Hi there,
Ok I am just having a bit of trouble acknowledging that it is in fact MAY!! Everywhere I look it says the 1st of May today...  My computer, my phone.. just my brain is taking time to catch up!!! So while I am adjusting, I thought I had better put up a couple of the challenges I design for...... yes for MAY!!!

The challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS ON FACEBOOK is in interesting one..

The board.. for inspiration..
and the sketch for inspiration..

  A fabulous Page Maps one..
Well this month I was inspired by the colors in the door in the board and I have created a card, you can create anything for this challenge.. just tell us how you were inspired..

and my card..
I have used older Kaisercraft papers for this card..

And the challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG is one we all had fun creating for.. It may lend itself to male layouts, but I still did a layout with my daughter in it.. and it is..
To use the color grey, the word GREAT and the technique of grunge!!

and some closer views of my layout..

Special moments make great memories..
I had some fun creating the back ground for this, the chipboard pieces are Scrapmatts, the dies and stamps are Kaisercraft and the flowers are Prima. (A bit of warp happening with my title due to the mixed media!!!)

There you go,  two challenges to inspire your scrapping this month! I hope your day has been great!!
 Thanks for coming by, and thanks so much for the lovely comments too..
and... Happy May!
