And hello May! I hope you have remembered to turn your calender's over to a new month! And with a new month come the new monthly challenges! I have two I would like to share with you today!

The challenge over at ARCHI-SCRAPS is a fabulous one and it is to have some PAPER PLEATING on your creation somewhere...  You can see the Design Team inspiration and link up HERE!!! You can combine this challenge with others...

and I have created a card with paper pleating on it...

All the chipboard is from Scrapmatts..

And the challenge for May for KRAFT+ is one where you will have to think out of the box!!!

Yes.... your photos must NOT be Square or Rectangle...And on a base of Kraft.. The Design team have amazing inspiration for you to get you started...  CHECK THEM OUT AND LINK UP HERE!!!

And my example...

some closer views..

I used a hexagon die to cut out my photo!! Mist and stenciling on the back ground...

I cut various sized hexagons and embellished them with flowers, chipboard die cuts etc..


This was such a fun challenge, I hope you will put this one on your list for May!!

Thank you for coming by today, I am sure we all have lots to do each day! Thank you too for the lovely comments you leave me ... until next time......
