May was a super crazy month. I went to a crop May 3rd, and that day I got super sick (a day after my daughter got it). I had a fever for 4 days, and for the next 10 days, someone in my house was sick. It was tough.
Then it was Charlotte's 5th birthday on the 16th. And we had TWO parties...one for friends and one for family (more to come on that!).
THEN, I had a super big show as a vendor for My Scraps & More at a small trade show event. It was a LOT of planning and set up, but VERY awesome exposure for the store....I was even interviewed for a news segment!
So I am going to try and play catch up a bit this month. And let me start by sharing my layouts with the May kit, "High Five", from Scrapbook Circle. The May kit is still available in the store HERE.
So here are my pages and a bit about them:
I am so tired of listening to kids CD's in the car, so I have been playing the radio a lot. The kids LOVE Hey Brother by Avicii because they say "Hey brother" and "hey sister" to each other.
I used a quote from the song as a subtitle and wrote my journaling around the edge. Behind my photos, I used a sheet of paper from Heidi Swapp (Rainbow Rounds) and cut them to make frames.
I scattered some transparencies, sequins, and brads around the page, along with a few paint splatters.
Next I did this page for a challenge prompt on the SBC page: use hearts in your design.
I started by simply cutting out hearts free hand from different patterned papers and them arranging them on the page. Then I stitched over each one with a horizontal stitch.
This next page is based on a sketch from the My Scraps & More Sketch blog, using a grid design.
On the squares where there were no photos, I layered some paper and embellishments. There were so many extras in this kit like stickers, transparencies, die cuts, metal clips, stamps, and more! I use them all! :)
When I saw the sticker that said "Joy", I knew exactly what my title was going to be!
Here I did some stitching over the chevron stamp, and then added some small brads from my stash for the jouraling sticker.
Lastly, I played around with my Silhouette for this one, and I love how it came out. Not the best photo of me, but it was the only one I had on my actual birthday, so I decided to use it!
I started by printing the numbers through the Silhouette software and set it so that only the 3 and 8 would cut out while the rest of the numbers were just printed. Then I backed the 3 and 8 with paper.
I'll be back with more....hopefully a lot more, for June!
Stay scrappy my friends!
