Hello! I am sharing a layout today inspired by another new-to-me challenge-Kelly's May Mood Board Challenge.
This mood board was right up my alley, and I pulled my inspiration mostly from the bottom right and bottom left photos (go to link above to see board).

I have a double page layout to share today inspired by the May "Be Our Guest" sketch challenge at The ScrapRoom. I decided to use both sides since I had several photos. I am also entering this into Rochelle Spears: May This or That challenge, I used flairs.




There is a border of brown cs around the edges.

four generations

It's time for another Make it Monday No. 60 at The Memory Nest
I had so much fun creating this layout from the great sketch! I did a lot of fussy cutting- the frame and flowers, but the time was well spent. I decided to try something different with the bottom area and I love how all the bits and pieces look! I think that while it is busy, it is still cohesive and doesn't detract from the photo. I absolutely love the end result and this is one of my favorites this year. 
My mom, Kara, Aubree, and myself- Feb. 2015. It's such a blessing to be able to have a photo like this. I hope we can capture another in the near future. <3 font="">


supplies:
cs: Hobby Lobby and Michael's
pp, chipboard and stickers: Simple Stories
twine: Papertrey Ink
sequins: Hazel & Ruby
lace trim: Hobby Lobby

Come on over to the Memory Nest blog to see the wonderful sketch and what the talented ladies on the team created using it.

 I have yet another layout to share using the awesome NSD challenges from The ScrapRoom and Scrap Our Stash. This is the most I have scrapped in months- my shoulder is feeling better after several weeks of PT and it feels great to be creating again. The challenges have also been excellent motivators. 


Here is the third layout I created, this time using sketch #5 from The ScrapRoom and the following from Scrap Our Stash: S- stickers, T- transparency, A- arrow, S- stencil, 
H- hearts. 

I used a stencil and modeling paste to create the background. I love how it turned out!
