TN Time With Lisa & Lori May Challenge

Hello, hello! Happy Friday to you! I am so glad that we have made it to the weekend. I don't know why but this has seemed like a long week!

It's time for the May Challenge at TN Time With Lisa and Lori! Here's how it works - Lisa will be providing a TN sketch on her blog for us to work with. I will be providing a random challenge here on my blog for you to use in your TN, planner, or bullet journal spread.

You can complete the challenges together or separately - it's your choice. If you complete my random challenge - link up below in this post. If you combine my challenge with Lisa's Sketch Challenge - link up your layout both here on my blog and on Lisa's blog. If you just complete the sketch challenge, then just link up on Lisa's blog. You will have a chance to win a prize from me and a prize from Lisa. You can read all of the rules here.

Here is my challenge for May:
(Challenge open May 10th - June 9th at midnight)

My challenge for May is to include a hidden element on your spread. This can be hidden journaling, extra photos, in a pocket of tucked behind the photo - it's all up to you!

Here is the sketch that Lisa has created for us:

Here is my TN spread based on the sketch and my challenge:

I've skipped around in my current 52 Favorites so I have decided to go back and fill in a few of the missing weeks. This is my spread for Week 5 - back when we were getting Ada the "Disney Doorables" every single time that we went to town. We were down to her needing just a couple to complete the set and she was really wanting to get Hei Hei from Moana before they were all gone. 

For my spread, I have used my May Counterfeit Kit - which you can read about here. That floral fabric tape that goes across the center of my spread has been in my stash for several years. I believe I got it in a RAK. I had put it in my Counterfeit Kit to try and use this month and I am so glad that it worked with my spread! I had just enough for it.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I did quite a bit of stamping using stamps from Close To My Heart and Elle's Studio for this challenge. The hearts are from Close To My Heart - S1903 - This Happened - and the label is from Elle's Studio - The Details- stamp set.

I stamped my title using a mix of Elle's Studio - Title Builder Alphabet Stamp Set and Close To My Hearts - D1729 - Colorblock alpha. This alphabet stamp set is seriously one of my all-time favorites. I don't know why I don't use it more often!

For my hidden element, I created a pocket for my journaling to go into. I need to figure out what all I want to say and will add it to the card. I also have one of the little checklist papers from the Disney Doorables and I think I will see about slipping it into the pocket, as well. I think it would be fun for Ada to look at down the road when she has forgotten all about the Disney Doorables!

Now for my April winner. I used and my winner is:

#1 - Anna!

Congrats, Anna! Email me at with your address and I will get your prize out to you!

Here is May's prize:
