TN Time With Lisa & Lori May 2020 Challenge

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend. Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mom's out there today! I got to enjoy some great - much needed - family time with my kiddos this weekend.

Are you ready for the May edition of TN Time With Lisa & Lori? Well, let's get to it! Here's how it works - this is a monthly challenge that starts on the 10th of each month and ends on the 9th of the following month at midnight CST. If you complete my random challenge for the month - link your TN, bullet journal, or planner spread below. If you combine my challenge with Lisa's sketch challenge - link up here and on Lisa's blog  - My Creative Endeavors - and you will have two chances to win a prize. You can find the full list of rules here

Here is May's challenge:
(May 10th to June 9th)

Since Aprils showers bring May flowers - and we are now into the month of May - I want to see some flowers on your spread. This can be on the papers, embellishments, or in the photos.

Here is a look at the sketch Lisa has created for this month:

This is one of my favorite sketches that Lisa has created and it is staying out on my desk for another layout that I have in mind...maybe I can get it done and share it before the end of the challenge!

Here is the layout that I created using the sketch and adding in my challenge to add flowers:

This spread is in my 2018 Favorite Photos of Ada TN. Guys, I seriously need help here! I have so many TN's going all at the same time - Ada's Summer Bucket List from last summer, my 52 Favorites of 2019, my 52 Favorites of 2020, and the list goes on and on! BUT - I truly enjoy working in them - probably because they are just for me and I feel there is no pressure to make them perfect.

For this spread I have used papers from my May Great Stash Bash kit. I had hoped to use up the scraps that I had from this layout here from last week, but I didn't have quite enough of the coral dotted paper for the spread so I had to cut use a new sheet. I was able to use up almost all of the yellow paper between the two layouts, though! 

Since my challenge for this month is to use flowers, and I included a ton of flowers in my May Great Stash Bash Kit, I actually managed to use four on this spread!

I stamped out my title using three of the Title Builder Stamp sets (1, 2, and 4) from Elle's Studio. I love these stamp sets and they are the perfect size for my TN's and my Project Life albums.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

The enamel dots and word/phrase stickers were the only things on this spread that were not in my May Great Stash Bash Kit. 

We have decided to carry over the linky for one more month. I know the county where I live has been very lucky and not seen any positive cases of COVID-19 until this weekend and now we have 2. We are going to give it another month before we draw a name for a prize - so just keep adding your projects to the linky and hopefully, we will draw a winner in June!

Be sure to hop on over to Lisa's Blog to see her great layout using this month's challenges. I would love to see what you create, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!

  1. This color combo is SOOO pretty! I love it! I'm also loving that stamped title!! I don't have those sets but have always wished I did, however, I decided I would be to afraid to stamp on my layout so would not use them much...but I have to say I am loving the stamped title!! Maybe it's time for me to practice, I for sure have enough stamps to do so!! Happy Mother's Day hope it's great!!

  2. You are very fortunate to live in a county were the virus is very widespread. It is very anxiety producing for me whenever I have to do anything out in public. On a brighter note.....this spread is absolutely amazing and one of my favorites of yours Lori of all time. I love that color combination.

  3. Lori: Very pretty TN layout that combines your prompt for the month and Lisa's sketch! The color combo is pretty and I like all your little word phrase strips scattered around the layout!
