Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday to you! I hope your week is off to a good start!
Today I am sharing the layout that I created using the May portion of the Shots of Life Kit from The ScrapRoom. I just checked and it looks like there are still a few of the May/June Shots of Life kits still available. Here's a look at the kit:
Bold collection, a couple of cards from PhotoPlay's Crafting With My Gnomies, and bits and pieces of the Maggie Holmes Garden Party paper to document Week 33 of 2018. That's right, we are going back a few years for this one!

Hello, everyone! Good Sunday morning to you! I hope that you are having a good weekend. It's been so rainy and cool around here lately and I'm ready for the rain and cool temperatures to give way to sunshine and warm temperatures! We haven't even had a chance to get our pool up and going yet and we were already swimming in it this time last year. I'm sure it will warm up soon...I just need to be patient!
Today I am sharing the layout that I created for this week's challenge at Lasting Memories. This week we have a beautiful color combo, courtesy of DT member Maureen:

Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. It looks like it's going to be another rainy weekend around here and I've gotta say, I'm getting tired of it raining every weekend!
I can't believe that it is already the middle of the month - I swear it seems like it just started - but that means that the mid-month sketch has been posted at Sketch N Scrap. Sketch Artist Stacy has created a fun sketch for us to use:
This is what I came up with:

Hello, everyone! Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was filled with lots of wonderful family time with the kids, a little yard work, and lots of rest and relaxation yesterday for Mother's Day.
It is time for the May - TN Time With Lisa & Lori challenge. If you are new here - this is a just-for-fun 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 complete just Lisa's sketch challenge, link up over on her blog - My Creative Endeavors. If you combine both challenges - be sure to link up on both Lisa blog and here on my blog. Now, on to the challenge.
Here is my May challenge:
For May I am challenging you to use the color purple on your spread and to add at least one flower to your spread.
Here is the fabulous sketch that Lisa has created for us to use this month:

Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you all! I hope you are having a good weekend. We had all the kids over last night for a Mother's Day BBQ since Matthew has to work Sunday and we had such a good time. I always enjoy when we all can be together.
Today I am sharing the layout that I created for Sketch N Scrap's Birthday Challenge #4 over in the Monthly Challenges Facebook group. If you haven't joined in the fun - then what are you waiting for?! Four challenges have already been posted and we have four more to go.
I chose the sketch and challenge for today and it is to use the following sketch (#101) and add a least one tag:

Hello, everyone! I hope that you are having a good week.
Sketch N Scrap has the first card sketch of the month posted over on the blog today. Sketch Artist Lisa is getting us started with a fun sketch that is perfect for using up some scraps:
I really can't believe that I was able to mix the watercolors good enough to get that good of a match to the blues in the papers! I added foam tape to the tag and scattered a few black gems around my card.

Hello again! I am back with my second post of the day. If you are looking for my kit for Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash, please scroll on down.
Since today is National Scrapbooking Day, Sketch N Scrap has an exclusive sketch for us to use! That's right - we have 2 new sketches posted today! Here is a look at the fun sketch that Sketch Artist Lisa has created for us:
Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday, Happy May 1st, and Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Wow! What a way to start off the weekend - and - first day of the month! It's time for the May edition of Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash!
If you don't know what the Great Stash Bash is - it is a challenge that my good friend Lisa and I do every month. We pull items from our stash based on a "recipe" (which you will see below) in an effort to get our scrappy stash used up!
As for my April kit - I had included all Close To My Heart products in an effort to get some of them used up. I've recently added a few of their collections to my stash and wanted to use some of my older stuff up. I did manage to make a couple of layouts from my kit. I used 3 full sheets of paper and a few of the stickers that I had included, but I used more of the scraps instead of cutting into a full sheet of paper...at least my scraps are going down, but at this rate there is no way I'll ever put a dent into my paper stash! And - spoiler alert - I will likely be using a lot of scraps in May, as well! We won't even talk about me not using a single brad or eyelet last month...we will see if I can do better in May!
Here's the May graphic:
