Happy May! :)
I love May! Temps are a bit warmer as summer is right around the corner.. I love seeing the flowers and hearing the birds.. and I can't forget Mother's Day! Love May! But it's also a month that I'm flat broke because I'm saving money for my son's birthday in June lol. My sister and I are having a big yard sale in a couple weeks, though, so that should help out quite a bit. :)
Anyhoo.. I've been making a bunch of scrap stuff that I'll share over the next several days. I'm really happy and honestly surprised with how much I did, usually I only do one or two projects a week. But this past week, I was a crazy scrappin lady :) It all started when I got the May Artful Delight kit in the mail! It's so full of bright and colorful summer goodies, I couldn't help myself! lol Just look for yourself! :)
Isn't it gorgeous!?!? It's a paper lover's heaven! It includes the entire Echo Park "Summer Days" collection as well as sheets from Fancy Pants "Beach Babe" and Bo Bunny "Sun Kissed". Plus so many cute embellies! I LOVE this kit.. Don't you!? You can purchase yours here, or even enroll in a 3 or 6 month subscription! :)
There are a couple ways you can win this kit, too! Woot! One way is participating in Leeanne's sketch-a-day challenges going on right now at Artful Delight. See here for details. Another way, I'll share with you at the end of this post. :)
You can also win an A.D. June kit by participating in Artful Delight's monthly sketch challenge. All you have to do is follow the sketch, link it up here, and if you win, you'll receive next month's kit! Awesome, huh? :) Here is this month's sketch..
Lots of possibilities with this one! Here is what I created using May's kit...
Everything used in this layout is from the kit (except for the Thickers title) :)
This is my sister Jessica with her son, my nephew, Drake. We went to Kennywood amusement park when we visited my other sister, Jodi, in Pittsburgh, PA last summer. Loved it!!
I hope you'll join the challenges at Artful Delight for chances to win May and June kits. Lots of opportunities to win :) these kits are jam packed with everything you need for several layouts, cards and other projects.
As promised, here's yet another way to win the A.D. May kit!! Can ya believe it? lol Artful Delight is our sponsor at The Paper Variety this week! Woohoo! :)
Just create a paper project using mists, paints or inks.. link it up.. and you could win the A.D. May kit! See here for all the details. We hope you'll join us at TPV, too! :)
