may scrappy chics!!!

may's main kit is packed full of awesome stuff!!!  every month i feel like a kid at christmas when i get to open my package from melinda.  :)

i started out with two layouts - the first one is about life after 40 for me.  braces, bifocals, zits, gray hair and wrinkles.  i forgot to mention wrinkles in my layout.  

the second layout is based on a photo of my daughter and my parents...  we'd gone out to dinner to celebrate their birthdays, and my hubby's.  the night i was working on my DT stuff, there was a hallmark movie on tv, and one of the commercials used this line:  life is a special occasion...  i had to use that for my layout.

my last project is a wall hanging.  the chipboard element is from daisy bucket designs.  i spray painted the chipboard and then used a quote i found on pinterest.  this is hanging in my scrappy area now.

design note:  i used the negative left from a set of chipboard letters to trace my title.  also, the little "follow your heart" is cut from the title strip of one the patterned papers that came in the kit.

i'm working on more stuff using this month's kit this weekend - birthday cards for the staff at work.  i'll post those after the weekend is over!

thanks for looking - and happy may!  i'm SO glad it's getting warmer!!!
