May

Monday, May 2, 2011

Hi everyone welcome to May once again, and I am starting to feel the heat here in Southern California!! Gone are the days of lovely clouds and rain, and here come the 90+ degree weather, yuck. The only thing I enjoy of that is I get to see hubby in shorts ;-) haha. Anyway today I am sharing my May layout, for those new to my blog I always make a layout every month dedicated to the month itself. It's something I started doing since last year and I like it. It serves as a cover page for the layouts of that month. In this month's layout I used some cute banners, I actually took them individually did some distressing on them and added lots of different embellishments, stamping, and cute little icons to them. I used a lot of the new K&Company Brenda Walton line, it is so cute, and these layouts that I will be making will be all about travel since I just had my fun daycation in San Diego! Ok so here it is take a look:














I absolutely love the design, the vintage feel it is so great, and that paper is so fab!!! Another thing I wanted to share with you guys is the challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous, they have their monthly challenge which is to take out your stamps make 3 embellishments and a patterned paper, and as part of the DT I submitted my take on it which you can see on their blog and here too! Make sure to stop by the SA blog and show the wondeful ladies some love, they are truly creative. Also make sure to check out Diana's Tulip field layout those pictures are stunning she is such a photographer! Thank You for stopping by today and for all of your wonderful comments have a grand Monday!!

-Love, Frank XOXO
