A day in May

Spring has been early this year - really early.  The spirea bushes that don't normally bloom until now are already finished.  We have very ripe strawberries and peonies popping open every day.

This layout is for two challenges - Artfuldelight's monthly sketch challenge and Two Peas National Scrapbooking Day Make It Your Own challenge.  I also used quite a bit of the May Artfuldelight kit on this page.

I'm so glad I read about the Make It Your Own challenge.  Yesterday when I was pulling together elements for this layout, I had stamped the banner flags with letters only.  That was how I planned to leave them until inspired by the challenge to add some paint and then stamp on a little vine in green ink.  They look so much better.

Embellishments for a page about flowers can be challenging.  Everything that is feminine enough looks too much like a flower.  A few of the stickers from the kit - Echo Park's This and That Graceful  collection - worked out nicely.  I added a stamped message on a Cricut cut label.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other challenges at Two Peas this weekend.  There are prizes up for grabs and lots of inspiration.

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Faith in Nature by Stampin' Up!
