My May Page

Another calendar page I was able to get done for my calendar is my May page.  Looking over the sketches I had collected over the past couple of weeks, I was trying to match them up with challenges at the Yahoo Group Scrappin'-n-Chattin'.  One of the challenges this month is Then and Now.  I started thinking that Tessa's birthday page (May) would be a great option for this challenge.  And the January sketch at My Creative Sketches was perfect.


As I was choosing the papers for this page, I realized the colors I was using follow the inspiration photo at Scrapstuffz "Inspired By" Challenges.


I did notice that I was missing that punch of blue.  I added blue gems inside the pink flowers.



I will also enter this into the current Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs, which is Polka Dots.  I used Polka Dot paper under Tessa's grown up photo.

In addition to entering it into the Then and Now challenge at SnC, I am using it as my 52 Week Challenge entry for this week.

Thanks for looking.  I am really excited about getting more pages done.
