Today I'd like to share a layout I created for the May scrap challenge at Scrap Our Stash.   It's book inspired and you must use flowers.  Here is my take

and here is the book cover

I totally fell in love with this book cover the second I seen it.  The first thing that inspired me was the heart and then the colors.  From that very moment my mind started racing with ideas and I knew the perfect picture to work with.  And as for adding flowers... who doesn't have enough of them?

I have been wanting to scrap this photo for some time now.  It is one of my favorites and I really love how my layout turned out.  Here are a few close ups for better details.

Such yummy papers, wouldn't you agree?  And my photo fits in so perfectly!

That's it from me today.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again.  As always, happy scrapping and have a great day!

All The Possibilities

Happy May friends and welcome!

Our new challenge is up at Challenge YOUrself!  Yes, we're a few days early because for this month we are gearing up with Scrap It With A Song!  That means double the fun in one layout!  We've got a mood board for inspiration and a song for you to choose.

As for the mood board, choose anything about it that inspires you most.  Whether it be the colors, a certain element, the words or one particular photo.  Also, don't forget to include YOU in the photo!  And for the songs to pick from here are your choices... a pop song by American Authors "Best Day Of My Life" ~or~ a rock song by Kensington "So Am I". The choice is yours!  Just click on the title for the song lyrics.

Here is my take.

What inspired me most about the inspiration board was the sun and the shining rays.  So that made me get out a stencil and my molding paste to create my sun rays.  After drying I painted it yellow to make it pop and to pull all my colors together.

As for the song, I chose "Best Day Of My Life"  I feel any day spent with my three grandchildren is the best day of my life.  Besides the song being beautiful, the lyrics "all the possibilities" really hit me because with little ones all things are possible and I hope all their dreams come true!

Here are a few close ups for better detail.

One tip I'd like to share.  As a scrapper, who doesn't have an overwhelming amount of paper strips??  Well my design is the perfect way to use some of them up!  So easy peasy and I love how it turned out!  What do you think?

That's it for today.  I do hope I have inspired you in some way to join in with Challenge YOUrself and with Scrap It With A Song this month.  Check us out for full challange rules and for tons of inspiration as well.  And be sure to link up by the end of the month with each of us to double your chances in winning some fun goodies!!

Thanks so much for visiting.  Happy scrapping to you!  I really look forward to seeing some cool creations.
