I started out making this card for a Studio Calico challenge: to be inspired by triangles. I used the exclusive hexagon stamp in the May kit to stamp the triangle pattern on the background, then I paper pieced the flower on top. A cute little any-occasion card ready to go!

I created this layout for a Studio Calico challenge, to use letter stamps. I've actually become obsessed with using letter stamps lately! These particular letters I happened to have gotten on clearance at Michaels yesterday for only $2.99!!
I also used sketch #207 from Creative Scrappers to make this layout, and I used Studio Calico's Boardwalk kit.
This is the first layout I did with the May Studio Calico kit, and the first layout of my adorable nephew Max! I made this for the Studio Calico challenge to use 5 photos.. and I used this sketch from the Delightful Inspiration blog. (side note: Liam took these pictures himself last year at 3 years old!)

It's a bird? It's a plane? No, it's SUPER LIAM!
in his daddy's socks!
The last challenge for the BOAF crop is to pick something we celebrate in our scrapbooks that isn't already a challenge. In our home, with two small boys, we celebrate the silly-and if it's SUPER silly, even better! I used a sketch from DCWV and the Songbird Stack to create this layout.
This layout is for the Simple Things challenge at Birds of a Feather. I also incorporated a challenge from 2peas: make it yours (misting chipboard), and Big Picture Classes (challenge was to use phone pictures which I don't have a camera phone so they said candid shots are good too). It seems like such a simple thing that two brothers would play with each other. But with Collin's medical issues, Liam doesn't interact with him too much. So when I do manage to see them together, it's a simple thing that makes my heart happy.
Another challenge for the BOAF crop is to do a layout or card about the great outdoors. I found this Mary Engelbreit sticker in my stash with the following quote: "A friend is the first one to come in when the whole world has gone out". I loved it and with the outdoor scene I wanted to incorporate it into a friendship card. I used a sketch from CardPatterns and scraps from my May kit to create this card.
This layout is for another challenge at Birds of a Feather - it's a color challenge to use the color purple. This paper by My Mind's Eye is the only purple I could find.. add a few embellishments and this sketch from Paper Bakery Kits, and here ya go!
Here is another layout I created from the Birds of a Feather May kit. I started out with the sketch from Scrapbook Steals online crop, and incorporated the "Celebration of Friends" challenge. I wanted to mirror the doodling in the lower corner so I found a doodled flower stamp for the top and then took watercolors and painted around the image.
This weekend Birds of a Feather is having a crop to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. There are lots of fun challenges with the theme of "Celebration of....". Since I am the guest designer for May, I came up with this challenge... Celebration of Life.. and created the layout below.
