Hi all! Happy May! If I had posted this yesterday I was going to title this post "Mayday! Mayday!", lol. There is so much going on for me this month, both in real life and in my digiscrapping life, my head is spinning! But in a good way. So, let me tell you what's up:
If you are a scrapper, whether digital, paper, or hybrid, you probably know that this Saturday, May 4th, is (inter)National Scrapbooking Day. So many of the scrapping forums and shops are hosting sales, games, chats, challenges, and general celebratory stuff, starting now and continuing through the weekend. My digi home, The Digichick, is no exception. Among other things, we are playing a game that has us changing our avatars to variations on a chick. Here's mine, a gardening chick sporting a Michigan mitten:
Poor gal is a little blurry here because she's only 100 pixels wide...in the forums she looks just fine, lol! Not related to iNSD but new for this month is my Desktop Challenge:
I love love love making a new desktop background each month. It's like redecorating with the changing seasons, but on a much smaller scale. Join me if you'd like! Also new is the latest installment in the Digichicks Around the World series, a visit to France called Joie de Vivre:
I combined this kit with a template from the iNSD Grab Bag by Cornelia Designs:
...and scrapped this lovely layout of the newest addition to my extended family:
Little Ava is also featured in a layout I did using a new Add-On Bundle that Paper Garden Projects has released to coordinate with her Garden of Life collection I showed you a few posts back:
I was intrigued by a discussion we had about how the papers in the kit were inspired by vintage fabrics and decided to go with that feeling:
At last, I have two exciting things to tell you about now that it's May! First of all, I am tickled pink to be a guest on the Creative Team at ScrapMatters this month! SM is where Val of geniaBeana Scraps has her shop, and I'm so pleased I'm going to get a chance to work with the other designers and scrappers for the next few weeks! Also, Michelle of Ohana Designs, half of the Partners in Crime Designs team that took a break at the beginning of the year, is a Guest Designer at Scrapbook Bytes this month! There are some products already in her shop, but I'll be back in a couple of days to show you a fun new kit I got to play with!
Well, I'm glad to finally get all this out of my system! I hope you'll come back and see what I make of all these new adventures this month!
