Final May LO requirements + one

Another month is coming to an end, and in my little patch of earth it's coming to a BEAUTIFUL end. Memorial Day weekend is upon us, thus the unofficial start of Summer. Which also means it's Rose Festival time again here in our part of Oregon. This weekends forcast is lookin' good! Nuttin' but sunshine, Baby! Oh Yeah! I'm excited. I'm trying to make plans for the whole family to be able to go to the beach together one day this weekend, but that's proving harder than I thought it would. But I have Hope. If not the beach, we'll all get together for a Bar-B-Q out here.

So, I've finished my required LO's for the month of May for and also completed one extra.

First, I have "Natural Beauty". Steph had her older sister take her senior pics for her and they turned out SO nice. I used one of them for this LO: Everything I used in this LO is from 'Blue And Blue' by Graziela Mendes. And the template is from the Template Thursday Challenge for May 7-13. Of course, you can find it all at

My next LO is of our 2nd son, Christopher. Skateboarding is his life and he HATES to get his picture taken, so this one was hard to put together because of my lack of pictures of him. In fact the larger photo was taken by my niece, Tisha. She and Chris are more than cousins, they are really good friends. Here's my LO for Chris:

I used bits and pieces from several different kits, but the majority of it was done with 'September Days' by Michelle Batton, including the alpha. The template used is from Thursday Template Challenge May 14-20. The screws are from Sweet Blossoms Designs kit 'Boys Club'. The chicken wire is also from a SBD kit 'It's A Boys World'. The rubberband and Tag are from SJTowers kit 'Sk8 or Die'. And the stamped Alpha is from Kim Christiansen's kit 'Phresh'.

This last one was done for another Challenge. This months "Out of the Box" challenge at SUN was to only use 1 paper and 7 embellishments to complete a LO. I chose to do mine on my niece, Jenna. My younger sisters little girl. I took this photo when they were here for Mother's day a couple weeks ago. She's gotten so big and so cute. :) I can't believe how quickly all the kids are growing up. It's makes me sad sometimes, ya know? Oh! Anyway... here's Jenna:

I mainly used 'Almost Like Love' by Amanda Dykan. Some embellishments recolored. The alpha is from 'Color Theory in Blue' by Mish Bowley, also recolored. And the glitter frame is from 'Easter Blossom' by Mimi's DigiScraps & Polka Dot Plum, also recolored :) You can find all but 'Almost Like Love' at SUN. I don't know where Amanda Dykan sells anymore, she's no longer at SUN.

So, there's what I've been up to this month. I hope you like what you see! Enjoy your long weekend and don't forget to use your camera to capture those moments that you don't want to ever forget. Have a blast, but be safe! I want to see you back next week! Until then...c'ya!
