Hello, everyone! Good Sunday morning to you!

It is (almost) a new month and that means that we have a new theme, and a new set of challenges for you today!

DT member Lauren is providing our challenges this month, and they are going to be fun! Our theme is "All About The Big Picture" and our first challenge is:

LM #342 - Use small embellishments (buttons, brads, bling, enamel dots, etc) to create BIG number(s) or letter(s) on your page.


We have two guest designers joining us in May. Please help us welcome Tina Phillips and Carrie Williams!

May GDT - Tina



My name is Tina and I'm from Knoxville TN. I'm a mom of five boys, yes 5!!!! All out of the nest except my baby boy, who is 12 and 6'3 (yikes!!). I started scrapping after he was born thinking I would just make a baby book.... It turned into a full blown obsession. I do both digital and traditional paper and adhesive layouts.  I'm not sure I can put a label on my style. Most of my layouts are of boys (duh) and I occasionally steal/borrow facebook photos of friends and relatives daughters when I wanna do something girly. I love, love, love patterned paper and in most of my layouts I use a lot of it. My blog has been neglected since I discovered Instagram....feel free to visit and say hello!

May GDT - Carrie


I'm married to my high school sweetheart and am a stay at home mom to two fur babies and a toddler, Zae, who inspires most of my scrapping. We live along the Mississippi River in Minnesota, where the long, cold winters make for lots of cozy nights in my craft room. l love to pull bits and pieces from a variety of styles and mix them up to see what happens.
You can find more of Carrie's beautiful work on her blog - Dear Zae

Here are the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team:

Sandy


Natalie




Wow - such awesome inspiration from our talented design team!


Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #341 - Color Inspiration

Hello everyone! We are so happy to have you here! We hope that you are having a good weekend.

First of all, we would like to say a huge thank you to Deanna and Giorgia for being our guest designers this month! We have loved seeing the beautiful layouts that they have share with us.

For our last Spring themed challenge you are to create a layout using the following color palette.  I just love all the varied shades of green in this combination with just a hint of pinks.  You don't have to use the same ratio of colors in the photo and it doesn't have to be an exact match, but close enough so that we can tell you used the color palette.

LM #341 - Use the following color inspiration photo.


First up is our April Guest Designer with her super cute layout





Sandy
