Hooray for May! And for a box which this month took a little longer than usual to get here. But, with a longer wait comes more opportunity to look forward. I had seen plenty of sneaks of May at Gossamer Blue and I was getting what you might call more than a little excited when the doorbell rang, that box was in my hands and I could make a start, sticking.
So far, I have put together two pages, from a mix of the Main Kit, Life Pages kit and add ons, and the Bits and Pieces kit, which is always my favourite. The first
came about because I wanted to use some of the fresh reds and greens in this month's collections. So I chose a picture I took in Stavanger, Norway, to tell the story of a return trip. The first time we were there, I suddenly, without any warning, developed one of the worst headaches of my life; and I had to be unceremoniously escorted back to the cruise ship. Second time, several years and many migraine medications later, I spent a very happy full day exploring.
The chipboard is from Simple Stories, and in the Main Kit, the enamel dots are from the Bits & Pieces kit
as is the wood veneer and the alpha is from My Minds Eye Hello Gorgeous, in the Life Pages Add On #3.
My second page
uses more of the reds and greens. I've played around with it, taking pieces off and adding alternatives (the version on instagram isn't quite the same as this one) but as from now, I'm calling a halt. It's the words that really matter:
Maybe I was simply spoilt for choice? The May kits are so stuffed with embellishments I'm having to take a minute here to decide what to use next.....
