May brings warm weather and unfortunately, for many of us, we are jumping right into hot weather and summertime. So, why not celebrate with a picnic or BBQ. Our colors are the colors of bugs in the grass or a juicy piece of watermelon - black, red, and green.

RULES:

1. Use all three colors - Black, Red, and Green. You can use as many colors as you wish, just so these three are included and prominent. Try to use the true colors this time, without using shades, for a striking layout.
2. Any size of layout, digi or paper, one or 2-pages are allowed.
3. Only one layout per person can be submitted for voting. Can be digi, cards or any size layout.
4. You MUST allow public embedding to be entered into the challenge.
5. You can only upload new layouts from May 1st until May 31, 2014 at 5pm GMT/9am PST (sb.com time).
Open to new entries anytime during the month.
6. Please link the products used on your layout - it's great to find out what lovely products you have used.
7. Only when the challenge has been closed, PM me the numbers of your favorite 3 layouts. The layout with the most votes, wins!
8. Do not vote for yourself as you will get a vote from me for pm-ing yours.
9. Try to leave comments on the layouts entered in the challenge ... everyone needs a little love.
10. Have fun!

Twist: What's a picnic without an bug or two. Include an insect - ant, fly, ladybug or one of your choice.

Happy inter - National Scrapbooking Day to all!!!

All of the INSD sales are killing me, or I should say, killing my scrapbooking budget.

For those of you who print 12 x 12 Persnickertyprints.com has all sizes on sale this weekend - you buy credits and use whenever. 12x12s are normally 1.99 and now on sale for 1.49. They are the only place I print my pages.

I just don't get time to scrap nowadays but the bug kinda bit me again during yesterday's NSD. Hopefully, I'll make time to get all my supplies out and get creative again. it was weird, the first layout, I hummed and hawed for about 2 hours before putting anything on to paper ... next 2 layouts just flew

It was a beautiful weekend here and most everyone spent it outdoors. I got several little projects done and even cooked a little - and believe me, that is quite a project for me.

Hope all had a good weekend and ready to face the week ahead.

ACU and thanks to all well wishers while I was struggling at work. Great news I start next week and will spend this week relearning MS2010 software. I'm still concerned about other employees who were let go throughout this year and can't find a job. It seems PNC Bank has procedure of putting Misconduct and not provide details on Separation Notices so DOL will deny initial claims. Our DOL has caught on and all I have to do is wait for denial then submit evidence separation is really "Retaliatory" on my appeal and then DOL changes status so I become eligible. I will still call in my claim, even though it's only for 1.5 weeks. Every penny counts.

Here's my May entry!

Time to start thinking about next month. I'm thinking since June is the Father's Day month, that we go with a little more masculine colors. Of course we can twist them however we like, but if you have a Father's Day page, any of these colors would work great. What do you think?

Purple and Brown

Rust and Navy

Yellow and Salmon

Brown and Denim



Okay, maybe the yellow and salmon aren't so masculine, but could be. I am missing yellow! LOL

Okay, since everyone who voted couldn't decide between the rust and denim and the navy and brown, I have combined them a little:

Our new colors for June are Navy/Denim and rust. After all, if you use denim as a color, it is pretty much navy. The twist is to actually use denim as an embellishment or a bg paper.

Here is my sample:

The Blazer By PamStewart.Iowa

I will add the main photos as soon as they send them to me.



So, come join us for June:
