May's GTD and Challenge

Morning all and welcome to May,
I would like to introduce our last Guest Design Team Member for this term, I hope you enjoy the Inspiration from

Jenn Seymour

Hi!  My name is Jenn Seymour and I am very excited to be the Guest Designer for May here at Scrapbookit.  I am a mother of two beautiful little girls and I like to scrap in my spare time, mostly photos of my girls!  I try to keep my scrapbooking about the photo or photos as I hope that one day the girls will enjoy looking back at them.  I also love making off the page projects and cards to give to friends and family.  I like to keep things pretty simple and don't usually put too much on a page.  And I usually get drawn towards certain colours…..I think everyone who has girls finds it hard to get away from pink and purple!!  And I almost always use bling, again I guess this is influenced by my girls!

This month Jo sent me the beautiful Honey Chai Collection by Kaisercraft, so pretty, yet so far from what I usually use! So this is my challenge for May…..

Your layout must have the following

1 Black and White photo
2 copies of your Black and White photo (any sizes)
3 Embellishments (at least!)
4 patterned papers and a
5 word title!

Using a paper collection I would not normally pick was so much fun, thanks Jo, it definately was a challenge!  Here is what I came up with.

I have chosen a photo of my Husbands Nana and Pop on their wedding day.  Jo also sent me some amazing flowers from Manor House, that matched this paper so well, I counted them as my 3 embellishments, and as you can see I used a few extra embellishments.  My 4 patterned papers are obvious, as is my 5 word title.  Here is a close up of those beautiful flowers.

After finishing this page, I was having so much fun with green, so I thought why not do another!  I didn't follow the challenge rules for this one, but used the Honey Chai Collection again, only adding some white and brown card stock, the words from my silhouette cameo and the washi tape.

I also whipped up a few cards, just to see what else I could do with green…..I think it's becoming my new favourite colour!

All in all I had a great time working with the Honey Chai Collection, I hope what I have done gives you some inspiration and remember all these great papers can be found at the Scrapbookit store.
Good luck with your challenge entries and be sure to get them to Jo before the end of the month :)
