**Trying my hand at an 8.5x11 layout**

I wanted to break away from my traditional 12x12 layouts and try something fresh for a change--This months kit is filled with so much that I had a really hard time choosing which embellies and papers to use for my layout! Lynn has really outdone herself with the May kits and I used a little bit of everything from all of the kits this month! My favorite was the felt flower from Creative Imaginations--you can do so much with these flowers just by adding a little bling, or some Stickles, or just adding a simple metal brad in the middle like I did just adds a "WOW" factor to your design! If you have some embellies left over from April's kit, just pop them onto your layout--I discovered that the embellishments from last months kit work wonderfully with May's kit!!
Have fun with your kits, and I can't wait to see what you create!!

by the way, I'd like to introduce my new grandbaby, Rigo---his mommy is my newly adopted daughter and they are both incredible!! I'm sure you will see lots more of them in the next few months!!
