May Challenges *Flying Unicorn*


Hi everyone! WOW it is May already..can you believe how fast 2012 is going already. Here is hoping the next few months slow down a bit so we can enjoy them! With a new month comes lots of new challenges in the Flying UnicornForums.  I have 2 layouts to share today that I have started new challenges with. The first one is for the May Fantasy Flowers Challenge using one of the new Prima collections, Dusty Attic chippys and gorgeous Manor House flowers, all available in the Flying Unicorn store. Anyone can play this challenge and you can use any flowers. The photo is my daughter and grand son last month at Easter.

I have used two of the notecards from the Prima collection to mat the photo.

Two more close-ups of the MH flowers and the chippy. For some of the flowers I have used glimmer mist on them to get the colors I needed.


My next layout is for my “circle” challenge I am running this month. I fell in love with this layout after I finished it. I was not expecting that I would enjoy using circles as much as I did. The photos are my grandson and I have used 3 of the same photo. I did some stamping with some Dusty Attic chippys and gesso and used naked chippys on the layout.

I hand made the rosette flowers and added some liquid pearls, ink and paint to them.

Look at this cutie pies blue yes…and they are blue for real too!


Well that is it for today. Come on over to the FlyingUnicorn and play along with us, there is lots of inspiration there. I hope that you all have a fantastic week! Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
