Here is my first layout, using only the goodies in the main kit and the brand new sketch from Stuck on U Sketches:

Featuring my niece,Vivien in her first princess crown. Yes, it's on backwards but with that smile,we'll just let it pass..

Look at the beautiful sketch Amarilys has created for May:

Here is what I made with it,using the add-ons:

I made the paper roses with my Spellbinder die and the pretty Smooch that comes with the main kit. These are older pics of my daughter that I have been waiting for the right papers..I love how the sunshine highlights her face and these sunny papers and blooms were perfect!

See details about the challenge here: Sketch Challenges
Be sure to also check out the details of our monthly DT challenge
 hosted in May by Sarah here: DT Challenge
We have a Round Robin Challenge to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day this month as well hosted by me!  It looks like it will be a blast!

For my last layout, I had no design in mind but just played with it:
As soon as I saw these papers,I remembered this pic of Naomi wearing this favorite outfit. Perfect match,right? I made the flowers with Prima papers as well and the ribbon is from my stash.
