Wow! I actually finished before the 1st! I haven't done that in quite some time. We had an open palette so I decided to use the same color palette from last month and continue on with the tropical theme. The theme for May is "Destination" (hometown, state, etc...). I chose Florida because that is where I live and have called this my home for the past 23 years. I was born and raised in Ohio but when I scoped out the planning thread there were already several "Destination Ohio" kits so I didn't think one more was needed. I was surprised to see so many Ohioan's in the forum though.
Anyway, last month I gave you the fish, now you get the birds and palms. I am in love with the paper I used for the background in my layout. I think it turned out really nice. I have included a few other papers which are under the banner in the preview, There isn't much to this kit so I hope it will be useful for something. If I find time (no promises), maybe I can make up some buttons, bows, ribbons, frames to add to it later. It's beach season so I plan on spending a lot of time at the beach this summer. We went to the beach so much last summer, lugging everything from the car down to the beach by hand...I am prepared this summer! We bought a wagon to carry everything...water cooler, food cooler, towels, blanket, pop-up dome for a little shade, boogie boards, inter-tubes, air pump, sunscreen....you get the drift...there's a lot to haul. This weekend is supposed to be in the 90's!
