May I??

This is the Scrap Our Stash theme for the month of May. Basically you go to a blog where you feel inspired and ask to lift something. I chose my friend and designer Aimee Kidd's blog, because she always has such beautiful and inspiring things to look at. (Looking for fab Father's day ideas? She just posted a totally cute one!)

But for this month's challenge I chose this layout to lift:
Treasured Moment
The bright, fun colors and patterns pulled me in and then you see those sweet bike riding photos and all the fun embellishing, so I had to lift it.
Here's my layout:

As you can see I kept the same basic design, but with different papers and stars where flowers were, it makes a great page about a busy boy.

I used BB On the Go papers and stickers, orange twine, EK Success border punch. I inked all my edges in black but went all out for the outer edge to give it more definition. From my stash I used stars - Heidi Swapp, brads - BB & 3Bugs and paper clip - BB and a white pen for journaling.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'd love to hear about what inspires you and blogs you like to lift from, just leave a comment below. :)
