Hello there and welcome to Project 12 for May! Are you still capturing your month in this fun easy way with me? For Project 12 this month I wanted to share my process in creating a layout inspired by The Colour Suite in addition to the PageMaps sketch by Becky Fleck. The first thing I do is shop my stash based on the color palette given. I have found this type of challenge to be the perfect way to utilize the "stash". What’s the point in keeping it all if you aren’t going to use it? Based on the colour suite we are challenged with this month (just released today so check it out here), this is what I came up with:
If you are familiar with these products, you’ll notice that flower paper hails from…2008. It was definitely time to put it on a layout!
It is only after I have the products picked out that I shop my digital files to put it all together on a layout. Because this is Project 12, obviously that means going through my April photos and choosing those that represented the month for me. This month that meant digging through my digital files as well as my camera photos, as I use my Iphone a lot in documenting our life.
I had previously decided to use the January 2010 sketch for this layout.
My girls are still busy helping me with school, we celebrated Easter, started softball, and have been enjoying the everyday. The month just flew by. For fun I wanted to see what my layout looked like when I utilized this sketch the first time in January, 2010.
I hope you are still busy documenting your everyday on a layout. Be sure to check back next month. I will have a new Project 12 layout to share with some fun tips and tricks, and also a new "idea" I think you’ll like to document your summer!
The next sketch I plan to use to document May, 2012, is this sketch, from March, 2011:

I hope you’ll play along with the challenge this month ~ it's very easy! If you are new to this challenge, here's how it works:
2. You are recapping the past month so you will be working on your May layout now and linking it to this post by June 14th. That gives you two weeks once the month is finished to complete your layout!
3. To increase the challenge level you can use the current Colour Suite challenge for the month. So, for your May layout you would use the May Colour Suite challenge:
4. We have added a prize feature so be sure to link your May layouts to this post by June 14th and I’ll randomly draw a winner for a prize.
Enjoy the rest of your May! Keep taking those photos and documenting those memories.
