A few things

Hey there... welcome to my monthly blog post! I hoped to get here sooner but April is a busy month for Birthdays, also my parent celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
I've had fun decorating gifts with paper the photo below, I tried to copy the flower on the pretty gift wrap.

My daughter has often asked for some flowers for her bed side table....I surprised her with these for her birthday,they look so pretty.

 "Sketch Boards" has a great sketch and recipe for the May Challenge
Image may contain: text

The background paper is from a 12 x 12 paper pad....I used the left over strips at the top of the pad for the strips behind the photo adding texture with stitching.
The stars are brads, stamping, die cuts, and stickers for the journalling.

Well, that is it for now...Happy Crafting
