May at (Some) Assembly Required and More!

This is going to be one jam-packed post! Let's start with the SBO Design Team project for this week. Our sponsors for May are Paper Trunk, Glue Arts and Clear Scraps. Can I get a *whohoo*?? I ran the clear arrow through an embossing folder and added StazOn ink to the back. That was really fun, and I love how it looks. Details for this layout are here.

This fun little number comes courtesy of Di Hickman's May layout sketch. I had to turn the sketch sideways to fit the photos I wanted to use. I also got a chance to play with some new 7 Gypsies paper. And who doesn't love a punny title? Details are here.

The final project for this mega post is an altered birdhouse I made for the May challenge at (Some) Assembly Required. I don't think I'm done with it yet, but I wanted to get it finished enough for the blog upload. I bet you'll see this little beauty again with some more embellishments and such once the dust settles from all the National Scrapbooking Day hoopla. Speaking of which, if you're looking for me on Saturday May 3rd you'll be able to find me all over the net. Hope I bump into you!
