May Layouts

Today we have some more layouts to share from the girls, using their May Monthly Packs.  We hope you'll find them inspiring.
Buzz Saw by Deb Pulford (CT)
Deb's layout uses lots of colour and layered panels to tell the story of the Buzz Saw.  Paper folding, edging and rounded edges keep the layout simple.  The black Ric Rac breaks it up nicely too, in line with the stripes.  Well done Deb.
My Friends by Beth Metcalf
Beth has used a great mix of colours on her layout. The layered flowers look great, and a bit of black doodling defines the edges.  The ruffled trim softens the layout even more, and the chip shapes add texture and depth.  It's great to have the kids do their own journalling too (this is half of a double page).  Well done Beth.
Python by Anita Bownds (CT)
Here we have a photo of Anita's daughter Kara, holding a python Snake at an animal park in Maryborough.  She has added a splash of black water paint to the background of the grey cardstock  A bit of doodling around the edge of the border with a black pen defines the edges. To make the photo pop Anita has punched a decorative border edge beneath the top and bottom. The offcuts from the border edging has been layered with the red patterned paper strip.  A very clean cut layout Anita, the colours are great and I love the spattering.  And I take my hat off to Kara - awesome photo!

Keep posted, we have more to share!

Your folded circles look great Deb and the papers go so well with the fun theme. Love the way you've layered the chipboard flags Beth - all the muted colours look lovely against the light grey Anita. Not sure about that snake though!

Deb, the folded circles look great and its a great way to show both sides of the paper!
Beth, the layered chip looks awesome and the large flowers look great.
Anita, love how the border punch matches the markings on the snake.
