It's sketch time at The Sampler again!! I really loved this May sketch (well, to be honest I love almost all sketches!!)  and had so much fun scrapping again. After 3 days of celebrations and no time to scrap (2 birthdays and 1 day of preparations) I was so happy to sit behind my scrapping desk again this morning!

Here's the May sketch:

And here's my layout:

In a box full of random photos, I found this one of my parents and me under the Christmas tree way back in 1963!

The AC sheet with all the letters that is included in the kit is perfect for the title. I used my Round 14 punch from Epiphany Crafts to create the epoxy letters for the title.

The hearts are also created with paper from the kit and punches from Epiphany Crafts (heart 14 and heart 25). The cut-out flowers are cut from the package the Prima canvas came in. :-)

For the border punched a lot of butterflies and machine stitched them to my page, then folded them a bit to give some dimension to my page.

And you know what?????!!!!! If you join in with the May sketch challenge you have a chance to win this complete MAY KIT!!!! All you have to do is head over to Holly's blog and link up your take on the sketch!!!!

I'm off to play some more with the kit!
