C'est Magnifique Sketch Challenge & One More Layout for May!

Good morning! It feels weird to be posting every day again- but it's a good weird! I'm happy to be back to my busy scrappy self :). Today I have two layouts for you using the popular, gorgeous, and sold out May Kit from C'est Magnifique, so let's get started!

We recently celebrated my niece Paisley's first birthday and let me tell you- this girl knows how to eat her cake! (If I could get away with it, this is how I would eat my sweets too!) ;)~ I'm in love with the pretty feminine pastel colors available in this kit- PERFECT for a little girl's first birthday layout :)

From the Flower Add-On:
Green Tara: Camellia: Peach
Manor House: Winters Song: White

Here's the amazing sketch we have this month for you, designed by Michele Singh:
Our Sketch Challenge is open to everyone and you may use any supplies you have on hand.  You do not need to be a member of our kit club to participate.  Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch.
We will be offering two prizes, awarded randomly to participants in our Sketch Challenge.  The first prize is this beautiful assortment of paper, embellishments, and chipboard that Leslie has put together.  The winner of this prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping.
Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store,  will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 
We will also chose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of May to submit your layout.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1.  You must be a follower of our blog.  It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the sketch post over at C'est Magnifique HERE.

 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, May 31, 2013 (US time).

Next, I have one more layout for you using the May kit!
"My Rainbow to Keep"
 It's amazing how long it takes sometimes to get a special photo scrapped. My sister took this picture of Aspen and myself on Aspen's 1st birthday and I've had it printed since that time (last September). This page just seemed to be "the one" to get it done :). I wanted to make it very feminine and simple and though the white space isn't my usual thing, it just felt right here.

Take care,
