CTMH's May Promo layout

Happy Tuesday!
As promised, here is the layout I made using the current promo from CTMH.....I've been wanting to scrap this photo for quite awhile now and these papers seemed perfect!

Journaling says:
Chester is such a thinker......That little brain of his just never stops! The swing at Nanny and Papa's is a great place to sit & ponder....
May 2006

I am going to enter my layout over at Cupcake Craft Challenges where they are looking for "I spy something beginning with C" - my "C" is for Chester who is the boy on the swing - okay, so maybe a stretch but it's true! Although Chester is only his on-line name, his real name also starts with a C. :)

You may purchase the kit for $38.95 or pay only $16.50 with a minimum purchase of $55.00. Check out what is included:

1 – My Acrylix® You & Me Stamp Set (D-size)
1 – 12" × 12" Colonial White Cardstock
6 – 12"× 12" B&T Duos® Papers
(New! Cardstock-weight)
1 – 6"× 9" You & Me Irresistibles™ Chipboard
Die-Cut Sheet
1 Yard – Chocolate Stripe Ribbon - yummy!!!!
1 Package – Opaques Mocha Adhesive Gems
1 – Instruction Guide

This stamp set is fabulous, it was so fun to play with as was the ribbon! Here is a close up to show the "irresistables" chip board pieces once I sponged them up with ink. Quick and easy title!

Hooray for getting another layout done! This really got me in the mood to do more, though I switched back to cards the next day - ya know, cards tend to be quicker and I do like immediate gratification......though I must admit that this layout came together quickly since I was working with a kit. Hmmm, maybe I'm on to something here....

It has been a very long day, best run and finish up the dishes and put away the groceries!

p.s. The info regarding the kit is meant for my customers who also follow my blog, for everyone else, please don't feel I'm trying to sell you something as that is really not the purpose of my blog. :)

p.p.s. Hope to be back tomorrow with a card I made using both the stamp of the month - Chairs to you and the papers from this kit.
