Default May 2017 - VSBN Merry Month of May

Welcome to our Merry Month of May Challenges!

"You are as welcome as the flowers in May."
~Charles Macklin

Please visit these holidays in May with us and join in the 5 challenges to spark your scrapbooking this month.
First let's visit Mexico as we celebrate "Cinco de Mayo" on the 5th. Next, hold onto your fancy hat and check out the Kentucky Derby while you sip a mint julep on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs, Louisville, Kentucky. Next holiday is Mother's Day, on the second Sunday. Next we show our gratitude on the third Saturday for the men and women of the Armed Forces who are necessary to help keep peace in this world. Our final challenge is about the delight of the entire month as we celebrate with music.

First and foremost, we invite you to join in for the fun!
1. Be sure to use the Keyword VSBN17May
2. Once you post your layout, please post a link to your post in this thread. We don't want to miss sharing what we accomplish!
3. May 31st is the last day of the month, so that is your goal! This is a challenge to get scrapping!
4. And, finally, have fun!

Yay....the May challenge is here. Thank you Joyce Ann and I have to figure out how I can work the last photos of our son into the challenge but there's lots here to work with.

Happy day.

Inspiration
Challenge #1. Cinco De Mayo – Celebrated on the 5th day of May.

Create a layout celebrating your heritage. Keyword: VSBN17May

Topics to scrap: What part of the world did you grow in? Is there a practice unique to your family, or a common one your family celebrates each year (or used to)?
Growing up in the South there was always plenty of sweet iced tea and fresh baked biscuits or cornbread at our meal. I remember as a child playing outside on Christmas day with friends, summer evenings in the yard with adults sitting outside nearby, catching fireflies in a jar. We always opened one gift on Christmas Eve, made real hot Hershey’s cocoa on Christmas morning, and listened to the Nutcracker during the day.

For your layout, you may choose to:
(1) use Mexican colors (whether it is your heritage or not),
(2) spotlight 5 (cinco) of something,
(3) or find inspiration in this photo.

Hacienda Architecture
- With a vast architectural heritage spanning four centuries, Mexican haciendas express a rugged, romantic beauty with their arched silhouettes, rich colors, and natural materials. (photo credit Hacienda Style : HACIENDA DESIGN Mexican Hacienda Design, Hacienda Architecture, Mexican Kitchens)

Photo Inspiration:
a. Think of this as a sketch with its frame of a central arch, symmetry on both sides of equal space but spotlighting different elements per side. Place photos so they balance each other on the page in weight. (Maybe vertically, with 2 smaller cropped and a tall single, or central main photo?)
b. Be inspired to use any of the natural elements that are present - the bright sunshine, the vines and palms, and the various stones. (Maybe a central design with a strong base and borders on the sides.)
c. There is plenty of shading, contrast and reflections. How can you represent this on your page? (Do you see a color scheme? Perhaps of contrasting blue and orange on a tan or yellow neutral with pops of white and green?)

Recipe

Callenge #2. Kentucky Derby - Celebrated on the 1st Saturday in May

Your Keyword: VSBN17May

Called “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports”, there are few American sporting events with the history and popularity of the Kentucky Derby. It’s rich traditions include sipping a mint julep, donning a beautiful hat, and joining fellow race fans in singing “My Old Kentucky Home” – making it a celebration of southern culture and a true icon of Americana. The Kentucky Derby is the longest running sporting event in the United States, dating back to 1875. The race is often referred to as "The Run for the Roses®" and has continuously produced “the most exciting two minutes in sports”; uninterrupted, even when coinciding with profound historical events like The Great Depression and World Wars I & II.

Here is your Kentucky Derby recipe: Use “two of something” plus the following “ingredients” to produce your layout

a. Something “minty”, like the color of light, minty green.
b. A cascade of flowers – like the draping of the winning horse. This can be as simple as a cluster of flowers to multiple stamped flourishes with bling. It’s up to you, do this your way.
c. A hat, either in a photograph or added with stamping, sticker, or patterned paper.

Origins

Challenge #3. Mothers day – Celebrated the Second Sunday of May


Your Keyword: VSBN17May

Let’s pay honor to the origins of scrapbooking and birth with an excuse to use items from our stash.

Even before the invention of the camera Scrapbooks were being used to collect mementos such as quotes, poems, calling cards, religious prayer cards, paper cutouts, and other ephemera. The reasons for scrapbooking then still hold today. It’s about expressing one’s thoughts, feelings and sentiments. It’s about preserving memories, special moments and recording family stories. In 1826, a book called Manuscript Gleanings and Literary Scrap Book was published and created by a man named John Poole. This taught people how to fill their own scrapbook with printed poems and engravings. The book also advised people on how to collect scraps and what to do with the scraps.

Perhaps you have photos of newborns, birthdays, or vacation shots of historic places depicting origins in your history. Photos of a mother and child will always be special.

Your challenge is to use papers and embellishments from what you have on hand, the older the better. Like the old folks say “Waste not, want not!” Find some ephemera you have been saving (or forgotten you had) and tuck it on your layout. You can make your own embellishments with cutouts too. Depending on whether you choose to scrap mom or that trip to Old Town, use some lace, twine, or string perhaps. If you haven’t been using your paints, sprays and stencils, how about adding something made from a multi-media technique? Emboss something to use as embellishment. Your playground is wide open for this – use as much or as little of the ideas as you like, just make it fun!

Color

Challenge #4. Armed forces – 3rd Saturday in May

Your Keyword: VSBN17May

Here in the US there are likely to be parades. That means a chance to come together to salute those members of the armed forces within our community. We wave flags, hang banners, wear red, white, and blue.
Here is your chance to incorporate some flags and banners on your page. Perhaps you will build your layout on large pieces cut to the shapes of flags, or hand a row of pretty banners or flags.

Although it would be nice to see some red, white and blue, your color scheme may be anything happy or bright.

Music

Challenge #5. Sounds of May - May is better hearing month

"May, queen of blossoms,
And fulfilling flowers,
With what pretty music
Shall we charm the hours?
Wilt thou have pipe and reed,
Blown in the open mead?
Or to the lute give heed
In the green bowers."
~Lord Edward Thurlow.

Your Keyword: VSBN17May

For this challenge you are encouraged to be inspired by
the 3 "B's": Birds, Bands, and Beethoven.

Pick at least one item from each category.

Category 1. For Birds your challenge is to use a bird image or related imagery to the genre such as feathers, eggs, nest material like string, leaves.
Category 2. Use any words from a song produced by a favorite band. Use any way you like: set your title with words from the lyrics, add snippets of the words in the body, or something as imagery from the words.
Category 3. Be inspired by classical music. You are challenged to use something pertaining to a musical instrument, sheet music or a music symbol or note.

I'm excited to do all five of these challenges this month. I'm going to a Scrapbooking Retreat this weekend and plan on working on our Mexico cruise trip. (Perfect for the 1st challenge!) And I need to scrap some concert photos that DD & I went to in February - perfect for #5. I've got this!

Default Out On The Weekend...With A Little Help From My Friends

Out on the Weekend With A Little Help From My Friends by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Happy National Scrapbooking Day everyone.
Here's a 2 page LO I started yesterday and have just completed today...Yay!

This is for Challenge #5 - Music (I decided to start with what I had photo wise and run with that )

Category 1: I used patterned paper depicting trees and birds and used string on my photos

Category 2: This was tricky as although I love music, most of my favourite albums or songs are very lovey dovey , so I decided to try and find a song or album from our collection that was right for the LO. My hubby is a big fan of Neil Young so "Out on the Weekend" is from his first Neil Young album "Harvest". We both also like the Beatles and Joe Cocker so on the tag is "With a Little Help From My Friends". Seems appropriate for this LO

Category 3: Music Paper & Music Stickers added

The LO is our son with various friends at 3 separate summer music festivals. The Post-it notes don't add to the LO but I need to respect their privacy. Not sure what our son will say having his photo plasted all over this site.....LOL.

Thank you for taking time to look at my LO. Happy weekend and I'm on a roll.....Challenge #2 here I come.

Default VSBN17MAY - #2: Flower Power at the Races

Flower Power at the Races by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Here's my LO for Challenge#2.

When I saw Joyce Ann's challenge relating to the Kentucky Derby, I had just the photos for our own National Race Day....Melbourne Cup Day. Our son and his friends went to Melbourne for this event in 2015. Unfortunately the only photos he had were of them looking dapper and no horses, so I was on the net (again) printing off scenes from the actual day.

This is a busy LO but I think I managed to keep to the challenge:

2 photos were used
Mint Green bazzill yardstick and also mint green flowers
There's definitely a cascade of flowers....I had to use as many as I could to cover up what I didn't like LOL
There's hats on the riders (including the winner...female jockey with a green hat) and also the lady on the poster for the 2015 event is wearing a nice little hat...it sort of gives it a vintage look don't you think?

I decided to leave the photos and not cover up faces for this LO...our son has them plastered on the net anyway and most people who attend this event love to get their photo in the limelight LOL.

Thanks for the challenge Joyce Ann and thanks everyone for taking time to look at my LO. This will be my last one this weekend. Tomorrow is poppet day (grandchildren) and golf

Happy weekend everyone.

I just posted Challenge #2. I hope it was ok to use pocket page style instead of the classic 12x12 layout.

Challenge #1 done! My husband and I are both from Mexico descent and our biggest regret is that neither one of us really learned the language. Both parents and grandparents speak Spanish but we only know a little. Anyhow, here's my layout:

I forgot to add that backyard cricket was a family tradition, and especially at Xmas when we were all together. When the boys were younger, we either used to go to parks or use our back lawn. Since we have retired and downsized, our current lawn is only large enough for our grandchildren to play, so family traditions have turned to board games, darts or bocce in the park.

The photos are of our 3 boys. The eldest boy (the bald one) used to play Districts Cricket and could have gone further but chose to socialise with his friends.....mmmm! The 2nd son is into cars and bikes and the youngest boy whose album I am trying to finish (LOL) is mainly into soccer but loves all sports, particularly extreme ones.

I love the family traditions at Xmas and times when we all get together which is difficult whilst they are all working, travelling or finding their way in the world. I miss the backyard cricket. My hubby is the one sitting in the shade. We all used to get up there and bat , fun times.

Thanks for the chat and for helping me create a memory. jx

Default Bullseye on Mothers Sunday

Bullseye on Mothers Sunday by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Here's my LO for VSBN17May Challenge#3. It was only after I'd uploaded it that I realised that the photo was taken on a Sunday and it was Mothers Day when we were all invited up to our eldest boy's home. I'm now practically doing cartwheels as I managed to stick to a LO relating to this day We were also keeping up family traditions...playing darts

Everything used was in my stash and the papers, emphera, plastic calendar, metal sentiment and twine have been there for a while. I used 2 different twines...I was trying to get the effect of the dartboard...it didn't quite work but is about as creative as I can get LOL.

When I read Joyce Ann's note about the playground being wide open....oh dear...I was supposed to be scrap lifting Lela's LO (which I hope you can still see in mine) but that new crackle paste that had been sitting in my cupboard for several weeks was itching for its seal to be broken. I'm a big kid at heart and when playgrounds are mentioned, off I go on my merry way

Thanks for taking time to read about my afternoon and for looking at my LO.

I'm on a roll and have papers out for another double...can I do it before we leave on a jet plane next weekend....watch this space!

Happy weekend everyone.
