Take 5 Tuesday Challenge - March

Hello friends, it's time for the newest Take 5 Tuesday challenge!!  Here is this month's idea and inspriation list, we can't wait to see what a.m.a.z.i.n.g things you create!!

If you're new to the Take 5 Challenge, be sure to read all the way to the bottom for ideas and info on how the challenge works :)

And, here is my layout, using the Chasing Dreams collection by Maggie Holmes. My 5 items from the list are, the colors blue and mint green, stitching, stickers and leaves/flowers.  You might notice that I didn't use any patterned papers at all, just my cardstock base with a bit of blue paint brushed on, then pieces of ephemera, chipboard and alpha letters. It's not very often that I don't use any patterned paper at all, but I was so in love with the ephemera from this collection, once I started pulling out pieces to use, they all layered together so well, I just went with it! How perfect is that map piece and castle book for a Disneyland layout!

Now for more inspiration from the team...

Pol used the beautiful Hazelwood collection for her layout, doesn't this look fabulous! She uses mint green, stickers, patterned papers, leaves/flowers and a circle from the challenge list.

Check out the stitching on this layout from Ali!! Wow, what a beauty!!  Her 5 items are the color blue, stitching/twine, 2 or more photos, patterned paper, and flowers/leaves. 

I always say Lisa is the queen of the cards, and she proves that yet again this month! Look at all the fabulous layering! Her 5 items are the color blue, stitching, stickers, patterned paper and circles.

Amanda said she was "stashbusting" on this layout, using some of Maggie Holmes' Gather collection along with mint, peach, cardstock, stickers and chipboard. I love those fussy cut flowers!!!
