Take 5 Tuesday Challenge! - May

Hi friends, it's Mary Ann here today with the newest Take 5 Tuesday Challenge.
Let's get right to it with the list of ideas and inspiration for the month of May!

For my Take 5 layout, I used a combination of some of my favorite collections, mixing in a little bit of Crate Paper, Bella Blvd., Fancy Pants and topping it off with pieces from the brand new Fairy Tales collection by Doodlebug Designs! I love how they all go together so well and tell the story of my son's colorful Dr. Seuss pancakes. 
My 5 items from the Take 5 list are the color blue, sticker, enamel dots, patterned paper and a rainbow.  

Lisa used a few more than 5 items on this ah-maz-ing layout of her daughter. Not only did she use the FREE Criss Cross cut file from the store, she also used green, blue, cardstock, label, frame, sticker, something shiny, enamel dots, patterned paper and thread!!! Told you it was amazing!

Amanda challenged herself to make a boy layout using the Wild at Heart collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio for this sweet layout about her son. I love the wood veneer for the title!  Her 5 items from the list are blue, green, cardstock, frame, stickers, patterned paper and the star shaped enamel dots.

Kristie is our pocket page queen! She always makes the cutest pocket pages, and always seems to find the perfect embellishments! Here's both pages together that use Simple Stories Faith collection, and the color blue, label, sticker, something shiny, enamel dots and patterned paper.          

And here's is each side close up...

New team member Anna  shared this beautiful layout, don't you just love the layers of stitched papers! She uses the colors green and blue, cardstock, diamond, sticker, something shiny, enamel dots patterned paper and thread. Welcome to the team, Anna!

Look at this fantastic layout from Cat, the mixed media she did for the background is so fun with all the splatters of pretty colors! She used a combination of the Oh My Heart and Little by Little collections along with the colors green and purple, something shiny, decorative scissors and twine.  

And finally, from Stacie, this magical layout that uses the Magic Unicorn FREE cut file that she created for the Paper Issues Spring Crop along with the color blue, cardstock, stickers, enamel dots, and rainbow.  I love this layout, and especially love the FREE cut file!!!      

If you're new to our Take 5 Tuesday challenge, here's how it works...
I give you a list of items to use as your inspiration and starting point for your project. From that list, pick 5 items to use on your project. You can use more than 5, and combine your own ideas too, but to play along you must use at least 5 items from the list. Also, Take 5 is open to everyone, and is for scrapbookers, card makers, pocket pagers and off the page project makers too!
