Hello there! Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmas and aunts! Today was a really good day that we woke up early and chill out at a public pool. It was so sunny that I just realised, I didn't get any baby sunblock for Ivan. Just in case you are wondering, he was wearing a neck floatie, that sits right above his shoulders, and he could actually swing his arms and legs while swimming. It does look weird and attracts a lot of attention, but he just loves it! And he has been wearing this since he was 4 months old ;)

Before I go ahead to share my May Layouts for Elle's Studio gallery, here's the awesome May 2014 kit, with a lot of blue and red. And this month, Elle's Studio also came up with a mini special collection - Patriotic kit. Check out the details here.
Since we celebrate Mother's Day in May, so I decided to make a layout for myself, using my favourite photo of us. And I have finally pull out my cameo to make some cut files, using Elle's Studio May digital cut file. I have been lazy using my Cameo for weeks! Wilna's inspirational video really inspires me to play with paints and also my beloved Cameo.
I make a huge cut file with the 'Just Sayin' speech bubble and wanted to layer it in top of the rainbow paint strokes. I kinda like how the white speech bubble pop up on top of the paint strokes. I only painted the rainbow in six colours, and I realised I needed some green to balance the page, so I pull out some green tags from May Kit to make a complete rainbow.
I have not dated the layout yet, I have scrapped this page previously, I will just pull out my Project Life album or previous layout to check the date of the photo taken. ;)
Madly in love with this month wood veneer that has this lovely quote: Bloom where you are planted. Super suitable for this layout as we were holding a red carnation in the picture.
And then, I decided to show appreciation to my husband too! So I made a layout of him and Ivan, inspired by the mini Patriotic collection. I don't celebrate Memorial Day in Singapore / Malaysia, but some of the tags and the cut files could be use for our super hero daddy too!
This is a cute photo of my husband and Ivan looking on a notepad, couldn't remember what were they doing, but I just think that this photo is so precious.
Using May digital cut file, and layer the 'oh, hello; puffy sticker from Shop Evalicious.
Also added a lot of die cut felts that I made using Craftwell eBosser. I die cut a lot of butterflies and stars with blue and red / pink felt to complete this red & blue layout. Couldn't resist adding more puffy stickers from Shop Evalicious to the banner of this layout ;)
The star wood veneer from the Mini Patriotic collection is too cute!
I have one more layout to show appreciation to the gramps using this month Elle's Studio cut files, which will be posted later! Stay tuned. Do remember to drop by Elle's studio Design Team gallery to check out the amazing projects by the DT girls. And I hope you have a lovely weekend ;)
