Happy month of May!  So much going on with the onset of warm weather, right?  I've made a conscious effort to NOT live on my computer and get outside to enjoy things and get some much needed exercise!  Been walking a mile in 20 minutes on my indoor treadmill three or so times weekly during winter, but I can take myself outdoors until winter comes again.  My grandkids are in T-Ball, baseball, soccer, and gymnastics; and I'm a spectator in the stands.  My DH's birthday was the 8th, so last Sunday when all could gather we had a family cookout to celebrate his birthday.  My DD has one coming up on the 22nd.  Planning a pool party/cookout for that one.  I've had my outing for Mother's Day already with my DD as she will be at the Darlington races on Sunday, and I have a job to perform from 7 am to 1 pm on Sunday that will preclude any fun early in that day.  We just have to work around the things that must go on, but we do manage to work it all in.  Our mothers' gifts and cards are in the mail, hopefully to be delivered today since we live a good 8 hrs. away.  They are 84 and 74, going strong, and we are so lucky!

I have just now put the finishing touches on another paper pack FREEBIE for you all, my MAY PAPERS.  This pack has 7 backgrounds, all 12 x 12, 300 dpi, jpgs.  As always, these are PU/S4H/S4O.  I tried my hand at making them a little more on the artsy side, so I hope you like that.  I took an Art Journaling class a while back over at Jessica Sprague.  It was loads of awesome fun and more freestyle than I've been used to.  I need to get into that more often!  It's very liberating to just ACT like an artist!

Here's the preview . . .

and here is a closer look at the May text paper which inspired this pack . . .


Don't forget to leave some love if you download my freebies.  Also, unzip your file right away as I have a May discount coupon in it to my Etsy store if you're interested in browsing through my handcrafts.  I have to work on those store listings today as they have just recently expired.  I'll have it restocked in a matter of hours today.  Been crafting on some yummy new stuff too! 

Also going to work on my "Pages" here and get some layouts posted for you to see in case you're in need of inspiration.  I always get a few pages scrapped through each week, but I'm not so good at getting them up here on the blog so you can see them as I used to be.  Will be working on that until your next freebie is ready.

Had a busy chore day yesterday, so simply going to do some plant repotting today and tinker in the flower beds.  Have a good one!  Check back soon!
