It's not always what you think...

Amy's May Design Team Kit

The pattern paper in the May kit is from the Teresa Collins collection Celebrate.  Because it was a birthday themed paper, I was convinced that I going to use it for a birthday layout.  However, after several weeks and no pictures to go with it, I remembered how Taraleigh from our design team did a layout that wasn't birthday at all.  And so, I soon found myself looking through photos with a new perspective.  Sure enough I spotted the perfect picture to go with the backside of the cupcake paper! 

I forget how easy it is to paint chipboard and love that how the color stays so true.  Included in the May kit was Maya Road chipboard banner pieces.  I originally wanted to put my title on them, but instead decided to use them as a 12" border. 

With the leftover scraps, I made a card and a tag.  I love to use tags on gifts because then I don't feel the pressure to have to write a little note inside.  A simple, "wishing you a happy birthday" works just fine!
