Hi everyone,

Can you believe we have hit MAY? So on the 1st of the month, it is time for me to reveal the May Mystery Box challenge that I create for RED EARTH SCRAPPING each month.

Create a layout or card using the following ingredients:
* Misting with masks - you should try to use two different types of masks
* Stitching of some kind - machine, hand or even hand-doodled is fine
* Strips of paper
* Hand written journalling - preferably lots of it!
Remember you can add your own pantry staples, but you must stick to the core ingredients as much as possible!

So today I would like to share this layout...

I used new Crafters Workshop masks - both the hearts (in stock) and chicken wire (currently out of stock, but Helen is getting more!)
I handstitched around the masked hearts (I love this!)
Used lots of paper strips - left overs from the layouts I created last week with Patterned Paper
Plus I did lots of journalling.
Letters: Prima
Embellishments: Handmade Halo Pebble, Handmade Halo Wooden Button, MME button and pins, Prima flowers I stole out of the April SUNSHINE kit.

So please join us this month.... I would LOVE to see what you cook up! Load your completed projects into the RES gallery by the end of the month for some great in store vouchers!
