123 challenge for may

Here is my may challenge,

Gosh , the month of may  is nearly over, where  it has flown,  by next month ,half way though the year.

Tonight, i thought, i would just do a fairly simple page  as now getting close to month now feel like making some layouts, so  i can not afford them to be too complicated at this time of the month.

As I started my mind was thinking of another challenge, that starts with a white sheet of card stock, then realized, that I was not doing that one as it had too many things to add to the page,
Like Banners  for one, the word Baby and the colour Beige.

So With white card stock , i then found my patterned papers,  it wasn't til i was almost finished the layout, that the papers are really for wedding papers, so with a bit of altering , i think i have  got rid of the rings on the page.

This paper is from Porta Craft  papers, using the beige doves  and then cutting out some birds and popping them up with foam tape over the rings.
With the striped paper is from the same collection and instead of getting out my machine to cut a circle, i just used my double sided tape and hand cut it out.

The Title is OUR BABY NEPHEW Greg. done with  American Crafts Thickers Sweetie range  already made in banners with letters on, how cool is that ready made.
The small butterflies are from Studio Calico Stickers. and have attached them to  string over the page

I have added a 4 x 6  Journal card .as well.
