so not organised!!

There was I, April pages finished, May pages ready, photos taken, and then what happened? (see previous post)I have had a call and garageman he say - your clutch has gone missus. So, having been really careful with money last month because I have plans to go to Port Sunlight stampers show, I now need even more money than I probably saved to pay for said clutch.....darn!!!!
So here are my May pages ready
 I used one of my favourite stamps from Stampendous along with some stencilled flowers and a Craft Stamper freebie and basically should have stopped stamping long before I did so I'm not especially happy with this, although I do like the colours. Journal spots were done by stamping onto my craft mat with distress inks and smooshing and spritzing, very therapeutic!
Here are my finished April pages, as you can see I've been quite busy, no wonder April went so quickly!!   
Thanks to Kate at http://thekathrynwheel.blogspot.com/ for 
the motivation to keep a 'diary', my boys are most impressed 
that I've kept up with this and I hope they and my 
grandchildren will enjoy reading them someday.
                         
Thanks for looking, I didn't do so well getting to look many others last month so hope to make up for it this time, Chrisx

I love that term 'smooshing' and I love your colour scheme. They are both great but I think April is my fave.

I think your May pages look great. I thought my pages were purple but everyone says they are pink. Yours are a much better purple than mine! Yes, it looks like you were v busy in April - isn't it interesting to look back over the month? Well done for keeping up so far - only 8 months to go LoL!

What lovely colours you've used. One of the reasons I'm doing the challenge is for my grandchildren to read in the future, which I think is a great idea.

LOl Chris - i saw your blog name and though "oh that could be me" and then i see you are also called Chris! Twins perhaps LOL - but I digress.
I love the fresh vibrant colour of your May page and those big flowers are just perfect. Bad news about the clutch :( - hope something works out for you & that you you manage to get to PS.
