As you all know, I am the guest designer at BackPorch Memories for May. I was given the Medley Kit to work with. Took pictures of the contents of the kit before I dove in.

Hubby wasn't cooperative last Thursday (received the kit that afternoon) - - I was soo excited to scrap that evening when he changed the plan and made me watch Angels and Demons with him instead (good movie, though). So I was able to whip 3 Friday night though I plan to scrap more tonight when everyone's asleep.

What I find soo amazing is the number of cardstocks and patterned papers and embellishments in this kit. Too good to be true - - plus they are perfectly coordinated, as in perfect! Couldn't ask for more.

Here are my first three layouts out of BPM's Medley Kit:

I browsed at what's left of my kit after 3 layouts and for sure I can do a lot more layouts (have to squeeze in a card also with still plenty of scraps after. I just pray everyone cooperates later so that Mommy can scrap. LOL.

Thanks for looking and do watch out for my other layouts out of this kit. ;o)
