Week 1 {ODBDLYLS5} Scrapbook Challenge

Thank you to everyone who played along with us in our April Scrapbook Challenge! We had more players this past month, and it was wonderful looking at how you all used ODBD stamps on your scrapbook pages! Now, with that being said, it's time to announce our April Let Your Light Shine Scrapbook Challenge $25 Gift Certificate Winner. Our blessed winner for April is: Debbie Moran.

Congratulations Debbie!! Please e-mail Kelley at kelley@ourdailybreaddesigns.com for more
information on how to claim your gift certificate.  We have also chosen a LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE AWARD for April, and that winner is Gemiel!  Congrats Gemiel!!

Please grab the Shining the Light Award Badge and display it with pride. Please link the badge to http://ourdailybreaddesigns.com/.

Now, let's look at our challenge for May!  As we enter this month of May, I think of flowers, blooming trees, singing birds, and blue skies. So your challenge for this month is to create a layout of any size using ODBD stamps AND adding either flowers, trees/leaves, or birds to your layout. You can stamp them, use them as embellishments, or showcase them in your photos. Get creative on how to add one or more of them to your layout along with your ODBD stamps.

"Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers.
- Thomas Tusser, 1557 "

Now let's look at my inspiration for you today using this new May challenge:

8x8 Page by Patter Cross
ODBD Store Products Used: Scripture Collection 6 (scripture), Don't Worry (flowers), Hero Arts pearls, Prima Madeline paper

To see close-up photos, complete supply lists, etc., please visit my blog by clicking on my name just above the scrapbook page. Now, it is your turn to play! Here are the guidelines:

**You must use ODBD stamps on a scrapbook page of any size!
**Other stamps are allowed, but ODBD images need to be the focus!
**Use Keywords ODBDLYLS5 and ODBD when linking to SCS or other public galleries.
**The same keywords will be used for this entire month of May!
**To be eligible for the $25 gift certificate, leave a link to your creation here using Inlinkz.
**All entries for the entire month must be linked to this first post of the month using Inlinkz.
**If you use either your blog link or online gallery, please give a link back to this challenge page.

The challenge runs through Tuesday, May 31st, at 6 p.m. Eastern. You have all month to enter. You can enter as many times as you like, just remember to link your creations to this first post. We will select a winner from ALL of the May scrapbook challenge entries for a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store! The winner will be announced with our new challenge that will begin Tuesday, June 7th! Thanks for stopping by, and we can't wait to see what you create! Have a blessed day!

Congrats, ladies! Both of your layouts are so gorgeous! Thanks for a great challenge this month, Patter! I am trying really hard this time to squeeze it in, but you know I'm even slower at scrapping than card-making!!! Your sample is fab, BTW!! Blessings, Angie
