May Ingredients Challenge

This months ingredients challenge is here again. First of all let's meet the three ladies taking part:

Jackie Ashton:

Hi, I'm Jackie, married with one son, (12) and living in Birmingham. I have always been interested in crafting of some sort, but found over the past few years that I LOVE scrapbooking. I love to add details to my layouts buttons, hand stitching and distressing and inking. I have made loads of lovely friends and love going to crops and retreats to not only gain the extra insight into new techniques but to spend quality time with like minded people. My new technique I want to learn is to crochet and knit. The kit was lovely to work with but the papers were not normally the colours I would use so it was a challenge, but a worthwhile one.

Tina Thomas:

I'm Tina (aka tinasue) I've been scrapbooking since 2005, I started just to do a Prom book for my eldest Daughter and I still havn't done one! I love that scrapbooking has enabled me to combine my favourite two hobbies, photography and playing with pretty paper. The papers included in this challenge were great to work with and the weight was just brilliant for cutting on my Cricut.

Fabiana Dixon:

I am Fabiana (Fab to my friends). I have been scrapbooking for about 3 years, having started as a card-maker. I share my life with my two teen boys, who indulge my endless scrapping. I work full time in a Project/Finance role, and love crafting to both relax and challenge my creativity. I love experimenting, and like nothing better than playing with a new paper range, some sparkle, and a little ink of course! I really love the journey from the raw products to a completed project, and beyond, to the faces of the people its intended for!! I think thats my favourite moment! I recently got my own scrap room, and thats just glorious, a real creative capsule for me. Everything is now readily to hand and thats already freeing my flow of work so that I am just creating rather than wondering where to find things!

And here are their layouts:
