Snow in May, new Stash challenge at SOS!

I can't believe that it is May 2nd and I am watching snow fall from the sky.  The weather here has been so weird since we moved from Raleigh, NC, we are getting all the extremes!  All I want are a few good thunderstorms.  My son says we need to move back to Raleigh, although I suspect that has more to do than with just the weather, poor little guy.

Not sure how the weather is in your neck of the woods, but maybe it's a great time to scrap.  And with the beginning of May there's a new stash challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  It's a Patterned Paper Party! 

The Challenge is to create a LAYOUT using 3 or more patterned papers, and you MUST use papers from
3 or more different collections. Of course there's a twist! 
you also need to dig further into your stash and pull out some RUBONS!  

NOTE:  When posting your layout on your blog or gallery, please comment with the 3 collections you used for your 3 patterned papers.  The collections can be by the same or different manufacturers.

The prize this month is a great one, the Fancy Pants Trendsetter collection!

Good luck, you have until May 29th to post your layout at Scrap Our Stash

Anyway, April seemed to speed by with Easter, First Communion, and just an overall busy family life.  I totally flaked and didn't write a single blog post!  Here are the layouts I did for the April Scrap Our Stash challenges. 

Products used:  Fancy Pants Beach Bum collection along with a Maya Road bird paper clip, American Crafts Thickers, and Bazzill cardstock.

Products used: Basic Grey (patterned paper, cardstock stickers and alpha), Bazzill cardstock, MME layered sticker and buttons, Heidi Swapp Color Shine, and misc. doily and flower

You can tell when I took both of the pictures of my layouts it was overcast and rainy.  Here's to much sunnier weather in May!!
