Our May Guest Designer is 
Sharla Laursen

and here's her fantastic layout:
Here's what Sharla shares about her layout:
"I just love sketches as a starting point for creating and I stayed as close to the sketch as possible. I used the sketch, which worked perfectly for these two pictures with Minnie, and I chose to use Magenta, Yellow and an overlay for my +3. The colors I used matched with Minnie's dress and the overlay I have had for years was a fun add to a fun memory. I used banners and a couple of circles, the white circle I embossed with a Cuttlebug mini dot folder for a little interest and texture. I've had a blast playing with these challenges and I can't wait to see all your layouts with this fun sketch and your +3!!"

Now it's your turn! 
Make sure you upload your layout on the side bar before May 29th!
