May "May I" Challenge by Stacy H-W

Hello everyone!!  Stacy here to share my May I project with you today.  As soon as I heard of this challenge I immediately knew who I was going to be inspired by because I am inspired by her everyday.  Denise at Lala's World Blog is one of the most exciting, inspirational scrappers I know.  She actually is the person who introduced me to scrapping.  I can't believe that 2 years ago I had never scrapped!! 

For this challenge I went to Lala's World and when I scrolled down I found the perfect layout to  scraplift.  I really just loved the use of circles and the soft feel of her work.  I decided to make a layout using a photo of our daughter.  We adopted her from China and the photo is from the time while we were in the US....her in China. 
Layout made by Stacy at Scrap with Stacy (with a little help from her dd in the photo)

As you can tell I used the same basic layout but did change a few things.  I used a ton of flowers from my stash.  I am laughing because I just realized that my daughter added that pink flower bling to the middle of the center circle.  I guess she didn't think I was quite finished!! LOL  She is 4 years old now and really into bling.  She told me multiple times today that she loved my paper (meaning she loves my layout).  I'm glad she likes it since it is for her book. 

I hope you are inspired to join in on this challenge and I hope you pop over and check out all the great projects that Denise has on her blog.  You won't be sorry you did!!

Until next time...happy scrapping!!!

  1. what a noble action you made, adopting her. This is surely the most beautiful thing in all the matter. Your Lo is gorgeous, and full of love, and even the original subject is completely different from yours, the scraplift is good, there is a similarity between the two works.
