Welcome to a new month here at the Lily Pad! It is May and along with the new challenge is a fun month starting off with iNSD weekend 5/3!!! Don''t miss out on all the fun! This month's template challenge at Kate Hadfield Designs, we are calling "Blocked". This is the time of year we start getting more active with fun activities - school fun (proms, graduations etc.) vacations/Holidays and the like, and this template will be perfect to scrap all of those events and more! Before jumping in with the new template, I want to announce the winner of Kate's April Blog template challenge "Mad about Circles". Thank you to everyone who joined in on the April template challenge. We really enjoyed seeing your beautiful circle pages! The winner chosen by Rafflecopter for the $15 gift card to Kate's Store for April is Angela (aka @Angela Toucan ) with her beautiful Daffodils page: Congratulations Angela!!! (@Angela Toucan Angela, please PM Kate here at the Lily Pad to claim your prize!!) Now on to May!!! Kate has another great template to play with. The template is called "Blocked" and is packed full of large blocks for different sized photos, for papers and it has a special round circle too... It is a great spot for title work, and/or an additional photo! Kate has been working on a really simple photobook project this year to get more pages scrapped, so while this is a bit different from her normal style, I know you will love it!!! However you decide to use the template, I hope you have fun with it! Here is the page I made with the template... I used some photos of when I went to Edinburgh, Scotland back in 2017.
