This is a layout I created using a stash kit I put together for May 2016. The photos are of my sweet grandee Shani.
I used a sketch from Pagemaps  May 2016 to get me started creating on this layout.

Here is a paper sack I had in my kit with a homemade tag, which is where I hid my journaling on.

You can see I also used lots of sequins and the hello is actually a die cut.

Here's the journaling.

Love those striped letters but they are chipboard so I had to add extra adhesive behind them!!

I did some stamping on this bit of 3x4 PP card then added some washi tape and some enamel dots. The arrows are die cut out of scraps.

That little copper circle border behind the photos is a border die that I cut out years ago.

I have 2 goodie bags to give away, both are filled with planner supplies that I have just cleaned out of my overly large supply of planner supplies. Leave only 1 comment here, one comment on the YT video and one comment at the UYS Challenge Blog to be qualified to win one of them...Good Luck!!

Here's a link to the process video I created, yes...I do know that it's title's are upside down and all messed up, I'm really just learning to make narrated process videos. So please be understanding.

I think I fixed the video link.

WOW, such a cute layout and I love the hidden journal tag!

Thanks for the chance to win!

I love all the sequins and the colors on the patterned paper! I just became a new follower. I tried to watch the YouTube video, but it's blocked, "this video is private" is all I saw.
