May Winners

Hello again and happy Saturday!  This is Elizabeth and I am back to announce some more winners - this time for our regular challenges in the month of May.  Before I do I want to remind you to check out SEM's Chit Chat Facebook Group  for some scrapping fun!  We would love to have you!  Grab a cup of (iced) tea or coffee and join us for some girl time.  We would love for you to share your layouts or links to your blog posts, interact with us about the latest scrapbooking tips, techniques and trends, or just bless us with your company.  We look forward to getting to know you better!

THANK YOU to each and everyone of you who participated in our May challenges!  We know May is a difficult month in many households with school coming to an end.  Our challenges really were that this past month - a challenge.  Many of you expressed the difficulty in scrapping about your mothers, including some from our own design team.  However, your pages were stunning, straight from the heart.  Thank you for participating in something that was very hard.  Your efforts resulted in some truly beautiful pieces of artwork.    

I put all the entries into  and the winner is . . .Susan S.!   Congratulations Susan!!  Please send us an e-mail at to claim the Seals, Tags and Stuff gift certificate for $15 to their Etsy Shop (!

And now it's time to announce our Top 3 choices from the May Challenge #16! Like I said before your pages were simply gorgeous!  Thank you for participating in the challenge and don't forget about the scrap twist we always throw in :) 
(Note: The Top 3 are only chosen from the Main Challenge...)

1.  Lorilee
The Design Team thought Lorilee's page was beautiful not only because of the artistic elements and music sheet she added but because of the story about her Mama - coming straight from the heart! 

2. Caroline (aka Shosh)
Caroline's page of three generations included a precious photo and book page :) 

   3.   Scrapping Myra 
Myra's story about how her mom's recent hospitalization helped her realize just how blessed she is to have her was beautifully captured in her page

Congrats ladies . . . and thank you for inspiring us!!!  If you were one of our top three you are welcome to take the top 3 badge from our sidebar and display it proudly on your blog!   Many thanks everyone everyone for playing along!  We enjoy visiting your blogs or on-line photo albums and seeing all the talent you have been given!  We look forward to seeing your entries for the June Challenge #17  and June's sketch challenge.

Our Guest Designer for July will be Svetlana Austin! Congrats on being chosen as our GD Svetlana . . . we can't wait to see your take on the challenges and the inspiration you have to share!!    
(Guest Designers are chosen from those that participate in challenges and/or participate in SEM Chit Chat Group on Facebook )

Have a wonderful weekend dear friends and may God's blessings be evident to you in your everyday miracles :)
