      Ahhhhh, May!!!! Spring is here at last!!!!
      Warmer (and longer days), picnic suppers, the smell of newly mowed lawns, and gardens full of flowers are things that we all enjoy.
      It’s also the month when we celebrate Mother’s Day in so many countries. (I just learned that it’s celebrated during Lent in the UK, but I’m going to ask you to join the rest of us – maybe you’d like a second holiday.)
      So the May 2015 SGC Challenge theme is “Mother”, but you can scrap this any way you choose, whether it be your mother, the mother of your grandchildren, YOU as a mother, you get the idea!!!
      Did I mention flowers? Yes, I believe I mentioned flowers. The twist to my challenge is that you take some of those packages that you’ve been hoarding for a year or more, grit your teeth, open them up and use them to adorn your layout.
      Although I’d love to see you use your Swirlydoos kits, this challenge is open to all Swirly Savages. You may use whatever you have on hand.
      I’m pushing the deadline for this into June because I’ll be out of town <grin> during the last week of May. All entries that are posted here AND in the Swirlydoos Gallery https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1582214668683264&type=1 by Wednesday, June 3 will qualify for a prize of $25.00 to spend in the Swirly Boutique.

      This is my paternal grandmother, taken sometime in the early 1930’s.
      I’ve used the April kit for everything EXCEPT the flowers; as per the twist they are from my stash – Prima flowers that I’ve been hoarding for far too long.
