May Arts/DCWV Challenge

I was oh-so-lucky to get to play along with this past month's May Arts/DCWV challenge! I normally try to participate in the May Arts challenge, but this one was extra special because not only did I get to play with specific ribbons, but I was also given some pretty papers to play with too!

Each participant got half a stack of the "Snapshot" stack from DCWV. I LOOOOVE this stack! The colors are so beautiful and there are so many possibilities with this stack!

We also got to choose 4 of the ribbons to play with. I chose all but the jute. I have a ton of jute and the others stood out a little more to me. 

See... I told you the colors were beautiful! 

I started out with this pan/baking sheet. I'm not really sure what it is, but I spotted it at a thrift store for $2 and thought it would make an awesome magnet board! Plus, I thought the handles were cool to tie ribbon to!

Here's my finished product... don't worry, I have lots of close ups to show as well! 

When I saw this sheet of paper I thought it would make a PERFECT little notepad!


So I cut it up and tied it together and viola! A little notepad on my magnetic memo board! 

The little rosettes have magnets on the back, so they can be used to hold little notes. 

Originally, I wanted to make a banner for my project, but later changed my mind. The little Polaroids really stood out to me as something that would make a cute banner, so I decided to incorporate them in! Plus, I wanted to showcase a couple of my black & white photos as well and use it as a home decor piece in my bedroom. 

I also scored a bag of clothes pins at the thrift store for .50 cents. There's nothing that a little Glimmer Mist can't spruce up! 

There you have it! My May Arts/DCWV challenge project! I am loving how it turned out and I'm very excited to hang it on my wall! The colors match my room perfectly and this project is multi-functional! It's a home decor piece and a magnetic memo board all in one! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you stop by the May Arts Blog and check out all of the other fabulous entries for the challenge!
