Just wanted to share 2 more layouts before the month is over! 

This layout "TWEEN" is for a challenge over at Scrap-Friendzy.  Hosted by Kerys Sharrock, I created this layout using paper from a 6x6 paper pad from Authentique.  

This layout "I Think You're Amazing" is for a challenge over at Creative Scrappers.  It is sketch#210 and I used EP's This & That Collection.

Thank you for stopping by and came back on Friday for June's Bonus Challenge!

Happy Scrappin'!
