Happy May Blog Hop Day!!

Hello Again Bombshell Lovers!!
Can you believe it's the end of May already??
Here in England we've had a mixed bag of weather, in fact we have a saying about the weather  in May:

Ne'er cast a clout till May be out!

...which essentially means keep your coat nearby until the end of May as the weather can change so quickly and we've certainly had strange weather this month. The month started off with drought warnings THEN we had two weeks of heavy rains and this week we are all roasting! I know that 27 degrees probably seems lame to many of you  but it's HOT HOT HOT for us Limeys!!

We have a lot of traditions in England associated with May and lots of festivals as it signals the start of the better weather, people are out and about more and want to party. With this in Mind Alison our Blog Hop Captain has chosen May Celebrations as our theme:

Wanna know what the theme is? It's May Celebrations! May has lots of fun, interesting, and sometimes bizarre holidays. So the challenge is to pick one of these holidays, and make a project out of it. Here's a link that will give you lots of ideas. http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/may.htm
 ~You have a look at that website because there are some WEIRD and wonderful celebrations listed- I particularly loved Lumpy Rug Day!!

So here's my project:

This is SO Fabulous! (as always). I love the colors and, of course, all the dimension/layering! Just want you to know..."No Sock Day" is something I've adopted as a way of life. Aaaaah.

Kathi said...

Totally fabulous. I love how you colored the Geisha and her parasol.
