Hi there! Betsyfru here, just a day late, but not a dollar sorry, as they say. LOL! Sorry I'm late, I totally forgot I'd signed up for this.

So, your first VP challenge for May is a Recipe Challenge, my favorite! You must include these items in your layout:
3 photos
4 solid papers
3 patterned papers
even number of leaves
odd number of flowers (but more than the number of leaves)
a curly ribbon or a wiggly string
a bow
at least 2 buttons
stitching
a BIG-ish TITLE
some journaling somewhere on your layout, including the date

You may use more than the listed items, but your layout must include AT LEAST all the items in the recipe. Have fun and create a gorgeous page!

Here's my layout:

"Here are the requirements that must be met for all PDW Challenges to receive points:
1. To receive points you must use at least one item from a Plain Digital Wrapper Designer - You can use retired PDW products, freebies, and store collabs. BUT the designers have to be still active (except in the case of collabs)
2. Be a new layout created for this challenge.
3. Be only entered in 1 challenge category.
4. Upload your layout to the Variety Pack Challenge Gallery and post the link and photo in this thread.
5. Please update your thread by the end of the month to assure the points are counted on time.
You will receive one Wrapper for completing the challenge and a Bonus Wrapper for using ALL PDW products if you keep track in the It's a Wrap Thread!!
Those add up quickly-and 20 points will get you a $5 gift certificate to the PDW store!"

Here again I'm not a big fan of a bunch of stuff on a layout. It makes it way too busy & takes away from the photos & journaling. With that said here is my take on the challenge.

This is so pretty! And where can you swim in a waterfall in December???
Hi Betsyfru,
Here in Brazil, summer is when you have winter and so on... Therefore we had the perfect weather for swimming in December. ;)
