Hello friends!!! It's Meridy here, welcome to our "Picnic in the Park" Online Crop. Today is the first day of the crop and I have your very first challenge ready for you...
I think one of the most fun things to do during a picnic in the park is to fly a kite!!! Keeping a kite in mind, I decided today's challenge is to use diamond(s), ribbon, and bow(s) on your layout. Below is my layout for the "Fly a Kite" challenge. I used the Noel Mignon May 2016 "Pure Bliss" Classic Kit.

I cut a few diamonds from the Basic Grey patterned paper in the kit and used them as a repeating element across the back of my layout. You can see how the diamonds sometimes fall off the edge of the page. I feel like this helps your eye move around the design and keeps the layout from looking too confined and cluttered.
As you can see I grounded my photo with the coral ribbon in this month's kit, gathering it as I adhered it. Instead of using a real bow, I used the bow paperclip that came in the kit!
A couple of other small embellishment clusters on the edges of the photo keep that photograph the focal point of the layout.
Everyone who finishes this challenge will be entered in a drawing for these cute Elle's Studio products.
To recap today's "Fly a Kite" challenge, use diamond(s), ribbon, and bow(s) on your layout. Please upload your finished page to our Noel Mignon Members Facebook page in the "Fly a Kite" challenge album. Also, keep in mind you do not have to use a Noel Mignon kit to enter your layout, everyone can play!!!
Check in tomorrow to see our next challenge and great prize. We will have a challenge each day this week (Monday-Friday) and all of the winners will be announced on National Scrapbook Day--Saturday, May 7, 2016. Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create!
