Hello and Happy May! I'm Aimeslee, and I have the honor of being your host this month. I'm a lifelong creative with an eclectic style and curiosity. I'm currently into cardmaking, art journaling and home decor art. I live on the upper Texas Gulf Coast near Houston, and I am married with a grown daughter. My blog is Paper-Paisleys Art Adventures, and you are always welcome there.

While Fall is my favorite season because it lasts quite a while down here, I also love Spring even though usually we blink, and it's gone into Summer.It's been a splendid real Spring this year, so I've been enjoying every day of it. One thing I dearly love about both seasons are the many flowers that bloom, so I have chosen FLOWERS as our theme for May.

I made this page with an old poem in mind. When I was in grade school, we girls would recite poems as we jumped rope. One of the poems had these lines:
"March winds blow / April rains flow / And May flowers grow." This is certainly turning out to be true where I live this year, so I made my page to remember that all 3 Spring months each have a purpose in Nature. 

But please don't think you are limited to Spring flowers. ANY flowers are great. Every season has its own flowers, so feel free to use your favorites. If it blooms, it's perfect!

I am excited to see your flowery creations, whether they be realistic, whimsical or abstract. I hope you'll join us!

Please don't forget to check the dreaded rules.  NO cards unless part of your journal page.
