May Challenge

Our May challenge is a picture inspiration with a bit of history.

The following is taken from part of the report here

In medieval times, May Day was often celebrated by young men and women dancing on the village green around a specially-decorated tree called a maypole.

The branches of a slender tree were cut off, coloured ribbons tied to the top and the revellers held on to the ends of the ribbons and danced. Some villages still carry on the tradition today.

Before the dancing began there was also a procession led by a woman appointed May Queen for the day. Sometimes she was accompanied by a May King, who dressed in green to symbolise springtime and fertility.

Your challenge this month is to use this picture for your inspiration

Here is what the Design Team did:


We also have a guest designer this month who I will feature in a later post.

You have until midnight GMT on 31st May to enter the challenge. Again I am donating a small RAK for a randomly drawn winner. To enter please click the inlinkz button and follow the instructions.
