This month Berry71bleu is collaborating with Once Upon A Sketch.
To enter this month's Berry71bleu challenge you must use the sketch provided by OUAS and incorporate numbers anywhere on your project.  In addition, you need to use chipboard on your project which is Berry71bleu's part of the challenge. Here is my layout for the May Challenge at Berry71bleu, a layout of my sister celebrating her 50th birthday.

The DT was provided with papers from Lucky 7 Factory, our main sponsor this month.  We all worked with their Technologie Collection which is part of our main prize.  We were also fortunate to work with chipboard provided to us by Scrap FX.

Here are a few closeups:

And here is the lovely sketch I worked with from OUAS:

We have lots of prizes up for grab this month so the rest of this post is going to be a long one, but well worth it!
Main prize for May: Lucky7 Factory
The Lucky7 Factory is a young company in Quebec, Canada. It all started around a table practicing our favorite hobby, scrapbooking. Our friendship circle then added another string to its bow; by becoming business women.

For 3 years now, we offer collections that include double-sided papers and handmade ornaments. We are now in our seventh collection (Technology). With the latter, we offer handmade flowers, buttons and alphabets stickers. Together, they are perfectly coordinated.

Our goal is to create a quality product while respecting our beautiful planet. That is why our paper is 100% recyclable. It is thick enough to make cards and is the perfect support for mix-media techniques. It is quite versatile. The handmade ornaments are made with lots of love and care. To ensure customer satisfaction, we try to surpass ourselves with each new collection.

In addition, via our blog, we love sharing tips and tricks to create while recycling everyday objects. Twice per month, we create challenges that help motivate or get you out of your comfort zone.  It is also a great way to get to know each member of our Design Team (DT) and follow the evolution of the company.

Through this adventure, we love talking to our customers and share our passion with them.  These moments are always filled with small joys and madness. This represents us very well!

Come discover us by visiting our blog, our Facebook page and Pinterest.
