Two More Layouts

Yeah, I know. Orignal title. are two more older layouts to share while I work on organizing my scrapbook room. I am going to try something I read today..." Don't keep it if it's not useful, beautiful, or joyful. " We'll see how it goes.

I may have shared this first one before, but it's one of my favorites because of the subject and the colors. :) Makes me smile!

I did this second about two years ago. My baby will be 7 in just over a week! Time really does fly!

Two layouts

Since I haven't had much time (or haven't used it wisely) to do anything new, I thought I'd just share a couple of layouts I did a while ago. I love this first one not only because of the precious photo, but also because of the texture on the layout. The journaling is a copy of the lyrics from Steven Curtis Chapman's song, "Fingerprints of God."

Although the photos on this are old (Jonathan hasn't done Cub Scouts in ages), the layout isn't. This is a go to design when you are in a creative rut. Just tear some paper, baby!

More Scrapbooking Deals

Just wanted to let you know that some Tuesday Morning locations have awesome packs of American Crafts patterned paper, specifically (at least at the Augusta location), the Celebration line for a GREAT price.

Also, you HAVE to check out this site if you've never seen it. I first ran across it when Ali Edwards mentioned it on her blog. It's called Peachy Cheap, and they have once a day deals on scrapbooking stuff. Today's special is a collection of cute products by Cosmo Cricut for just $5.99 + S&H.

A couple of weeks ago, I got 8 packs of American Crafts Thickers for just 20 bucks (including shipping). Go see it! NOW!

A couple of layout shares

Here are a couple of more layouts I 've wanted to share. The first one I finished at last week's crop, (except for a missing question mark), and the other was a gift to me.
Although not perfectly designed, I like this layout because I pulled out my stamping supplies (the owls, inks, and journaling box). The photo of the "photo," however, turned out a little dark....sorry.
This next layout was done by Celeste Guerrero, Crystal Rodriguez, and Mary Catherine Young.....and I just love it! It is sooooo meaningful. I'm thinking of framing it and hanging it in my scrapbook room. It was a thank you gift for organizing the church crops. Wasn't that sweet? I love the colors and the dry embossing on this layout. And the picture of me turned out pretty good! Thanks, Crystal.
Makes me want to do more scrapbook pages as gifts!
