Lots of Layouts

I have been very busy these past few weeks. Of our two kits for the book club this month, one was the supplies to complete 2 two page layouts. This one ended up not being exactly like the book because I couldn't get the paper to sand correctly. If you distress the paper, brown should have shown through. I couldn't get it to work right and it just looked horrible. I'm pretty excited with how it turned out.

Yes, that's my helper in the background. I was taking pictures with the front door open and she couldn't resist the beautiful weather we are having today!

This months kit was about using stickers. So the lace paper is actually stickers, as are most of the embellishments on these layouts. I made this layout by copying two single page layouts. I really like that I wrote a letter to my first daughter. I normally don't do that much journaling but I'm glad that I did for this layout and plan to write more letters to both girls.

{My pictures of the pages aren't great but I was working on limited time between both girls' naps and keeping the cat indoors!}

This is my favorite layout this month. Mainly because I love the pictures! The papers are wonderful, too, but you can't see much of the detail in these pictures. The ribbon is part of what I won from a blog contest :)

I'm also proud of myself for finishing 3 pages in the baby's album. The first page is her birth announcement (going out today so I didn't want to spoil it for those getting it) and then I completed her first month's layout.

The second kit for the book club is a project for a school age child. I thought about not making it until I had a school aged kid but I'm glad I went ahead and put this together...

Because I really like the "pop-ups". This is something I can incorporate into other projects that I make. A little scoring and cutting a circle is all that you have to do to. Can't wait to use it on something else.

Thanks for looking!

I've seen this pic of Lexus several times now and it catches my attention every time. I love it. Rarely do I get to see her come out of hiding - her true self!

Your layouts are beautiful! You do a great job. :) I love the little pop-up book.
