Grid designs {Cosmo Cricket: DeLovely}

I saw this layout: on Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine (Monday's challenge) and I just loved the grid design. I have been dying to use the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper so I broke it out for this. I also used this layout for the September CC challenge at Scrapbook.com. This month's challenge was to use 2 or more lines of CC paper. Most of mine is DeLovely, but the sweet pea embellies, pear and yellow chipboard flower are from Garden Variety & Early Bird. I have to be honest....DeLovely was the only line I own that didn't flow really well with all of the others! It truly was a challenge for me ;)
And then I had this bright idea that when I like a sketch/design and I'm using a picture of only one of the girls, I should make another layout for the other one! Two layouts, one design...but totally different looks. Loved it!
This is using the same retired Stampin' Up! paper from my last post....

I love these little Scrabble letters and was so excited when I realized I had the right letters for her name! I'm really getting down to the end of those letters though :( Does anyone else use the same design for multiple layouts at one time? Any other tricks you can think of like this?
