Some More Recent 2 Page Layouts

I just wanted to share few layouts I have created over the past 2 weeks...

I used an Allison Davis Sketch from one of her Sketches for Scrapbooking books for this layout. 

I used some pieces that I made for a swap last year on this layout.  That is crepe paper (like party streamers) gathered under the photo mats.  Since I had all the "bits and pieces"  this layout came together SUPER QUICK!

I bought a stack at Michael's this spring just for these two pieces of paper.  (I liked lots of the other paper too, but these were my FAVORITES.)  I LOVE yellow, but don't get to scrap too much with it.  I was super excited to get to create this page.

My favorite part of creating this layout was adding the embellishment cluster on the left hand side.

This page has been "in progress" for probably 2 months...I just really needed to finish it up and put it away.  It's not one of my favorite layouts, but that's ok.  I think I just had it out looking at it for too long.  Definitely one of those "forced layouts"!

I liked the bright colors in these fun photos.  I don't scrap too much in bright primary colors, so it was a nice change of pace.  I used this layout as inspiration for the tags down the right side of this layout.

I just love this "old' paper.  I'm glad I finally USED it...I bought it when I went through the "I can't use this because the layout won't be good enough" phase.  I'm glad I got over that phase.  Now I use up "good" and "new" embellishments and papers without a second thought.  I would rather have them on a layout than stashed away "waiting" in my scrapbook room!  This is the inspiration layout I used.

This layout was created around the alphabet stamp across the bottom.  A friend of mine got it at a yard sale this summer.  I thought it was PERFECT for a first day of school page!  The journaling block is actually product packaging from Making Memories.

I thought this  bicycle paper was super cute!  Glad I found some photos to go with it!  I have also really been wanting to use a cloud embellishment, like the ones I have been seeing everywhere this summer.  So I was happy to cut it from the reverse side of one of the patterned papers!

This is the first layout I created with my Counterfeit Kit from September 2011.  Sadly I took these photos about 5 days before the LSS (pictured) announced they were going to be closing down.  That was about 3 weeks ago, and they are already gone.  I have been shopping there since the first year they opened, 11 years ago. The saddest part was that I just started bringing my daughter there for a weekly afternoon crop, for some quality mommy/daughter time.

And this is the second layout I created with my September 2011 Counterfeit Kit.  I really liked the color combination this month, I found that I have lots of photos to match.
 Thank you for looking!  I hope I left you with some 2-page inspiration :)
