Girl Time

I wanted to add this layout to my blog. Some days it is all I can do, when I look at my daughter, to not get tears in my eyes. She is growing up so fast. Not that I don't want her to grow up, just that it is going by so fast. The layout itself was fun to do with all the stitching, and then gathering embellishments to match the colors. I do love colors!!

Every Morning

I love this layout - in fact, it might be my favorite layout ever...well ok, until the next one I do. (The last one I complete is always my favorite...) But, I just love the colors on this one, and the picture. I took the picture on the way down to FL, and I didn't retouch it in ANY way...I just love it. It is my first layout done with a BackPorch Memories page kit - I just added a few things from my own stash. And the inspiration was Becky Fleck's latest PageMaps sketch challenge. Aww...I just love the feeling of a completed layout...until tomorrow, when that desire to do another one hits!!

Manly layout

OK - I have to do one now & then (a manly layout, that is...), just to keep my man happy & feeling loved. So, I used a Becky Fleck Pagemap sketch to get me going. These were the only pictures I have of Adam turning 45, and his shirt was bright purple, so I turned the pictures black & white to make them more versatile. Boy, I am glad I did...with all that pattern going on, that would have made it worse. But here it is...happy late birthday, honey!!
