A few layouts for you to see

This month was my turn as a Guest Designer for the Scrapdango Kit Club. I was lucky enough to pick between the Sugar and Spice kits and I took this one (Spice) featuring College Press:It was totally a blast to work with... the colors were perfect for fall and easy to mix with each other or other product already in my stash. I easily completed 3 layouts and 2 cards. I have a ton more product to use so I am looking forward to scrapping some more layouts. Here's the ones I did for the DT:

This first layout was done for my BFF Tracy of her boys. I regularly ask for her pictures because I love to scrap boy layouts too... This one was fun because there was a lot of doodling and layering - my signature style, eh?
This layout was done using the proofs from our Church directory pictures. I didn't end up using all of them (I saved the best ones for frames/family) but I do love these pictures and the content behind the layout. The picture in the directory is the one of us together where she is leaning on my shoulder. Originally, I was going to go with a green background but pulling the same pink as her dress really made the layout pop! It took a long time to cut all those flowers out of the background paper and doodle them but I love how it came out.
The journaling reads:
I am grateful that you aren’t afraid to get dirty. I am grateful that you are energetic. I am grateful for the creativity you express. I am grateful that you are very curious about the world. I am grateful that you are caring and kind to others. I am grateful that you like to be a good friend. I am grateful that you really love to learn new things. I am grateful that you find joy in a reading a book. I am grateful that you are healthy, happy girl. I am grateful that you are strong and independent. I am grateful that you are comfortable playing with boys or girls. I am grateful that you feel free to express your love. I am grateful that I am learning to be a better parent. Even though there might be days where we drive each other bonkers, always know… I love you… I am grateful for the joy you bring into my life… I am grateful that we have been chosen to be your parents.

Then, just to throw me out of my comfort zone, Carrie wanted some cards so... here is my humble attempts. (I am not a card maker normally but I do love these ones... the one on the right used my interpretation of the card sketch from CC for this month)
Here is my layout for the Pink Sketches team this week:
This weekend, I went to the CSI (Crop Scene Incident) event at the Zone. It was tons of fun - not so much because there were 4 free make-n-takes, but because I got to crop ALL day with my BFF Tracy and my fellow DT member Stacy. We had such a blast!!! I'll post the layouts later this week. :)
While the women were scrapbooking, Annde and Steve ended up at the circus with Tracy's hubby and boys. She has not stopped talking about it! We (on the great suggestion of Tracy) gave the kid each a disposable camera and asked them to take pictures. I can't wait to see what they thought was important to take a picture of. I'll post those when I get them back from the developer.

Well, off for now! Have a great day!
