Scrapbook Layouts

I just LOVE owls and despite these pictures not being that great I had to scrap them! And I feel that if the pictures are important to you and your story then they should be scrapped regardless of quality. :) Like the journaling says, I become a little kid and could watch these owls all day!! These photos were taken at a local wildlife center.

I used the most recent Sketchy Thursday sketch despite the layout taking on a life of it own!! I choose to angle my photos to coordinate with the birds and their movement. And, if you are wondering, my color scheme is neutral for another challenge on Its a challenge hosted by my scrapper friend, Pat, and she picks 4 Monochromatic color schemes to challenge us.

I also matted the photos using a matted scallop paper and doodled two borders around them. I also did two clusters of embellies. I used Cricut Accent Essentials to make the vines. I also added flowers at the centers of the vines and 'sprinkled' some buttons.

The second layout is of my sister and son during August. After a fabulous underground tour of our local town we went to eat at the restaurant she works out. We were able to have her serve us and loved all over my son!

I made the flowers with Accent Essentials and layered the flowers. For the large flower the bottom layer is shadowed and then filled in with bling. The title die cut also has bling pearls around it. I used a Page Map for this one.

This last layout I had so much putting together! It is of my son and him cooling off during a walk on a hot September day. He loved dipping his toes and splashing all around.

I used a Nuts about Sketches sketch. I made a border of circles using 1.5" and 2" punches along with 1/2" die cut circles. For the smallest circles I added some rain dots.
