Layout of "The Gap"

Here is the layout I did last night of my son's "gap" after he lost his top teeth. The smile was so cute for several months but the teeth are coming in now. Great BIG middle teeth!! Sigh, poor kid is apparently taking after his mom. We'll be in braces together.

Some Stampin' Up layouts

Well, I keep doing cards with my Stampin' Up supplies but truly, I am a layout girl at heart (don't get me wrong, I LOVE cards but...)

So here are two layouts I did last night using almost exclusively SU stuff.

The "Five" layout uses the Sunshine Garden designer pp and Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point Blue cardstock. The fives are all random chipboard that I had and the title is MM puffy alphas.

The "Swimming" layout uses the *NEW* The Write Stuff designer paper for the yellow grid background and the (wow) die cut journalling spots. It comes with three sheets of die cuts!!! LOVE THAT... let me say that again, I LOVE THAT!!! The brads are from the Stylized Silver Hodgepodge Hardware and the border and mat are Baja Blue and the title is MM Noteworthy Flocked letters.

A layout to give away and one for me

Another challenge over at Lil Scrappers was to create a layout for someone else. I did that this weekend and created this dlb lo for my brother of his grad this May. He got his Bac. of Education and it was a LONG haul.

The 2nd layout is a single for our family book of the event (one for me!)
(I used the SU circle brads for the embellishments - they are STURDY brads!!)

Layouts without journalling

This was one of the June challenges over at Lil Scrappers and it was a very, very hard one for me. I always have lots to write on my pages and trying to just let the picture tell the story alone was hard. But I think I did a pretty good job in chosing especially the first one.

(I used the fabulous SU corduroy brads for the corners on each layout. I just love these to death!!)
