Layouts from the head

I actually have a couple layouts that are somewhat original designs. This one is from a Build a Bear party. The pictures from Build a Bear are always so yellow, so I had a hard time scrapping this one. I saw someone else had used this teal patterned paper and I knew that is what I wanted too. On the left page where he is stepping on the pedal, it opens up to show two more pictures. I made a loop of bakers twine and made my own paper bead as the opener. I wasn't at home when I did this layout so I needed to make due with what I had. I don't think I have even made a paper bead for a layout before. Good to stretch the brain. :0)

The patterned paper was the deciding factor on this page. The dots are glittery and I thought it was a perfect jacuzzi paper for my pictures. Then I outlined my title with a glittery pen to add a little bit more. Who says you can't have glittery on a boy page.

More purchased kits

I purchased this layout online. It uses Bo Bunny paper. This was a fun layout to do. I tore, stitched, inked, curled, and tucked away. So much going on here.
Great paper to showcase the few of millions of faces my nephew makes. These are all posed pictures too. He is so funny. When I tell him that, he says "I was born that way"

This is a layout kit I purchased from 2KatieDesigns. It was originally a FAIR layout but I thought it was great for the Cave Springs Day pictures I had. I had to make this a four page layout. Too many activities for two pages.

Layout Kits

This layout is one I did at CKC Tulsa 2010. It is such a simple design but I really love it and the patterned paper used.

I purchased this layout already put together. I just needed to put pictures on it. I don't normally do that but I just loved the simple layout of this one and it worked good with these 1st birthday pictures.

Layout Inspired from Store Display

This layout was inspired by a display in a closing scrapbook store. This is not my normal colors but I really like it. It is pictures of our last trip to CKC in Tulsa. What I did on this page that I don't always think of doing is where the circles are. The circles are from a patterned paper of circles. I just cut at the edge of one of the rows. Simple but easy to forget.
