It's Friday!

There are so many challenge blogs out there, I'm having a fun time participating in them all. Found out about another called The Goodie Box. Wedding season is upon us and the challenge this time around was to do a layout using something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. You could do all 4 or a combination of them. Here's the layout I did.

Something old: Old scraps of patterned paper
Something New: New Prima Flowers and colorbok chipboard
Something borrowed: The general design is borrowed from Babs. She has a layout posted on ScrapinStyle that uses this design.
Something blue: There's various splashes of blue in the paper and in the picture

Lately I've been drawn toward the 8.5x11 format, so I thought I would start doing some pages in that size. I'm not sure what's on Natalie's forehead. I think I got a glare when I took a pic of the layout.

And then this last one is using the 4x8 picture I ordered. I haven't done a 2 page layout in a long time. May have to try to get back to more 2 pagers.

Summer is just around the corner, but it feels like it's here already! Some great sunshiney, hot weather is forecasted for the holiday weekend. Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day.

The faces they make when they are trying out the food are so funny.

Those are great layouts! I love the Be Happy one. Great idea for the 2 pics turned opposite ways.

What cute LO's. Natalie is such a little cutie.

You are really good at doing those challenges. It all seems like so much pressure to me...makes me nervous.

My first albums are of 8.5x11 and I loved it. I'm working on a sports album for Jayla and it's 11x8.5. Believe it or not, THAT was more difficult. And I always do 2 pagers...seems to make the album flow better.

Keep up the good work.

We just bought Elizabeth that exact same excersaucer. So far, she likes it. Great layouts. How many different albums do you have going on?? 12X12 AND 8/5X11? You go girl!
I could count on one hand how many times I've done a single layout vs. a 2 pager. I'm just a double layout kind of gal!

Love those faces! I used to do two page layouts exclusively...lately though I've really been into doing only one page. It's quicker for me and that's something I really need.

Love the layout of Natalie and her dad. It's such a tender moment. Great idea about the something borrowed... I might have to try myself.
