New Layouts

Lots of new Layouts I made today. This one was inspired by a sketch from Amanda Winchester who is on the Design Team at Treasured Scrapbooking. The baby is my nephew's first born. His name is Daniel but everyone calls him Dani. He is so precious and everyone just adores him. The top picture is of him and his mother and the bottom picture is of him and his grandfather (my brother-in-law).

This layout was inspired from a sketch by Valerie Semon with Got Sketch 2008. It is for our June Sketch Challenge at Pages In Time. My aunt Macuka is the lady in the far right of the picture with her daughter and son-in-law and their two children. The birdie is from Your Memories by Design. I wanted to use the bird because I call her "Cuka Ruka Koo" and that is the term used for the noise that the Toucan bird makes. It's also a famous song by one of my favorite Mexican singers, Juan Gabriel. I sing the song everytime I see her and it always puts a smile on her face.

Sketch was Pencil Lines #137. I know I'm really late in making it but I didn't care because I really liked the sketch. Design Team member Anna designed the sketch. Instead of using a journal box, I just used the printed lines from the background Cloe's Closet patterned paper. Primos is spanish for cousins. I liked the look of the rub-on scalloped border as well as the rub-on chandelier from Making Memories. And, of course it's always nice to use up the button stash.

I just love this new Jenni Bowlin cherry paper. I received it and the journal tag from my Pages In Time Design Team kit. I kept this layout simple and my neighbor thinks I need to add more to the negative space in the patterned paper blocks on top and bottom but I told her I wanted to keep this one simple. The picture really spoke to me and I wanted to keep it the main focal point of the layout. I love those cursive Thickers and I thought the stitching kept it neat and linear. She thinks this one is really plain compared to most of my other layouts but she's not a scrapper so what does she

I have a couple of more new layouts but don't have the information on them yet so I will post them later.

I'm feeling much better and have a doctor's appointment tomorrow so I will have an update on my health later. I feel much better so thanks again for all your prayers.

Happy Scrappin' and don't forget to join us Saturday for the Summer Mini-Crop at Pages In Time!!
