Loads of new Layouts!

I haven't updated in quite some time so I have loads of new work to share.

The first set of layouts all contain Christmas pictures from last year.
The first layout, spending TIME, was inspired by a Sketchabilities Sketch #8. I loved that sketch and thought these pics would work nicely with it.

The next three layouts were January Dango Reveal layouts. I loved the colors of the papers and all the clocks in the January kit!! I designed the sketch for the 2-pager during my down-time at work one night.







365 days was a fun layout designed without a sketch. I just started creating and this was the final product.

Padrinos was created for several forum challenges. I attempted to mask some scalloped circles by just inking around the shapes but it didn't come out quite the way I wanted so I just ended up smudging pink ink all around the background patterned paper to make it look more even.

I am still using the lace that I bought at a yard sale. 100 yards for 50 cents!!! Now that's a bargain :)

I journaled in Spanish so that my Spanish speaking family could read it and enjoy it better.

On BONITA navidad, I drew inspiration from the stems with leaves image on the patterned paper and made my own large stem of leaves on the left side of the page. A stitched stem and cut up paper flower petals along with buttons and small paper flowers made for a nice large embellishment. I used tiny gemstones for centers in the small paper flowers. The pictures are from my church in Mexico. I love seeing the Nativity scenes in all the churches and displays all around town. I couldn't wait to scrap my church's display.

GREEN {VELVET} is my very first layout containing an altered pic that I created using my new Photoshop Elements 8 software. I am still learning more about it but was happy to at least get this first pic created with partial coloring. I used loads of embellishments and even used a tag that was from a Christmas present under our tree last year ;)






girls just wanna have fun was inspired by a February PageMaps sketch. I love these fun and playful pictures that I took during a Christmas party last year and thought they would look great using this sketch. I chose loads of pinks and playful bling to give it a nice, whimsical look.





GROOVY kind of LOVE was created using ALL SCRAPS!!!! Gotta love it when you can dig into that OLD stash and use loads of oldies but goodies. More of the yard sale lace went on this one along with pearls and some very old die cut images.

Gotta run to work so Happy Hump Day!!!!
