Three More

I finished three 2-page layouts today, but I'll hold off posting those for now.

These three layouts I started at Mania, then finished at home. Here's the first:

This is a very typical design for me: A photo next to journaling, with patterned paper above and below. Why reinvent the wheel, I say. If a design works, use it again. And regarding the topic of this layout, Dominic has been persisting much better, though he still gets discouraged.

The next layout was about a fun day we had when Derick was at GenCon (sorry, hon):

I did some more of the clustering that I like. And when I was done, I felt like the design needed a little more definition, so I stitched. My cross-stitching (or in this case, backstitching) skills coming in handy.

The last one is my favorite (and Rowan's too--he thought the picture was cool):
This is another 8x12 photo I didn't use for the Big Picture Scrapbooking Class. I loved the white space on the photo, so I clustered my title and journaling there.And I did stamp on the photo with Stazon--it wasn't an even stamp, but I like how it looks distressed.

I really like how you incorporated "girl" paper on your going LO. Very creative.
