Pages pages

I am in the thick of grading now, so I've been stockpiling photos of my layouts to share. I do so now:

I used the Sketchy Thursdays sketch for this--I got the idea for it cleaning old photos off my board at school. Looking at them gave me the idea to stretch the sketch and make a two pager. and the product is from Studio Calico's March kit, mostly.

Now, if you have seen this layout on twopeas, you know how I feel about Valentine's Day scrapping product (it's just one day!). Still, I got some of the beautiful My Mind's Eye V-Day product free with my returned published layout from Scrapbook Trends. I LOVE it when themed stuff has a non-themed back, so I mixed it up a little to scrap a little story about love in the first grade.
This layout, with an ugly picture of me in about 6th grade, has some hidden journaling about how my brother and I are distanced.

This page was a lark. I have a few sewing themed products from past Studio Calico kits. I decided to pull them together for a layout about one of my favorite shows. "Cause they sure weren't going on a layout about how much I love sewing.

This one I love. I am putting together an entry for the Jillibean Soup DT call. I loved pulling together some bright colors that still looked autumny.

I love how you line up your photos. You're always an inspiration to me for great boy pages :).

I was wondering if you were as burnt out as I am but clearly not! These are all lovely.
What's the ruled paper with the scalloped edge in the "distance" layout?
Love the last one; it's not as linear as you usually do, and it conveys lots of movement. I hope you get the spot!
