Emergency Room

Paper Kit: Pineapple Plantation Designs

David masters the Gate

I'm going to try and go with simpler layouts for awhile. It looks a bit cleaner, focuses on the pictures more, and doesn't take me 20 hours to finish. Maybe I'll even finish my 2007 pictures by the end of the year.

Wedding Album Page 1

So since the only pictures I can access right now are the ones Julie's dad gave me, I guess I'll start a new wedding album! I'll be using the same paper kit throughout the album, which is:

Asleep on Beebo

If you're wondering, "Beebo" is the nephews' (started by Jeff's boy Andrew) nickname for Joey. Don't ask me why.

2 Little Monkeys

WOW, I have been BUSY today! I love these pics and this kit, but the layout looks a bit unbalanced to me. Any suggestions?

Wow, I've been really prolific today! (Comes from not having any semblance of plans other than my brother's kids' being over, which in turn inspired me to finally get the cousins page done).

Layout is based on a layout I saw online and goshdarnit, I can't for the life of me find the link! I'll keep looking.

Stevie's 3rd Birthday Party

I absolutely LOVED this kit. I got it by subscribing to the Scrapbooks Gone Digital newsletter. It is a HUGE kit and I hope to get some more use out of it. Again, I've tried to control myself with the elements and I've added the inside of Stevie's invitation as well for a personal touch. I think I'm going to try for cleaner, straighter lines for awhile, I like the way it looks so tidy.

AMC 5000

This layout has been designed with the following adage in mind: "Less is More". I've discovered that I become overly excited about the besquillions of elements and papers in each kit, and end up trying to fit them all in. In this layout, I've tried to contain myself.

New York Carnegie Hall

This is another one of those zillion photo templates by Yin of Yin. I scanned in parts of the program from the concert to give it some history. It's not hard to make a layout look good when all it is is pictures and memorabilia!

In the Bluebonnets

I nicked this idea from Bonnie's website, and I didn't change the template AT ALL! I just used it as a quickpage, but loved the way it looks so I thought I'd post it anyway. As for the bluebonnet elements, I just found and image I liked off 'Google' and erased the background. Worked like a charm!

In a Box

I love this template, but I think I might use another one afterwhile, just because I love these pictures and I think I might want them a bit bigger in the layout. Anyways...

Laugh and Love As Much

I got really emotional while doing this page. It finally turned out the way I wanted. I used Bonnie's new and absolutely wonderful "Spunky Girl" kit (and as I have no little spunky girls of my own --as of yet-- I thought I would scrap something close to my heart.)

On the Ferry

Here's a another little doodle. Not exactly how I pictured it, however I've GOT to stop spending a thousand hours on each page or I'll never get caught up.

At the Beach

I absolutely cheated on this one. This is supposed to be a template from Mandagirl, but I ended up just using it as a quick page. I didn't change a darn thing. I guess I could have used some cute papers, but what can I say? I have a trillion pictures and this one was just a perfect fit. If you want to snag it, go check out Mandagirl's blog (a very cool one). The pages she did using this template are very cute.
