July Planner Layouts

I hate to say that I'm so behind in my Planner Scrapbooking but I am, I just finished July.  I accidentally printed all my photos too small to go into the pocket pages so instead I used the full page sheet protectors and mad 6x8 layouts and i think they turned out really good!
