Little One Layout Kit

What a quick and fun layout (it took less than 15 minutes, I meant to set a timer, but I forgot), it is the Close To My Heart Little One Cut Above Layout Kit.  I wanted to record the process of putting this layout together so here is a link to my YouTube time lapse video.

Youth Conference Dance Festival Layout

I started out with the map paper from the Memo Fundamentals papers and I wasn't sure where I was going with it.  I started looking at photos waiting to be scrapbooked and when I saw Megan's pictures from the Youth Conference Dance Festival I knew they were perfect because the did dances from all over the world.  I added Dreamin' Big papers and Snapshot Complements to finish it.  I also did a Pocket Plus page (you can see the front and back of it in the pictures below) I just love those!  I think the layout turned out really cute, and Megan, she's just adorable!

BYU Hawaii Layout

My son enjoyed his Freshman year at BYU Hawaii so much and these pictures really show that!  Some of them aren't great because I stole them from Facebook lol, but I just had to have them on the layout regardless!  I used the My Boy Complements and the Whimsy papers and it turned out so cute!

Pike Place Market Gum Wall Layout

We had such a fun time at Pike Place Market with my daughters college roommates when they came to visit.  They particularly thought the Gum Wall was really funny and, of course, had to add their marks to the wall.  I had the Sugar Rush papers out and was wondering what pictures to use and as I was looking through my photos I came across these and knew they would be perfect!  I had extra pictures so I used some Pocket Plus memory protectors, I gotta tell you these are so fun, I can't decide whether I like the Flip Flaps or the Pocket Plus more!  I just love how the layout turned out!
