Go Speed Racer

I love how Aphra has used the large arrow and incorporated it into her theme; racing! I think it's awesome that she took the strip of paper along the arrow and designed it in to a string of checkered flags! How clever! A super fun and creative layout Aphra!

August Sketch: 12x12

A fun, multiple photo sketch for you!

Mama's Baby
by Jen B.

I love the way Jen has taken the large rectangle and used a large label shape instead for the base of her photos. She's also used the Katie Cupcake stamp from our sponsor's, the Little Paper Shop on her page today! Wonderful page Jen!

Family Staycation
by Frances

For Frances' cute page, I love she has created a little scene with her cute little tree images just above her title. To incorporate all of her images, she broke the large photo space down into 4 smaller photos from the sketch. Super cute page Frances!

August Sketch: 12x12

A sketch with lots of space to journal today...

Game Boys
by Jenn S.

For Jenn's page, she has first off taken the lower photo and divided into two separate photos to ensure she has all the photos to tell her layout's story. She's used a multitude of fun tags to place all of her journaling on. What a great masculine and fun page Jenn!

Sitting Pretty
by Frances

For Frances' page, she has minimized the sketch to fit only a portion of her page to allow for lots of white space. She's taken the 2 photos from the sketch and sized it to fit only one key photo. She's also used some cool buttons and trims to make up the strip elements above and belwo her photo. An adorable page Frances!

Birthday Present 2009
by Zoe

For Zoe's page, she has used one of our sponsor's cute little stamps, Katie Cupcake from the Little Paper Shop. She's even coloured the image's dress the same colour as her daughter's dress! I love that she has used a different edge instead of the scallop along the edge of her page. What great colours too! Fabulous layout Zoe!

August Sketch: 12x12

A fun sketch with a few straight lines and a few circles today...

by Jen B.

For Jen's page, I love that she's taken the large circle shape and made her own by using a large label shaped paper. I love all the bold and fun prints she's used to frame up her adorable pictures of her son. Did you see the two doggies in the corner making up the small circle from the sketch? How cute is that! Super adorable page Jen!

Sorry for a weird post today... we had family from out of province visiting the last few days.

Here's a fun and simple 2 page sketch for you today....

All Aboard
