...And Two More

So I started a trend yesterday, I guess, because I'm back today with two more related-to-each-other layouts.  I was once criticized either here or on some other public forum for scrapbooking ALL my pictures and told that I'd be scrapbooking forever if I felt the need to scrap all my pictures.  Well...so?  Scrapbooking is as much, if not more so, about the creative outlet for me as it is about the memory preservation.  So while knowing I have hundreds upon hundreds of photos left to scrap is rather daunting, it's also comforting knowing I'll never run out of projects.

So I say all that to say this....I have two recent layouts from our vacation in Killarney National Park in the summer of 2011 from a viewpoint called "Ladies View".  One is simply the lovely views, while another is of Lisa being silly and hiding behind a sign, while her hands grasp it from the other side. 

So without further ado...

Ladies View

I'm really enjoying looking at pages that have this muted, soft color scheme.  I very rarely am able to pull it off, but love how this came together with just a few splashes of bright blue and red.

I don't think I'll ever tire of wood grain and chevron...

I love all the vellum die cuts that Studio Calico has been including in their kits. I layered a bunch of these awesome arrows and stapled them to my page. 

Supplies:  patterned paper - Basic Grey, Echo Park, Kesi'Art, Studio Calico; letter stickers - American Crafts, Basic Grey; wood veneer, stamps & vellum die cuts - Studio Calico; flair badge -  A Flair For Buttons; date stamp - K and Co.; tape - Freckled Fawn


Here Lisa showcases her nuttiness, hiding behind this huge lookout sign and allowing her hands to peek over the top.  Which from the photo of the layout, you can barely make out!

I loved using a bunch of October Afternoon's Farm Girl line on this layout - from paper to washi tape to letter stickers.

 A few pieces of October Afternoon doo-dads and another awesome die cut from Evalicious. 


More of my beloved Studio Calico wood veneer in the top right corner here, tons of washi and some stamping.  My stamps, sadly, see so little use!

A tag, a flower die cut from an older October Afternoon line and a vintage bottle cap from Jenni Bowlin.

Supplies:  patterned paper - October Afternoon; die cuts - Evalicious, October Afternoon; bottle cap - Jenni Bowlin; tapes - Freckled Fawn, October Afternoon; letter stickers - October Afternoon; stamps - Studio Calico; wood veneer - Studio Calico; other - tag, ribbon
