A couple of cousin layouts

I spent the weekend out at the Blueberry,at a Scrapbook Retreat put on by Unforgettable Memories.  My goal was to finish 6 double page layouts, and I did it.  Though four of those layouts were for my sister and only two for my albums. Her photos just worked with the latest papers I had picked up from the store.
 Her boys love to bike. I've left room for Tan to journal on Wade's layout.  The other one I did the journaling for.

I love this Echo Park line.  It is called 'for the record 2' and it's perfect for boy pages.  On the page above I created a banner using the sayings and notecard paper.  Lots of stickers and chipboard come with this line.

On the page below I used up almost the entire sheet of chipboard pieces and then I used the empty chipboard sheet on the right page.
 I especially love the chipboard bike.

Misted background

I love how this background turned out.  I misted gold, pink, blue and green after wetting my white cardstock thoroughly, so it all blurred together.  Unfortunately the camera picks up the glitter and makes it look hard, but IRL the background is very soft and hazy looking.  Really gorgeous.

The photos are of my MILs garden.

So happy to see you

Lots of paint and mist on the background.  It was kind of fun, but messy, working on it.

A couple more Smash Journal pages

Breanna dyed Emily's hair with crimson streaks the evening before Em's birthday.  This page in my Smash Journal was perfect for these pics. I put lots of sparklies on the page to girly it up.

The one day we had that wasn't gorgeous and hot we went to the rec center and swam indoors.  Most of the kids and Grandad had a lot of fun splashing around.  I used some old Cosmo Cricket stickers and MM tags strung on some bakers twine.  A really quick page.

A Smashing good morning to you

It's my day off so I have done a couple more pages in my Smash journal of Whistler.

Lots of journaling on these pages.  The top photo lifts up with more journaling underneath.

It's a dreary day here.  Very wet and overcast so difficult to get a good photo of my pages. 
I'm having fun with these little pages.  I love the right page of the girl cousins getting wet.  I sprayed my tree mask and the rest came toghether in about 10 minutes.
