I found two unfinished layouts laying around from the last time I went to a Creating Keepsakes Convention back in 2012. It feels really good to have these done. Here is the first one:

With this many pictures on this two page layout and the various patterns I wanted to keep the other embellishments to a minimum. I love that I was able to document a full school year of everyday highlights in a single layout. I put together the photo collages using templates from Kerri Bradford.

I know that it is March, but this is one of the last layouts that I made last month for my stash bashing challenge of using Fancy Pants paper. I have also signed up for the challenge for the month of March, so this month I will be working on using buttons.
But for now lets get back to this Fancy Pants layout. It took a long time to get all of the stitching done on this layout, but I love the texture that it added to the finished layout.
Here is one close-up:

Welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for March, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.
I created this layout as part of my personal stash bash challenge. A friend of mine issued the challenge to use only one paper company for the month and I picked Fancy Pants. I love that I was able to use up so many smaller pieces of paper. I loved this Scrapbook Generation sketch for using some scraps, fitting in lots of pictures, and added cute little embellishments.
You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free sketch every month in case you wanted to try it out. Make sure to check out their new online magazine called Create for more sketch inspiration and to see the new monthly sketches each and every month.
Next on the hop is Brenda, leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be drawn on Monday, March 10th, so you have one week to leave a comment.
Layouts Supplies – Sketch: Scrapbook Generation. Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants Designs. Cardstock: Bazzill. Chipboard and stickers: Heidi Swapp. Letters: American Craft Thickers. Wood Veneer: Studio Calico. Ranger Liquid Pearls. Sequins: Art Minds. Washi: My Mind’s Eye.

It is that time of the month again…Mye De Leon has released a HUGE new collection available for a few more days to her newsletter subscribers for an amazing price. When I first got this kit I was surprised at how loaded it is!!
For this layout I looked at the templates that come with this collection, I figured out how to move it around to fit my picture and to create it with paper elements.
A couple of close-ups:
Aren’t those little 2x2 squares just adorable!! I loved the variety of sizes of journaling cards Mye has put into this kit.

Last week Mye De Leon released a totally fabulous collaboration with Mandi King. As soon as I saw this collection I thought that it would be a perfect compliment to these adorable pictures.
