Jubilee and Twigs

I am so excited to to say that I got two pages done that I am pretty proud of.  Yay me!!!  I've been staying up late with Jon and working on them.  Trying to spend some time with him and still get something done. :) 

Here's the first one.  I used the Jubilee line from the Girls Paperie new collections.  I fell in love with this plaid paper the moment I saw it and knew I wanted to use it on a page for something.  It's just so stinkin pretty.  I really fell in love with their whole release this time.  They rock!!!

Loved seeing how much she changed over these years.  It's crazy how fast time goes by.  Here are a couple close ups, too.
I am so totally in love with all things banners right now.  I know everyone else is too.  I can't help but use them on my layout lately.  I had fun making this one.  I handcut the first piece then used that one as a template for the rest.  Add some letter stickers and a bit of stitching and you're done!!  

Here is the second.  I was over at my friend Marnies' house and she was going thru her paper stash.  She decided that she wouldn't use these papers from the Little Yellow Bicycle Twig line.  Lucky me, I got to take them home.  Thanks Marnie!!!!!!  Anyway, I didn't know what I'd use them for either, but when I saw these pictures of AJ, I knew they'd be perfect!  Love the way it turned out. :)
And miracle above all miracles, this one was all me.  I didn't use a sketch or get an idea from another layout.  All me.  Again, you can tell I'm pretty proud.  :) 
Again with the banner.  This one was too cute to pass up and already adhesive.  My fish were made from the leaf paper.  I just rounded one end of the leaf, added a brad and a tail and popped them up.  I made sure to have room for my journaling, too.  I've not been writing as much as I should.  On the other layout, I didn't my journaling on the back so at least I would have it somewhere. 

And that's all for now.  I've got several more ready to go.  Just need to plan a bit and they'll be up in no time.  I hope.  :)
