Flight Time & a few extra layouts

Today I'm hosting over at the Frosted Designs is my post (and then a few others just for fun)

It's Joni Parker hosting today's post... and I'm sharing with you how I use typical Project Life elements but on a traditional scrapbook layout.

Here I used the Elle's Studio line "Everyday Moments" and created a layout that is in the typical block style of a project life page, but I used a 12x12 background instead of pocket pages.

I used pieces from the Journal Tags (Highlights), from Bits and Pieces (Extraordinary), from Lil Snippets (Details Please and Remember) and I cut a piece from a larger sheet (Happiness Found)

I also used a Jillibean Soup mini placemat for a frame .. (Best Day Ever).
And I tied it all together with 4 small border strips and a few wooden stars.

So don't be afraid to purchase items that are created for Project Life...those can be used just as well on traditional scrapbooking layouts (and they are easy to use too!)!!

And I also played in a few challenges at Memorable Seasons and here are my layouts for those:

A few recent layouts....

Sharing a few recent layouts that were done for different sites/challenges.

This first one is for FROSTED DESIGNS where our challenge was to use stamping on a page.
I added some blue stamps along the outside edges of the black/white text paper to "bring in" the colors from the center section.

These next four are for challenges at Memorable Seasons....
Sketch: (I used the left half of a 2 page sketch)
Use a layer of "ink" (I used an arrow mask) 
 Recipe - 1 pic, 2 mat, 3 strips, 4 embellies

Something "favorite" as inspiration.
I chose to highlight that we love taking "perspective" photos, like the first one below where Joseph "appears" to be eating from an ice cream cone, but it's really a wooden placque hanging on a fence.  I paired it with a photo of him eating a real ice cream cone a few minutes later!

thanks for dropping by!!
