Layouts: Protracted Roses Piggy School Siblings

Back again with more layouts to share! :)

Pamela Donnis is back from her summer off and is getting all settled in over at her new home at Little Dreamer. I’ve got two very different layouts using some of her latest additions! First up is one with a few shots of Matthew hard at play earlier this last month. (How did it get to be September already?)

Journaling: Matthew asked for a refresher on how to use a protractor, so that he could measure out angles to divide up an area of a game field he was drawing. He took his time figuring everything out and was very meticulous. I love watching him work on something like this… the shoulders and brow go up… or the bottom lip disappears. It’s Serious Business. He spent hours working on the drawing, perfecting every detail. Yep, the kid definitely has “engineer” in his blood. August 8, 2010.

Then we have a much softer antique-y vibe one. I had fun playing with some of my shots of the neighbor’s roses from this spring. :)

Next is one using Michelle Coleman’s latest kit, “Wonderful”. This is such a versatile kit. You could easily do Independence Day layouts with it, but there are also some terrific greens in it that can take it in a totally different direction. I used it with this fun shot of the kids. :)

Journaling: Matthew and Kaylee definitely have their moments of not getting along. At all. But in between those times, they are wonderful friends. I love the way they play together and support each other. This shot of Matthew giving Kaylee a random drive-by hug for the camera cracks me up. You can see from her face that she’s pretending to hate it, but she really does adore her big brother. 8/5/10

Now we’re on to some Misty Mareda goodies!  I used this cute doodled frame to showcase a pic of Kaylee’s adorable little toes. I had fun playing with the title work on this one, and the layout was spotlighted on the Gallery Standouts blog!

Journaling: Kaylee came down with a bit of a flu bug and spent the day camped out on the couch, missing school. She consented only to a picture of her toes. 5/24/10

And, finally, one with Misty’s latest kit, “First Day”, a fun twist on the traditional back to school kits… and it just happened to perfectly match the kids’ choice of outfits for their first day! One of the comments I got most on this layout around in the galleries was how much they look like me. Must have something to do with the way I’m always walking around with my thumbs up. ;)

So that’s the layout round up for now! With the closing of ScrapArtist, PixelWorks is in the process of relocating to a new shop. I’ll be back with layouts with some fab new goodies from her soon though!!

Oh, I also wanted to mention that the “Model Camper” layout I posted last time also got chosen for the GSO blog! Woo hoo!! :) So bummed that Jess’ little foray back into designing is over for now. :(  Getting to work with her designs again reminded me just how much I miss them!!

Have a great day everyone! :)
