Sea World 2013 with Let's Scrap...

I can't believe it's already the middle of August...this Summer has flown by!!!

Mid-month means it's time for another Let's Scrap Sketch!!! I didn't do too much altering to this sketch as I loved the square photos and the layout....

I used a paper packet I've had a while...love all the stars and colors...I bought it back before little Miss L arrived and blessed our family of boys! The Stickease that came with this paper are really birthday-themed but I saved those for another layout and used only the stars! You can see other stuff I've made with this paper <<<here>>>.

Here's a look at the sketch...

I hope you'll play along with us!

Wanderful Layouts...

As promised here are the other 2 double-page layouts that I taught my girls a couple of weeks ago.

I absolutely LOVE this paper from CTMH...the colors are so calming and the patterns (especially that Crystal Blue Polka Dot) is to die for!

---------------------------------------------------
Here are some close-ups...you probably noticed that these are the same sketches as I used for the Brushed Layouts I showed you yesterday. I had some girls that wanted the Brushed Paper Packet and some that wanted this Wanderful one which is geared more towards travel/vacation! The layout below was featured on Scrapbook Generation's Blog a couple of months ago :0)
-------------------------------------------------
This two-page layout uses the Wanderful PML cards for some of the photo wells but you could also leave them off if you'd like and just use lots of pictures!


Remember...if you're local and want to come scrap with us next month, let me know and I'll put you on the e-mail list that will go out in a week or so. We have TONS of fun AND you get two 2-page layouts done!

Brushed Layouts...

I got a chance to meet with my "girls" a couple of weeks ago and these are some of the layouts I had them make.

------------------------------------------------
Here's a look at the pages...I used PML (Pocket Scrapbooking) cards for some of the photo wells.
 -------------------------------------------------
This layout uses one of the Scrapbook Generation sketches...LOVE finding inspiration in sketches! Those little squares photo wells on the right are going to be perfect for all the Instagram Photos I take. Are you a follower...if not, look me up...my IG username is "katylintaylor"
-----------------------------------------------
Here's a side view showing the slight dimension I created using the Thin 3D-Foam Tape...
They LOVED making them and we got to sit there and talk and catch up...that's half the fun, right!

If you're local to my area and would like to join us next month, let me know!

Thanks for stopping by1

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for a look at the other pages we did using Wanderful!
