At last! Some layouts completed!

Although we had a busy weekend, with Ben paying us a flying visit and finally getting around to finishing all those jobs that were hanging over from our return from holiday, I managed to get into the conservatory and scrap!

My first layout is my first page for my USA scrapbook.
This was an amalgam of quite a few bits and pieces from Shimelle layouts! The border across the top was made by cutting out circles from the map we used and then folding them and then attaching with brads. I was pleased with the result.

I then decided to do a couple of layouts from our Isle of Wight holiday.
This layout was done using Shimelle's 'and now for something completely different' class on UKScrappers for June. When I had finished it I wasn't sure if I liked it, but it is growing on me!

The final layout I did was based on a sketch from a blog I stumbled upon. It is called 52sketches52weeks and is actually not running any more, but all the sketches are still available and there are some lovely ones.

I used sketch 47
and came up with this:
This layout I was really pleased with, and I enjoyed doing some stitching on it, so may break out the threads and do some more on the next few layouts!

It is lovely to be back in the swing of scrapbooking again. Before we went away I couldn't settle to it, but with no big events coming up at the moment I seem to be back in my groove!

They all look great Becky. I thought that second one looked familiar (I've been working away at one using it). My favourite of the 3 is the last one.

Wow, you have certainly been creative - great layouts. I especially like the large photo on the USA one.

I like every one of these, Becky, but I'm another one who just loves that first layout with that gorgeous photo!

Would love to know exactly how you did the circles on the first layout! It's a great idea for using memorabilia on a page!
