A couple of layouts from my Best of Both Worlds March Kit

Shimelle used up all her March kit and showed us what she had done here. I have just got a few envelopes left and some small pieces of paper! As I don't really make cards I shan't be using them for that, but they will probably appear on a layout at some time! This layout is also based on Shimelle's Sketch to Scrapbook Page Layout number 13.

This first layout is made with photos from our family party celebrating the two anniversaries. I wanted to showcase some of the general photos of people enjoying themselves.
These photos were taken 2 years apart. When Penny saw the one of Emily she immediately said 'you have to scrap that alongside the one of me with Willow - we look so alike!', so I did as I was told!
I remembered to get my stamps out and use them with this layout! The camera at the top of the page and the heart here. That might not be a lot of stamping, but at least I remembered them!
This final layout is scrapped with a photo taken only last month, on our Shropshire holiday. The layout Shimelle did was perfect for our photo as it was raining when Penny took it.
I really like how this one has come together. I don't often scrap with pink, but it goes very well with the dull photo.
I didn't have a cloud stamp, so improvised. I cut some clouds out with my Cricut and then drew around them.
We have been sooooo busy recently that I haven't had much time to scrap. However, I did have Wendy and Sue round last Wednesday evening and we did get to have a bit of a play! And on Saturday afternoon I got a couple of layouts done for my California album (or should I say second album as the first is already full!).

What gorgeous layouts

You are right about that pink - it does something extra to the photo. Love that.

Great layouts Becky. I especially like the envelopes on the first one & I agree that the pink really works on that last one. But the middle one is my favorite - a connections layout with photos from different years - PERFECT!

These are all so fun - live the last one.

That lovely pink is great with the more monochrome photo, and your cloud 'stamp' is a clever workaround! I am impressed by how much scrapping you can get done despite the busyness :).

Really like the pink with the grey tones in the photo.

I'm also impressed at how much scrapping you are getting done - clever use of the cutouts to make the stamp. I have to get my stamps out purposefully or they just don't get used too.

They all look wonderful Becky but I think my favourite is the middle one - it's remarkable how alike the 2 pictures are.
