Catching up & Using Sketches!

I haven't posted any layouts lately, but I have been scrapping. So I thought I'd take a second and catch up on posting.

My new scrapping friend, Bonnie from The Mad Scrappers, started posting sketches on her blog every Friday. I LOVE sketches! So, here's the first sketch that Bonnie posted on her website:

And here's what I ended up with:

I only did the left side because I didn't have enough pictures to do both sides, and I flipped it around some. My journaling is on a pull out tag at the bottom left under the subtitle. (And yes, these pictures are from waaaaay back! Like, twenty-**cough cough** years ago!)

And when I was done with the page, I went ahead and used the scraps to make these two cards:

I love using up scraps! Especially when I already have all these things laying all over my desk that match!

Here's some other layouts that I've done lately:
This one uses a picture from when my parents-in-law had just got married. I used some of my grandmother's lace and a rose of ribbon that I made.

This one uses pictures from when our first two grandsons were born (uhhh...that was like 9 years ago now...yeah, I'm what you'd call 'a little behind' in scrapping!).
