Sweet Faces!

Okay, a few more NSD layouts.  My favorite thing about these first 2 layouts are the sweet faces in the pictures.
This first one is based on sketch #118 from The Scrappiest and it's also for the Only You challenge over at Scrap Fit.
The journaling reads, "Gavin, Only you could still find a place to hang your lightsabers while running around in your underwear."  I love this picture of him, his face looks so sweet and innocent.  Gavin does not like wearing a lot of  clothes, he's better about it now than in the past, but for awhile there he'd strip down into his underwear as soon as he stepped through the door.  All the patterned paper here is Creative Imaginations Star Wars paper.  I used some silver plated metallic Maya Mist on the base black card stock.  Kind of a quick and easy layout but I didn't want to fuss it up too much.

This layout is based on one of the Nuts About Sketches Birthday sketch #1.
This picture is just from 2 weekends ago.  It was Marin's 3rd birthday party and this is a picture of her looking at her cake and presents before her friends started to arrive!  It's one of those pictures that you love capturing.  The layout is titled Patiently Waiting. This layout was a lot of fun.  The pp, frame,  die cut sheet, and gray fabric border are all Little Yellow Bicycle, the doillie is from Theresa who found it at a grocery store.  The flowers are Making Memories, Recollections, and the crocheted flower is from Theresa for my birthday and I believe it was an Etsy find.  Oh and the butterfly ribbon is also Making Memories.

Lastly here is a 2 pager based on Nut's About Sketch #159, but I'm too late to post this there.  I tried to make these flow together as a 2-pager but still look good as one pagers.

Lot's of different manufacturers used on this, Pink Paislee, October Afternoon, Echo Park, Maya...  You can't really see this on the picture but I cut fringe for grass on the 2 bottom green layers and then rolled it down.  I think these two layouts are okay but I think they still need a little somethin' somethin' ... any suggestions?

Don't forget to play along with Scrapbookers Anonymous May Challenge to pull out those stamps you've been collecting.   That's it for now!  Thanks for looking!!!

Awwww. I can't tell you how much all of these just make me happy looking at them. you do have cute kids. =) not to mention all your skills..
I thought the last 2 pager was from Let's Scrap.. NAS huh??? looks fab no matter what. how about some bling or stickles in the yellow circle and perhaps some twine in the empty spaces at the bottom with the grass. I think it looks great but never can go wrong with bling and twine...

I love the picture with the light saber !! My kids are a little too old to dress up now but they still come up with strange combinations of clothing. And that picture of your little girl waiting for her party is so cute. If you did scrapbook, you would probably have never taken that picture and yet it just captures the moment so well, it is perfect !

Hi, Lea!!! Love, love all of them, especially the Stars Wars one! By the way, I have one HB with the Star Wars theme! TFI!!

For the last one, love as it is, great job with the layering! Love what you did with the cloud, too! But, if you want to add something! Maybe I would add a banner across the two pages, and maybe that way it fill the center. But, as I said, as it is looks really good!
