Thanks and Lots of Layouts!

First of all thank you to everyone who played along with Theresa's Birthday Blog Hop!  She was really touched. Since all plans we tried to make for the event fell through we ended up cropping at my house, just Theresa and myself.  But we had fun and were very productive!!!  Here are my layouts:

This first one is for Sketchy Thursdays.  When I saw this weeks sketch I saw a barn for whatever reason so these are pictures of Gavin in spring of 2010 at a farm with his preschool class. Manufacturers include Reminisce, October Afternoon, and BoBunny.

Well once started with the farm pictures I thought I'd finish them off.  This is based on the sketch at Sketches in Thyme.  Manufacturers include  KI Memories, October Afternoon, Studio Calico, BoBunny and American Crafts.

The picture in this next layout is one that I came across and couldn't believe I hadn't scrapboooked it yet.  I love Gavin's big eyes in it.  The sketch is from Design Dollies June sketch but as it's July I can't submit it there. But the title is based on this weeks challenge at Scrapping the Music.  The line actually reads Blue skies smilin at me, but I switched skies with eyes. Manufacturers include Pink Paislee, Basic Grey and Glitz.  And the map flowers are from Diana's Etsy Shop.

Okay the last layout is for Once Upon a Sketch. Journaling requirements were to name the person in the photo and tell something about them.  This is my DD Marin and her love of stickers, any stickers.  We were at a parade and every sticker she was handed she put on herself, whether from politicians of the Girl Scouts. Manufacturers include Sassafras, SEI, My Minds Eye, Maya Road, Petaloo, Fancy Pants and Recollections. And I want to give a big thanks to Yvonne who recently posted this great idea to make a banner from scraps of ribbon.  Love how this turned out!!!

Don't forget about this months challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous to use your hard to use color.  Go see what the fabuous DT did!!!

You've been a busy gal! I love each of these layouts. My fave is the farm one...I love all those cute little animals, and I love how you did the barn frame up top! I also love the animals in the second one...they're so vintage! I love your different flowers in the other two, and that ribbon banner is a technique I'm going to have to copy!! Love it!
