A day of cropping!

Thanks everyone for all the love received on my previous post with the Hope layout.  That was quite the wordy post so I'll keep this one short and sweet. :)

Well did everyone love Breaking Dawn?  I enjoyed it myself, just wish we didn't have to wait a year to see the conclusion.  Friday I took the day off or work and cropped all day with some great friends.  I completed 5 layouts which is huge, especially at a social event like that it's easy to get distracted.  Here are 3 of the layouts I created.

This first one is for City Crafter Challenge Blog's four legged friend challenge.  The four legged friends were created from Lawn Fawn stamps, as was the little frame.

This next layout is based on Sketchy Thursdays sketch 11.17.  I followed the sketch pretty closely.  The pictures are of Marin putting star stickers on her belly.  When I saw her doing this I immediately thought of the Dr. Seuss book The Sneetches.  So this is titled Star Bellied Sneetch!

And I had no challenge in mind for this last layout.  I wanted to play around with some Tim Holtz kraft resist paper.  I stamped over it with a Crafters Workshop stencil.  And then just dug into my stash of old Sassafrass stickers.  I'm not sure I utilized the resit paper to it's fullest, but it was a fun layout and does look complete to me.

Thanks for looking!

I haven't gotten to see Breaking Dawn yet! I absolutely loved the books and have been a little disappointed in the movies, though I definitely want to see them. Here in NYC theater ticket prices are pretty outrageous and with my schedule & the fact that my boyfriend despises the movies & refuses to go means I'm prolly going to be waiting for the DVD.

Your layouts are all so gorgeous!! I love the backgrounds and how you didn't entirely cover them up. And the little animals on the first layout are soooo cute, especially the penguin [I loove penguins!!]

Look who has been busy !! I went to see Breaking Dawn too. I didn't think much of the film, although I loved it. Not difficult since the first scene is Jacob taking his shirt off !!

Gorgeous LO's, so bright, fresh and fun. I haven't seen any of the films but everyone seems to say this one is the best. Sorry it's taken so long to comment, I haven't been around much. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving, have a good weekend.xxx
