I did manage to get some creative time in on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I made a couple of cards which I posted earlier. And yesterday I did two page layouts...it has been a while since I have done a layout.
I used this weeks sketch 20 from Page Plans for this layout.
These are pictures of my dear mother-in-law and father-in-law. My FIL has been gone from us for well over a decade now and my MIL's health has really deteriorated over the past few years. For this layout I used textured cardstock and the sentiment was done on my computer. I stitched the border around the page on my sewing machine using one of the overcast stitches. For embellishment, I used Prima flowers topped off with a Prima center kiss. I love the simplicity of this layout -- it really focuses on the photos.
The second layout features a picture of my DH with his father and our oldest grandchild, Matthew, when he was just a toddler.
Once again, I kept this layout simple as I wanted the focus to be on the photo. I used red and blue cardstock, red and white check paper, Prima flowers, brads and a paper clip. The sentiment was done on the computer and I used an Autumn Leaves stamp for the journaling block.
******Have a great Labor Day!
