A layout for Melanie by Angela

Most crafters I know get into jags or phases. A few weeks ago, I decided that the newsprint paper tablets I had given my 5 year-old to doodle in (from the $1 store, by the way) were fabulous for myFiskars gel pens. Let's face it, no brand of gel pens are always working at 100%. They skip on paper that's too slick and sometimes bleed on paper that's too porous. But cheap newsprint-y paper? Score! This little glimpse of my layout shows my new jag- teensy-tiny little titles with the letters colored in with color coordinating gel pens. All the other trim is just a bonus =)

A Page by Cheryl for Melissa

What fun photos of Melissa. These photos really show her personality! She is such a fun gal and I was thrilled to get to scrap these photos that a friend took of her. So the title of the layout . . . 'Sew' Much Fun. I used different sewing embellishments and even had fun doing some embroidery. The back of the layouts have a pocket made with a vintage hankie that stores extra photos.

Thanks Melissa for allowing me to scrap these fun photos and keep being you! You're a lovely and lively gal! I appreciate you.

I did make a duplicate of the layout I created for Melissa for some 'fun photos' of friends at Reflections 2009.

'Sew' . . . in a world where you can be anything . . . Be Yourself!
