1st Day of School & Italian Countryside

I'm back today to share a few more layouts I created while at my scrappy retreat this weekend.

This one I braved it and created a double layout.  I found these old photos of my son that I hadn't scrapped yet.  Years ago I created 8 1/2 x 11 pages and have a bunch of them kitted up but I just can't bring myself to scrap that size anymore.  So I decided to do 12x12.  The sketch is by Page Maps.  I also incorporated a challenge at Scrap Our Stash where I used lined paper, alphas, an apple and a ruler.

 Here is what I came up with (sorry about the lighting...both sides are the same cream cardstock):

Another layout I created was this one created  using a few of our Italy photos.  I'm still sorting them out between 4 phone cameras and 2 big ones, it's a lot of work.  I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme. 

And here is my take on it.  I did add an additional photo and added my title to the top but otherwise stayed pretty true to the sketch.  

Thanks for stopping by!
