Scrapbooking- Boy and girl layout

I was going  through some photos the other day and stumbled across the following layout that I created for a Scrapbooking class some time ago.   I thought I had shared it on my blog but it appears that I haven’t….so here you go!

This is the sketch that was offered to participants.  People were able to use papers and colours that worked with their photos.

One of my sample layouts was of my son- This was actually last year’s School Swimming Carnival (2012) and we’ve already had this year’s School Carnival….oops! Time does pass rather quickly.  This photo from last year shows Jared and his good mate after the carnival.  Last year Jared was runner-up Champion Boy and this year he was awarded Champion Boy which he was rather chuffed about….I must get around to scrappin’ that photo too!    ( I must add that in the other photo in this layout I tried to capture my son swimming in our backyard pool.  He couldn’t resist  ’posing for the camera’- There’s no way he would stop and grin like that in an actual race! )

For this layout I used the International Bazaar Designer Series paper (pg 164 Product code 126920)

I also created a second layout that was a little more girly.  This is my precious daughter, Erin and my sweet Great- Niece (as in I’m her Great- Aunty not that she isn’t ‘great’ as well!)

I used the Floral District patterned paper for this layout (pg 163 Product code 126919)  The title was cut with the “Typeset Alphabet” Dies and my bigshot (pg 193 Product code 127553)
