My first layout is based on my sketch for ScrapThat! January Kit.

As stated before, this layout is based on my sketch for this month. I used the Main Kit only for this layout. The small cream color alphas in the title are from my stash as is the puffy paint used in the flowers and butterflies. Come back later this month and I'll show you how I made these flowers!

 I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On for this layout. I actually managed to fit 7 pictures in this one page layout! These pictures were taken in downtown Seattle back in 2011 when we visited. We loved it so much we actually went twice! The doily and puffy paint are from my stash.

For my last layout, I used the Main Kit, The Embellishment Add On and Flower Add On as well. This layout is based on my June sketch for ScrapThat! below. I did make it my own and omitted a few details such as title placement. This picture was taken on the Space Needle in downtown Seattle.
