A card and three layouts

I have finally gotten some time to do some projects with my kit.  I made a card and three layouts, so far.  Here they are in the order I made them.  I worked with sketches on all of them, and tried not to over think the placement of every item.

A card for my Father-in-law, who sent me some lovely flowers on Mother's Day.  Sketch courtesy of Page Maps (April, 2012).

This layout was done with photos of my daughter and her boyfriend before the Prom.  I struggled a bit with this one, agonizing over every detail.  The sketch was from Shimelle's class "4 X 6 Photo Love", which I recently have gone back to watch.  This design was from March, 2011, hence the three photos.

 I used photos from Mother's Day for this layout, and the journaling tells a little about trying to get a nice photo of the kids and I with limited results.  The sketch came from "4 X 6 photo love", again.  This was the sketch from last February. 

I loved this sheet of paper, and wanted to do something unique with it.  The photo was from a trip to my home town, San Pedro, and my youngest child looking out over the cliffs.  I wanted to convey that disorienting feeling of looking down from a great height.  The journaling talks about the local geography.  The sketch is courtesy of Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit by Jenny Evans.

The agonizing was worth it! I especially love the last one as it does capture that feeling of looking down and feeling wobbly :)
