Some layout fun

 I've got a few layouts for you today. This one started with my desire to use more of the Bazzill Basics tape that I recently won. I decided to do the popular chevron design across the page and ended up turning it sideways after getting my photos and few more embellishements on there. I used mostly Simple Stories Awesome line. 
This is all about my oldest boy learning (or not) how to vacuum.
 This one I did for a one hour sketch challenge on My Sketch World. It was a lot of fun. I barely made the time limit, but I did some fussy cutting with those flowers. So I'm hoping that's why I cut it so close. :) I did tweak it a little after the challenge. I used mostly Bo Bunny and did a little doodling. 
  This is one of my latest favorite photos of my oldest daughter on the swing with my youngest son.
This last one is Monday's NAS layout using this sketch:
I used the backsides of some basketball paper from SEI. That's the best thing about double sided papers. If you can't use the front you have another choice on the back. I also used some baker's twine and did a backstitch around the edge of the layout to frame it. I did a little machine sewing and used lots of pop dots on the stars.
Love these crazy photos of my husband playing with our 3 youngest.

Shawn just posted a few new sketches on her blog. I can't wait to use them, they are awesome! Go check them out here.
Have you done any fun challenges lately? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by!

Your layouts are on fire gf.. totally love your stitching in the last one, Shawn's sketches are always fab! Your work is lovely! I bet the fussy cutting is what cut you so close to the limit, it can be time consuming!
