Wednesday again??

Is it me, or is the time going by way to fast? I normally try to blog in the morning on Wednesday because my mornings are jam-packed but I just haven't had the time. So, here I am a little later in the day. :)

One thing I have been noticing about myself lately is that I am not committed to doing a single-size layout. I will do anything from a 6x12 to a 12x12 and I normally allow the photo to dictate the size that I am going to do. The following two layouts are the only ones I have had time for this past week and they are both 8.5x11.
The first one is made with the September "Over the Rainbow" kit, with a few additional items that I threw in.

This picture just spoke to me. My daughter looks so young and free, ready to take on the world. Although, it's only a picture of her back and most people may not get that, this is what comes up for me. I decided to use the lyrics to one of my favorite songs by the Grateful Dead, Sugar Magnolia.

The next layout is just a quick one that I put together. I normally don't scrap with such bright colors but I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and I am pleased that I did.

Anyways, I hope you are having a fabulous week and are getting everything together for Halloween. See you next week!! :)
