Photos added!

Here are the pages I'll be doing tonight with my hostess club - with photos! I have been trying hard to get photos on all the layouts I do for the clubs and workshops so I don't end up with a stack of unfinished work . . . sound familiar to anyone??! The only hard part for this layout though was deciding what photos NOT to put on, the paper just seems to go with so much.

And just a couple more of my baby boy with the last of my You Rock paper . . .

Thanks for looking!

You Rock Hostess Club #4 Layout

For those of you joining me at the Hostess Club tomorrow evening (Thurs), this is the layout we will be completing. It is pictured here without the title and photos but I have another one with title and photos to post later :-) For those of you not in the hostess club tomorrow night, well here is some more inspiration to put that You Rock kit to good use! This layout is called "Treasure Tags" and can be found in the Cherish How-To book. Am I sick of this paper yet?? No way!

February's Workshop Kit - Topstitch

I am loving the versatility of this Topstitch paper! Although the layouts I have done below are very "girly" - a dose I needed after the "boy" pages of the You Rock kit this month - if you flip the pinky pages over they are brown or blue so for those of you with only boys to scrap you can enjoy this paper just as much!
