Flying Flying Flying

I was browsing through some of my old layouts and these two caught my eye. Probably because they are my favorite color scheme - aqua blue and orange. Actually, aqua blue and anything is my favorite color scheme. It just seems to work with most of my pictures. Maybe it's a boy thing?
This one on top took me forever and a day because I really wanted to use the cloud paper (for the kites) and the sun paper. I finally made it work by combining the October Afternoon clouds, Fancy Pants sun paper and Cosmo Cricket everything else. The chipboard title is old and I painted it barn red. So in just a mere 3.5 hours (ha), voila - one kite flying layout.
And to make up for that kite layout, this one was done probably in an hour or so. I think this is a sketch from somewhere, but I can't remember where I got it from. It may be from amillionlittlethings.com - so thank you if that's where it originated from. And if not, my apologies! I love how it's almost a crisscross pattern. All of the patterned paper is vertically laid and all of the photos/journaling/title are horizontal. It's a cool effect.
All of the paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Lil Man line and the brown alphas are Pink Paislee.

  1. I saw your layout on 2Peas and just LOVE it!!! I enjoyed looking through your layouts on your blog, finding great 2 page layouts and pages with multiple pictures is kind of rare and add to that they are boy layouts without butterflies and flowers and I'm just in scraplifters paradise. Anyway, love finding a talented scrappers blog :)
