My layouts from the retreat weekend

I can not tell a lie...I started both of these and finished them today at home. I confess; I played a ton more than I scrapped!
This is another one for my Italy album. I fell in love with the way the Italians took a small space and turned it into a lovely garden of Eden on almost every roof top I saw. I journaled inside what was the frame for some pop out chipboard shapes. Not being one to let much go to waste, I cut the frame in half as it reminded me of the layers of the apartment buildings.

The next layout is of my good pal, Chuck, who hates to have his picture taken almost as much as I do! I caught him unaware one evening this summer as all of us gathered during our week together to watch the sun set .

Both of these are done with the wonderful, the amazing, the one and only Cosmo Cricket papers! Posted by Picasa

Wow, the LOs, the rubber suit girls, the manatees. Sounds like you are having a great time at the moment. I love the tat too but I dont think that kind of thing is for me. Do you think Clare might get that one? LOL.

Both of your layouts are beautiful! So is the paper. I'll have to keep my eye for it!

Gorgeous--your layouts are great!!!
Did you do the letters with the WB or are they chipboard?
The papers are perfect for the pictures.
Glad you had a good weekend.
