I did these lastnight. You can tell the difference when I'm feeling inspired and when I'm not! LOL!!! The first layout I love! It just came together so quickly and easily. The second layout took twice as long, because I just didn't have an mojo left. (1am in the morning tends to fry my brain anyways. )
Gwen sent me that awesome little tree and I just cut a circle of patterned paper to go behind it. (What cart is that from Gwen?) It was perfect for this and basically kicked the whole page off for me and made it all flow. The "Just You" frame is from Graphically Speaking. Again, I thought it was perfect for the photograph.
Here's a close-up
And the second layout I'm not happy with, but oh well:
scallop edging is from Accent Essentials and title is from DonJuan.
I distressed the edges of the paper to make a frame around the picture.
And two simple cards using leftover bits/extra cuts.
Do you remember those baby girl cards I posted a few days ago? Couldn't waste the inside cuts, so made another card. What am I going to do with all these baby cards you ask? between my sis and I we have about 10 baby showers in March to attend!! (most are girls)
And I was totally goofing off here with seeing what the cuts from Graphically Speaking looked like.

I too simply adore the 1st one. What a precious way to just capture Kayson. He's so precious! You did a great job. I think the 2nd one is great too b/c it's from your heart. Looks like he really enjoys the boat show! The cards are just perfect....as always. I love the cards, especially the baby girl one with the notebook paper look!

wow, I really LOVE that first one!!! smart to use the circle behind the tree, adding this to my lift folder!!! the tree is from Zooballoo - all of the cuts I sent were from there, since I knew you didn't have it.
I'm with you, I don't feel love for the second page, but it is cute. I like the journaling. and the "goofing off" sure made an awesome card, LOVE IT! do you send cards often? I mean, friend cards like that? I don't write real cards like I should ...
