Some new layouts

My first new LO is of Blarney castle in Cork. We went to Cork for our anniversary in April. Although it rained for the whole weekend, we had a perfect holiday and Blarney castle was definately one of the highlights. For this LO I used a sketch from my August '09 Creating Keepsakes magazine, Doodlebug pp, Making memories journaling stamp, Prima flowers (thank you Vicky!), Karen Foster Blarney sticker and some gems and ribbon.

My second LO is of this years Easter egg hunt. We always have an egg hunt for the boys, but this year it rained so we hid clues and eggs around the house for them. I don't get to use much pink on my layouts as I mainly do LO's of my husband, 2 boys or holidays, so I thought if there was a LO that I could use pink on it was Easter and I think I pulled it off without making it too girly! I really liked Becky's sketch from the CK September '09 issue so I used one side of the sketch, Doodlebug pp, Papermania ribbon, letter stickers, buttons and flowers, the Easter bunny is from Paper bliss that I got a few years ago when we went to Chicago.

Dianne is giving away some blog candy on her Paper hugs blog so please stop by and leave her a comment

These are great layouts Jessie. Ireland is so beautiful. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country. I've always wanted to visit there. Maybe one day. Your Easter layout is perfect and not at all girly even with the pink. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
