Stocked Up

I found some Crate Paper on clearance, and I stocked up. I love, love, LOVE Crate Paper! Their patterned paper has great designs, great colors, and is the perfect weight and texture. You should check it out if you're not familiar with it. The Keepsake Element has ordered a portion of the Brook collection for my next class, so be looking for that soon. In the meantime, I did some playing around with my new paper and created two new layouts with some old photos I found recently while cleaning. I love these layouts and photos and couldn't be happier with how they turned out. They're 8.5" x 11" format which I haven't done for awhile.
