I have a couple more layouts to share today.....

First up is a layout using the sketch fromChallenge YOUrself, and the challenge to scrap about YOU and a female (or females) in your life. She can be a daughter, sister, friend, mother, grandmother, pet, etc.

Here is my layout of my Mom and me....

This picture was taken the day of my oldest sister's birthday party at my Mom's house.

I just love this Simple Stories 6X6 paper pad - Summer Fresh, that I paired up with SS Homespun sticker sheet and black Co'ordinations cardstock.

The litle polariod wood veener frame is from Maya Road.

I also used Thickers, and My Mind's Eye - Decorative tape.

Here is the sketch I used for inspiration...

I only used one photo and positioned it on the other side to better suit my photo.

I was also inspired by the Birthday Bash going on over at Sketch N Scrap and the challenge is at For the Love of Paper and here is the bingo card. I completed the bottom row with washi, bunting and Yellow.

I was also inspired by Stacey's H-W Challenge for Sketch's 4 All, you can find the info here. And the 
challenge is to use Black on your layout.

Stay tuned for part 2!
