Layouts as promised

Here are some of the layouts I've done of our trip to America in Dec 06/Jan 07. The quality of the photos isn't great, I never seem to get the right light etc. Will upload more as I get them done, have so far done 14 layouts of our trip.

This layout is one half of a double layout. The helicopter we went on over New York and Ethan sat at the front and ready to do. Used paper and cardstock that my Auntie got me for Christmas, $2 stamps from Walmart, photo anchors and brads from a Sweetwater kit and Autumn Leaves clear stamps (below). I have left the right side of it so you can see the Statue of Liberty on the paper.

This layout is of me and Ethan ice skating in Bryant Park New York. Used Sweetwater paper, Bazzill cardstock from December Jenni Bowlin kit and title cut on Katy's Cricut which she very kindly let me use at the last crop :)

This is Ethan on the giant piano and outside FAO Schwartz. Used Sweetwater papers and tag, Pressed Petals letters and letter stickers and buttons.

This layout is of Ethan in Central Park New York. Used Bazzill cardstock, Catslife diamond stamp, Jenni Bowlin lined paper, Sweetwater paper. Title is cut using Katy's Cricut.

This layout is Ethan in front of the Christmas tree on Christmas morning wearing his new Spongebob pj's! Used Sweetwater papers, letter stickers, tags, journaling tab and Bazzill cardstock.

This layout is of me, John and Ethan at Maymont Park in the Japanese water gardens. I got the paper from a scrapbook shop in America, also used Bazzill cardstock, Prima flowers, Jenni Bowlin note card and title cut using Katy's Cricut.

This layout is of Ethan candle dipping at Yankee Candle. He loved doing this and made lots of gifts for friends and family. Used Sweetwater papers, letter stickers, Bazzill cardstock and flower and ric rak from December Jenni Bowlin kit.

I ordered these Autumn Leaves stamps by Tia Bennett whilst I was in America but they arrived a few hours after we left. Fortunately my Auntie sent them onto me and they arrived 4 days later! They are great and I've used them loads on the layouts I've done since. On some layouts I've just inked part of the stamp, ie. the lines and used them.

All fantastic layouts Lisa! You've been busy. I know I've said it before, but I just love the photo of DS in the helicopter with the head phones on....the excitement on his little face.

Great layouts Lisa, your album is going to be fabulous and full of wonderful memories that you've managed to get down so soon after getting back. :)
