Couple of Layouts

I have a couple of layouts to share. I am forcing myself to get cought up on some 12 x 12 layouts before I let myself do another mini album. I am pretty behind. Anyway, I got both of these layouts done this week. The first layout is about our Guinea Pig Darwin. I had to document that my son loved getting this little guy and has done pretty well at taking care of him. Darwin is a character. He has started nibbling at his cage when he wants to eat and trys to pull the bowl out of my hands. He is so darn cute. The second layout is of Mother's Day but I decided to make the layout about my son and his cousins relationship instead. There isn't any journaling. I felt the title said enough, but who knows maybe later I will add some. The paper I used on this layout is from Believe by Recollections. Which is a Christmas paper pad. I have been having the hardest time finding paper in my stash that I want to use. So I decided to broaden my horizons and looked through the Christmas papers and found something. Seems silly that in all the paper I have I can't find anything I want to work with. I always think in terms of mini's and don't want to use paper that would make a cute album. So that's what I have been working on this week. Now I am off to get some more done.

Love Is The Master Key

Here is a mixed media piece I did this week. I think it will be one of three. Two at least. I got the idea for this from Rachel or Rach0113 on youtube. She does amazing work. I'm calling it Love Is The Master Key. After Oliver Wendell Holmes's quote "Love is the master key which opens the gate of happiness." If you want to know how to do this then just click on Rachel's youtube channel and it will take you to her video.
