May layouts for Crop

May Crop layouts.... everyone will get 6 sheets of 12x12 papers which will allow them to use the matting and borders layout on their background papers. They must choose their own title and cut it from matching papers they have.

For mine I chose to do a layout of Brock planting the garden with Uncle Jason and decided to use REAL beans instead of buttons on my star flowers. Also made a dirt patch with beans.. Using patterns papers from the My Minds Eye (In Bloom) and coordinations  cardstock from my friends ebay store Lisa Harris  .  check here out she has some GREAT bargains!!
Some worry about the beans not being acid free.... well i always heard if you put a buffer behind them and they don't touch the pics they will be fine.So mine has a glue dot (acid free) and 2 layers of acid free paper and each layer of stars also have a pop dot behind them (acid free). I just thought was a cute idea to use the beans. Brock will love this !

Rosa decided to use the same pattern paper set and also coordinations cardstock from Lisa's shop for her 2 pg spread and since it worked great for her daughter and grandchildren pictures she choose the title Family for her layouts.

These are some page kits I traded a great friend (annette) for she does lovely work and i just love them. * the love kit and strawberry shortcake came from another swapper* You will see how she has taken 3 different pattern papers that match and created this top beach spread.. and 3 colors of cardstocks.
 this 2nd beach she used 2 beach papers that matched and 3 colors cardstocks
 this birthday kit *i think was a bought kit that she added cardstock and ribbons to and brought it to life, the etc pieces on the right side are for me to add more to my layouts just cut them apart and mat.
 this was a fall swap on one of my groups she made for her partners tag decorated with squirrel/ fall pennant title/photo mat/ photo corners and journal box again made with 3 pattern papers that match and 2 cardstocks

if your making a page kit for the crop in trenton this will help you see how I mean embellished and matted. enjoy

I hope they love it as much as I loved making it.
