First up, I created this layout of various family photos from my brother's wedding rehearsal dinner a few months ago. It was so great to have everyone together for this happy event.
Everything is from the Acorn Avenue collection, except for the few embellishments and random flowers from my stash. And I (of course) used my Kiwi Lane designer templates. They really are the best way to combine pattern papers on your layout with minimal guesswork. Love that!
Next, from the same collection, I created this layout...
I love that I was able to get a completely different color scheme from the same set of papers and embellishments.
And lastly, I created this layout of my sister and I. It's probably my favorite out of the bunch...
Her face! She is such a goof. A beautiful, awesome goof.
I did add in more embellishments from my stash for this layout too. I love finding those bits and pieces that coordinate with a collection kit and using them up.
I have to admit, I'm starting to love this non-theme scrapbooking. :) I just might have to explore this a bit more.
Have you created any non-theme layouts lately? I would love to see them...
