Summer Scrapbooking

Happy August, Nesters!  Today I have some layouts to share.  I subscribe to the Scraptastic kit club, and this month marks their 4-year anniversary.  To celebrate, they hosted a crop the weekend before last.  And amazingly, I finished four pages!  (I'm such a pokey scrapper.)

I used past kits to create each of the layouts, and honestly, that helps the process go so much quicker for me.  

The first page was part of a Bingo challenge; you had to include everything from a row, column, or diagonal of a Bingo card on your page.  I chose a diagonal (so I could use the free space in the middle!), and had to incorporate mist, multiple fonts, a border punch, and an older kit (this one was from last summer):


I even heat-embossed my title.  Fancy.  ;)


For the next page, I had to use at least four patterned papers.  I actually used five.  Yay for plain-ish patterned paper!


On this next layout, I had to choose a title from one of the Top 100 songs from 2010.  "Smile" is by Uncle Kracker, though I live under a rock and had never heard it before.  True story.


The last page had to be created using a certain color scheme.  This is the photo that we were given for inspiration:


And here's my page:


I have a feeling the color swatches were based on that patterned paper, because it was a perfect match.  


Before I go, I want to share a behind-the-scenes picture.  This is what I deal with every time I try to photograph layouts:


 It's a good thing he's so cute.  :)
