Weekend layouts

I forgot to thank the girls who left me a comment saying what patterned papers they like! Thanks so much! That's helped me to put a few new papers in my shopping cart!

Tassy was really keen to do a layout together over the weekend. I don't think we've done that before. When she creates her own layouts she has VERY strong ideas about how she's putting it all together, and she isn't interested in my advice at all. When we created this layout I found that I'm pretty much the same! I really just wanted to everything MY way. It was HARD doing it together! I admit, I think I tricked her into thinking she had more input than she actually had {evil chuckle}. But I LOVE the layout we created together!

TASSY: If you put this on your blog, then other bloggers might say, if they have a girl, "well if Yvette and Tassy can do it, then why don't we"!
YVETTE: Boys could do it too!
TASSY: Humpf, if they were a boy they probably wouldn't want to do it. They might say "Sorry, I'm busy" even if they're not busy.
This one's of my nephew Cooper and I'm keeping this one! I've already scrapped the same photo for my sister. I used lots of old products on this one. Actually, why do I say that? I almost ALWAYS use lots of old products! The butterflies are brand new tho. I got them in the mail today and added them to the layout. Thanks Lea!

Beautiful! Roisin and I created a layout together last year. Such fun! She had more input than I wanted though, LOL.

Love the Cooper layout too. Great colours and I like the vintagey touches!

Hahaha, I can hear you and Tassy having that conversation, she is just so funny.

Another 2 fantastic LO's, of course!! I love your "Collections" of things on these pages too. I like how you used lace and a flower on the LO of Cooper yet it doesn't come across as too girly. It's noice!!
