This first layout is of my friends youngest son in Missouri. I love how I could make the arrow with the journaling cards. "awesome" is a favourite word of ours - it is chipboard that I have coloured with orange stamp ink. The dragon fly die is Elizabeth Craft Designs and I have embossed the wings before adhering. You will see that I am also loving Studio Calico wood veneer stars at the moment. Love that Cole is growing into an awesome young man who has a natural affinity with nature.
I think I prefer using PL on layouts rather than using the PL pocket sleeves (if that is what they are called) as I can put photos on an angle, group photos together and use embellishments to tie all elements of layout together.
But never say never, people that use PL say that it is quicker to put an album together. Maybe I will challenge myself one day to get into it. In the meantime I like this hybrid use of PL materials and traditional layout.
Keep warm (or cool), thanks for looking, Margaret
