Weekend Recap

We had a nice visit with my MIL and FIL on Friday and Sat. but I ate way too much! Then Sunday and Monday we kind of just hung around and I got some paper scrapping and a little beading in. I think this bracelet reminds me of the beach, I wished I'd had some kind of beachy charm to add to it but I think it turned out OK:

I did 3 paper pages, no new photos because my printer was out of ink but at least they are done. This one is based off a sketch I created for 123-Scrap and I loved the papers but I think the black flourish is throwing it off. I may need to change it. I thought with the rub-ons it would be OK but I think because it's not flat it sticks out too much, KWIM?

And this one is of course in my favorite color combo since I can never resist the chance to use it! It's based off a digi sketch template by my friend Rachael
And this is a digi page I did last night. I found these old photos over the weekend when I was looking for some other photos on CD for Michael. I couldn't resist scrapping these since they make me smile so much! Sketch Template by Jen Caputo, Kit is Little Bug by Peppermint Creative, Stitching and Frames are by Gina Miller:

And that's all I've got for now. Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Pam, your scrap pages are inspiring. On the family page, I think it looks fine, but perhaps if you toned down the black to a more neutral color for the flourish on the left?

Hi Pam! I love all three pages. Isn't that Daisy D paper? I (and maybe you) got it in a kit a couple of years ago and just LOVE it. I think I used it all up. The pictures of you and Josh are really cute. And I've seen those frog pics before - just adorable.

I think you're right that the top left flourish is a little heavy. I think the idea of toning it down is a good one. Or if you can get it off there, maybe doing something with hearts (like you've used in bottom right) and a smaller rub-on flourish?

Love the bracelet, adorable!!! Great layouts Pam!!! I don't give advice on layouts because I don't have a clue. I don't know how to keep a page balanced!=(
