Time for some Layouts, don't you think??

I cleaned up my Nook yesterday and came to the realization that I am a paper hoarder - Ok maybe I already knew that but the problem has now reached new highs (or lows depending on your perspective...hehe).  So I was determined to put some of my stash papers to use - have to make room for all the new stuff I have purchased lately!!  Anyway, here is the first of two layouts I completed yesterday......

This is actually a layout I made for upcoming Scrap-Mart.com blog challenge - my day to issue the challenge is Friday so check the Scrap-Mart.com blog that day and join in.  I won't tell you the theme yet - you'll have to check it out on Friday!  For this layout I used some old Creative Memories papers, the new Sizzix Gears die by Tim Holtz, and the title was cut on the Sizzix Eclips using the Rockin' Janie alphabet that comes on the starter cartridge.  The Tim Holtz gears are fabulous!  I used a combination of Copic markers and fluid chalk to get the grunged out effect here then lifted them up a bit with pop dots...
I love the 'graffiti' look of the Rockin' Janie font... 
Next up is a clean and simple layout with lots of photos using Scenic Route Liberty papers and an old Ellison Thin Cuts font called 'Preppie' - my son requested that I use this particular font for the layout...

Thanks so much for checking in today - I hope everyone had a great and crafty weekend!!

Love the pinewood derby layout. After many years, I needed another idea to use for the event - I have the TH Dies and never thought to use them there. Thanks!
