Spring Break Crop - Double Page Layout Week

Today is the final installment in double page layout week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces, where each day I've shared a two page layout inspired by a sketch from the BPC Double Take workshop I took last fall. I pulled out the sketches and several batches of photos recently and created all new layouts inspired by the sketches.

I chose photos from earlier this year for today's layout. I especially like how this sketch allowed me to use quite a few photos and still left room for a good bit of journaling.

The sketch also had room for three embellishment clusters. There were so many colors in these photos that I chose a variety of colorful items for these clusters.


Thank you for joining me for Double Page Layout Week! I have enjoyed your comments and will probably do another double page layout week in a month or so when I've completed layouts with the remaining Double Take sketches. Have you been inspired to create any double page layouts this week?
 
BTW - Remember that ladies' retreat I've mentioned a few times? The one I've written the teaching and entire curriculum for? Well, it's finally arrived - today and tomorrow I'll be busy setting up, speaking, teaching, coordinating, eating, visiting with the ladies from our church, organizing, instructing, cleaning up, etc. (Of course, I have a team of ladies helping me, too!!) So if you haven't seen any comments from me this week on your blog, it's because I've had a busy week of preparations - but I'll be around next week to catch up. And don't worry that I might be having withdrawals without any crafty time because I wrote in a session on card making as a service project that we'll be completing during the retreat. :>) We'll be making cards for Pastor Appreciation Month, Card Cupids, and Operation Write Home.

Like how you managed so many photos....I tend to want to get quite a few on a page as well.

Best of luck with your retreat!

You have inspired me to think about trying to fit more photos on a page, that's for sure

Wishing you a wonderful time with your retreat x

And I looked at the layout before reading your post, and was thinking just the same as you said - great to be able to get so many photos on the double page and still have enough room for journaling!

I love the arrangement of photos on these two pages. This may be my favorite of the two-page layouts. Good luck with the retreat. I'm sure you are over-prepared and all will go as planned. :-)

oh, what a great layout! I just started a new album documenting my first year of married life and I needed double-layout inspiration. Thanks! :)

Have a wonderful retreat

Oh, you do have a way with a two-page spread. I've enjoyed seeing these on your blog this week.

I very much like the flower embellishments. Pretty.

Sounds like you have been busy! Hope it all went well. Love this page. It can be hard to marry up photos with so many different colors but you executed beautifully here! It's a great 2-pager! :)

Hope your retreat is wonderful ... and your pages are indeed inspiring. I must get all of this years' events scrapped and double pages will be the way to go. Thank-you for the inspiration.
