Christmas in July

I just wanted to show you my most recent scrapbook pages.

First is a layout I created for a Speed Scrap at GoDigitalScrapbooking.com.
Chanin was the host and her directions were:
  1. Pick out 1-3 Christmas pics. If you use only 1 photo, do some type of treatment to it or color it in some way or put a stroke around it or all of the above! If you use more than one, do whatever you feel needs to be done to them!
  2. Pick out 2 papers, 1 plain and 1 patterned. Use one as the background and one some other way on your page - as a mat or border or whatever you desire!!
  3. Use ribbon and/or stitching somewhere on your page.
  4. Place your pics on your page in a cluster (aka overlapping) if you are using more than one. If using only one pic place it on your page angled.
  5. Use something to clip your pic(s) to the page, such as a paper clip, staple, or pin.
  6. Somewhere on your page do a cluster of elements! Wherever you want!
  7. Put a title, word art, or journaling somewhere on the page and then add whatever elements or final touches you think your page needs to complete it!
Here's my layout. Bill, the hubbie, helped me out with it, so the journaling is his humor.

The second one is of my hubbie and his grandfather. This picture was taken at Pop-Pop's 75th birthday party. It was really nice because the whole family got together to celebrate.

This was a scraplift from the simple scrapper.

The last one is for a recipe challenge at Scrap That Idea.
Here is the recipe:
1 paper
1 photo
1 frame
2 string and/or ribbon
Stitching
1 greenery

2 flowers
2 additional elements of your choice

Frame your photo and place it in one corner on the page. Layer the greenery, flowers and string/ribbon. Garnish with stitching. Use only 1/4 of the page to place all items.
And this is what I came up with:
Miss Lillie, Lady in Red
