So the summer and lack of schedule got the best of me NOT going to lie, I am still creating and will be sharing that with ya.  I am going to be focusing on my project life for a little bit-to say I am behind is an understatement, (I got half of last year done-NO worries, the other pictures are printed I just need to assemble!) So while you wait for some creative goodness I have a motivational quote:

I loved using the large pattern flower paper for the background of this layout.  This was from my girl's senior prom.  We took the pictures in a large beautiful park-there were TONS of kids there getting their pictures taken.  We took advantage of the opportunity and took several pictures with her friends that were in different groups.  These two have been friends for quiet a while and was such a treat for me to see all the kids dressed up and looking GORGEOUS!
I used the Sunshine Days kit to create this layout-love how the gold just fits right in!  Here are a few closeups:
