Today I'm sharing a couple more layouts that I created for Creating Keepsakes' Simple Scrapbooks issue. Going "Clean and Simple" is a little bit of a challenge for me. I have to resist the urge to put more "stuff" and layers on my pages. But I do like to play with different styles from time to time, so I enjoyed stepping out of my box and creating layouts that were a little different for me.

and I was asked to simplify her layout. Suzy had made a very lush pool-themed
layout with a large wave behind the photos. This was my simplified
Hope your day is "simply" wonderful!
