More "Clean and Simple" scrapbook pages

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.  

This first layout was for an article about using a limited number of supplies -- same as the two page "Age of Innocence" layout I shared earlier (two blog posts down).  Part of the challenge was that I couldn't use any  patterned paper on this layouts.  I made up for the lack of patterned paper by using textured cardstock and colorful premade embellishments.




This next layout was created for an article about scraplifting.  I was given a layout made by the very talented Suzy Plantamura, 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 version:




Hope your day is "simply" wonderful!
