3 layouts using diecuts

I came across the March Challenge on the My Mind's Eye Blog and thought that it was one that I should make an effort to participate in. The challenge is to use their pre-printed diecuts on a project. Well, I have a tendency to buy these from time to time, but often forget to use them. So, I pulled out the ones that coordinated with the Tangerine The Sweetest Thing line and make a few layouts.

I thought this would also be good to use some of the papers I bought from that line.... and then realized I was down to only two full sheets left.

I chose some photos that I took on our trip to Vancouver Island last summer... On this layout, I layered the sun diecut along with the layered sticker.

Everything I used is My Mind's Eye....except for the Papertrey Ink button and twine.

For my second layout, once again, I used all My Mind's Eye products, which I had fun layering. Here I used two pre-printed diecuts, as well as some of their chipboard.

And since I didn't have any full sheets of this line left after these two layouts, I decided to create a third layout on the back of this second one. The patterned paper was just too pretty to go to waste!

I used the "so happy together" diecut, as well as some MME stickers..... I'd put the "You two are always together" one on my photo and didn't like it, but when I tried to move it, the backing stayed stuck. So, there it stayed. ;)

I did some pull out journaling, using my PTI Half & Half diecut:

Thanks for looking!

These layouts are all so lovely! I'm always drawn to the prettier papers like these but then feel I can't use them because I have boys. You definitely encourage me to get myself out of this rut that I created for myself.
