Now on with the hop!

Today, I decided to show off some quick layouts I put together. I have enough paper to do a thousand layouts but I'm not the layout type of personality. I have a friend who has been motivating me and we've been getting together on the weekends to scrapbook. I like simple easy layouts and found these to be just that.

The first two takes a solid piece of cardstock and then you cut up decorated paper in ribbon tail cuts and glue it on in a pattern that suits you. I found a similar design in a Google search and thought it was something I could do and I did!

Now for the second layout, I wanted something whimsical and cute. Using polka dots is the key to this look even though this is another simple layout. I have a Cricut and Cameo but decided to use up some of the stickers I have collected over the years.

Thanks for stopping by today and I can't wait to see you again tomorrow!

Here is today's hop line-up in case you get lost along the way.
