a few layouts & other cool things

Here are a few layouts I did last night with some new yummy paper & Unity stamps.  Did you know they make stamps for stampers & scrapbookers?!?!!  So cool IMHO (in my honest opinion).  Jeanne put out a challenge to create something with the word "sweet" so this is what I came up with.  This is my children and I on Pensacola Beach, FL this year on Easter.  My husband was trying to take a picture of us, but we were just laughing, so this other wise imperfect picture is so perfect to me!  The stamp I used is called a Postcard & a memory, I stamped it and then cut it out.  This stamp is huge about 6 inches or so & its awesome!  The felt stickers are Thickers.
Quick question, how do you photograph your layouts?  That has to be one of the hardest things ever!!  Give me some tricks, pointers, whatever, cuz I need them :)
Isn't this paper fun!  Its from Rusty Pickle, I love that name, but what is a rusty pickle?  Again I used some stamps from Unity.  Those trees are from Giggle Grove, and that cute little title box is from one of their scrapbook kits (can't remember the name sorry) just go to the website here & take a look see for yourself.  I like to doodle, thats what I do, I doodle on my pages, you might not like it but its me.  I find that it fills space.  Go ahead, doodle on your page this weekend I DARE YOU lol.
Okay, tomorrow I am giving blog candy away!  I have HUGE news to share!  So come back with your sugar high hangovers (we all steal halloween candy from our kids right?)

Sorry, I have no good hints on how to shot scrapbook pages. I think you did a great job with it though.

Happy Halloween (love your blog header). Hugs and smiles
