Party for Jon

Good morning!  I'm so pleased to be back to show you a couple of scrapbook pages today!  I feel like I cheated on these though as I used Page Builders from Albums to Remember to make them.  What does that mean?  Well, it means that the layout itself was there.  I just changed the papers, elements, and added the photos.  It took so much less time...fantastic!  I was having a hard time getting started with the pages from Jon's mid-tour leave so I thought I'd use the page builders to help, which it did.  When I sat down to do them last night, though, I had a terrible time so I closed everything up and came back to it this morning.  Now, I am super happy with the results!
The kit I used for these pages (and will for several more pages) is called My Man and is by the Ettes & Co.  While I think it is designed for dad's only the word art would give that away so I'm going with  it.
I just realized I forgot to add an element or two to the above page.  I could go back and add them but I think I'll just leave it alone.  It makes it unique, right?  And, could my smile be anymore cheesy?  LOL!

Alright, that is it for today!  Have an amazing Wednesday....see you soon!

Thought of the day:  Be kind to yourself.

Fun layouts! I don;t think I would look at it as cheating; just using what you have available to make it easier. Why invent the wheel? Great job!
