Some Hunting and Fishing Layouts

So I've gotten the camping itch really bad lately. Our annual family hunting trip (aka: vacation) is coming up, and surprisingly, I can't wait. I haven't always been the camping type. But it helps a lot when your family and friends are there. And, I get a whole blissful week off of work. Only problem there is that I will most likely be getting up at 5 am every day to go look for Bambi. Eeeesh. Oh well. Beats working any day, right?
With all of my thinking about the hunts coming up, I dug up some of the pictures from recent years and decided to do a little bit of scrapbooking some of our favorite memories.
I used sketch 12x12-58 from Amy Alvis's 4X6 photo sketch blog on this layout. I love her blog. It gives me lots of different ideas on how to position my pictures and get the most out of my space.

 This layout was made using layout 12X12-73 from Amy's Blog.
 I am positive that I got this layout idea from the same blog, but I can't find the exact sketch. So, maybe I was just inspired by it? Lol.

Clean and Simple FTL203

I was itching to make a card yesterday, so I grabbed this week's Clean and Simple sketch FTL203 and went with it. I've been wanting to do something in these colors for a while. I saw a card using them a couple of weeks ago and thought it was a stunning color combo.
I have been putting some of my cards up for sale on Ebay recently. I haven't sold much--only one to be exact. But, I know that it takes time to build up trust and get sales going, so I'm going to keep plugging away. This card will be a new addition to my listings tonight.

Let me know what you think! I'll be back tomorrow to share some hunting scrapbook pages I've been working on. I can't wait til our vacation. I sure could use a break from 'real life' sometimes.
