My Runner and Ryan's Tree

Hi everyone!  I have 2 layouts to share with you today.  Many of you know part of the requirements on the Spellbinders DT is 1 layout a month.  This part of the job has always daunted me.  But I have to say over 1 1/2 years of doing these, it IS getting easier!!  lol! 

You can now find these layouts in the Spellbinders Idea Gallery along with many other DT projects that will inspire you.  First up is a layout I did using a photo of Bill running one of his 1/2 marathons (so proud of you Honey!). The title for this page was actually cut out of an alphabet paper.  This layout uses papers from Kaisercraft.
Here are the Spellbinder dies I used in this layout:

Next up is a layout I made with pictures of my youngest, Ryan, up in "his tree".  This little guy LOVES to climb anything!!  This layout uses papers from My Mind's Eye.
 Here are the Spellbinder dies I used in this layout:
