Additional Layout: (directions on my website)

Chase Your Dreams Layout by Wendy KesslerOn this first layout, I changed it a bit to fit my pictures, eliminating some and adding a photo mat to my focal picture.  Tip: Don’t worry about being perfect with the random stamping on the Sorbet Cardstock.  It doesn’t line up like you might think but it looks just fine once finished. You are My Happy Place Layout by Wendy KesslerFor this second layout, I added a photo in place of the journaling and again changed the layout a bit to fit my photos.
