Hey everyone, Amy here to share a couple of my recent layouts I've created using Simple Stories Collections.  I really love all the collections, but I have to say that the So Rad collection has always been a favorite. I grabbed it to create this layout of us posing with a monkey on vacation this summer.  I started by creating a loose grid, which I tend to use when I am working with multiple pictures.  Here's the layout.

I felt like I didn't need much journaling, the pictures really tell the story.  Here are some closeups.

For my next layout, I knew the colors of We Are...Family would be perfect to document my son's new friend. Let me introduce you to Flag the Frog.

As you will notice, this is a grid based layout as well, but I changed it up some by working with a vertical grid this time around.  Here is a closeup. I really wanted to feature the chipboard banner, so I created my grid around it.

This layout has turned into one of my recent favorites.  Thanks for visiting the blog today!
