Layout shares

Happy Monday folks!
I've got a couple layouts to share today.
Both of these I made with kits from Noel Mignon.
This first one I made a while ago using the Mary Ellen kit for a layout tag game I played with some members of the Noel Mignon message board.
Ever played before??
It's fun!
It's like a scrapbooking game of telephone!
Basically you start with an original layout that gets sent to the first person playing.
That person makes a layout inspired by the original layout.
Then the new layout is sent to the second person who creates a new layout inspired by that layout.
And it just continues on from there!
It is cool to see all the layouts created!
{if you want to play along with us, add your name to the list on this thread here}
Anywhoooo, here is the layout I created this time...

This next layout I made with the newest kit from Noel Mignon.
It's called "Study Hall" and it is designed to be a school-ish kit.
But it doesn't have to be!
For instance, it works for sports layouts too!

That is my brother David.
He came to Birmingham to play in a little semi-pro tennis tournament.
He was the oldest guy in the draw by like 9-10 years.
And then he proceeded to beat 3 guys who currently play college tennis to win the tournament.
I love it!
OK I am done rambling!
Happy Monday!

Thanks so much for doing tennis layouts! I have 3 little girls that do USTA and HS tennis and am always looking for tennis inspiration.

Both pages are fantastic but I particularly love the design in the Old School layout- great color and embellishment choices in that page.
