Blast from the past

I'm almost done with the album for my mom's Mother's Day present.  I usually plan out albums from start to finish, but this one I just did pages based on what pictures I liked.  So I don't think it is as cohesive or chronological as my other albums are, but it's kind of nice to get out of my comfort zone.  I get to do some creative things there.

This was another layout based on a Club Scrap PSL sketch.  I think the white photo mats are meant for vertical pictures, but I didn't have any and they worked perfectly for horizontal photos cut into square photos - hello faux polaroids!

I stamped "I like to smile.  Smiling's my favorite." on the top photo with white StazOn.  It was my first time using the white StazOn and I don't think I put enough ink on the pad...but I like the idea.  Unfortunately my photo skills suck and the window's reflection is on the photo and you can really see this, but I'm too lazy to get another picture.
