These are the first two layouts I ever made- not too terribly bad, although I did use templates. These pictures were taken at a billiards place/bar when some friends and I went to listen to our friends play an acoustic session.
*Both layouts using "Bling" by Happy-Scrap, a free kit you can download here. This designer has a ton of beautiful free kits in every color and style you can imagine.
*Top layout made with Templates-N-More free template #74. It is no longer available as everything on the Templates-N-More blog is gone. The designer has a new blog, Trish H. Designs, and she still offers great freebies (including templates) on her new blog.
*Bottom layout is made using Lindsay Jane Designs free template #36, also no longer available, but check out her blog for lots of other free templates and digiscrapbook stuff.
