Lotsa Layouts and a Not-So-Scary side stair step card

For the first meeting of the Ebenezers Scrapbook Club we created 2 layouts (4 pages) using the Passages Workshop on the Go Kit.  We also created a side stair step card (a tutorial link can be found under my "tutorials and such" page at the top of my blog.)
I didn't follow the instructions for the Work shop on the Go layouts (there's just something in me that rises up against following instructions, lol)  but the other girls at the workshop did and their pages turned out so fabulous that I kinda regretted not following along. I'm hoping that one of them will take pictures and post them on my Isom Cre8tions facebook page so you can see.  One of the gals also had materials cut and ready to go for making several cards with the leftover pieces (and this was her first time scrapbooking!!)
So first, here's the side step card, using the Hooligans paper and Party Animal stamp set:

the inside reads: Happy Autumn
And now for my Passages layouts:

Another one of those won't flip photos : (

And because it was a can't lie down and sleep kind of week (due to pain from an Interstitial Cystitis flair up) I completed lots of layouts.  Here's two more:

Alyssa and I visited my sister and her partner who live in DC.  We took a "Segway in the City" tour - what a blast!

These flowers are merely punched out from card stock and then glimmer misted with my homemade glimmer mist.

And here's a just for fun photo of something Alyssa sent us from Germany:

I love the page layouts! You are so creative and talented! The Segway tour was a blast - as was the entire visit. And, I received a very similar looking package. I'm saving my baby gummies for this weekend's road trip!

Love & Miss you!

Wow, Marie, I'm sorry you can't sleep & are battling that cystitis stuff, but what you've accomplished in your scrap room is AWEsome! Love your layouts. I agree. K.I.S.S. is my mantra too! And kudos to Naomi for all those creative layouts she made! I need to have your creativeness rub off on me!
