Credits: Mother Nature from Scrap Matters
Tip: The flowers on the corner of my LO are part of the paper. You could fill my flowers on the template with paper or color them, but it would probably look best if you deleted them, and filled that corner with coordinating flowers or used a paper with designs on the corners already, like I did.

I arranged the template differently since your LO's don't have to fit my photos, and I think this will work better for most of you.

Keep the film strip as is or fill it with paper to coordinate with your own LO.

Credits: Mother Nature kit from Scrap Matters, except Tut tag which I made from a postcard with heiroglyphs. Oh, and I keep forgetting to say that the font that I use for my journaling (my favorite journaling font, BTW) is Font Garden's Jayne Print.
The bracket is part of the Mother Nature kit, but I created the bracket frame for this template.

Now, here are seven bloggers that I am tagging:
1. Lori from The Simple Life at Home. She's doing a nice series right now on respecting your husband. She's a good friend too--yesterday she watched my kids for me. :)
2. Laura from My Quotidian Mysteries. I'm not sure if she has time to do this sort of thing since she just had a new baby. But, I also know her in real life and her blog is so good!
3. Krista from Designs by Krista. She probably has no idea who I am, but I've posted comments on her blog a couple times and her freebies are awesome!
4. Shawna from Scrap Stuff with PSP. She also has no idea who I am :), but I love her blog, especially her tutorial section!
5. Jennifer from Zaankali's Adventures. She always leaves such nice comments on my other blog.
Well, I broke the rules, because I can't think of anyone else to tag. :)Here comes Egypt, part 2:
Once again, everything on this page came from the Mother Nature kit at Scrap Matters. I promise the next page will actually have the pictures you want to see with real Egyptian things. LOL :)

While we're on the topic of templates, I'm having scrapper's block with my photos from Egypt. In the meantime, I've been "clowning around" with this little kit. It's so much more fun to create a kit right now than it is to sit down and really think about templates that work for my photos. Hope you enjoy this kit, though. :) I called it Clowning Around because that's what I was doing, and the colors reminded me of the circus. You certainly wouldn't have to use it for circus pictures, but I didn't think it would be right to title it Clowning Around and not include a clown in the kit. Also, the staples are supposed to look like Fastenaters, large staples that are popular in the paper scrapping world. If you don't like the look of the big staples, you could shrink the blank ones and they'll look like normal ones.
Clowning Around kit includes:
4 solid papers
6 patterned papers
4 polka dot ribbons
8 large staples (4 blank, 4 with words)
1 beaded wire
colored dot alpha (multiple dots for each letter for mixing and matching)

Next, are two templates that I scraplifted from a talented paper scrapper on BabyCenter. Here is a link to her two layouts. And here is my page that I made with the first one:
A few thoughts on working with this template. I was just messing around when I made the photo mat. I'm pretty sure that you can get much nicer ones, but if you don't have one, you can use mine. :) I used the dots as a guide for placing the gemstones and then deleted the dot layer. You could also fill them with paper or use them to "punch" holes in the paper strips.
I haven't used the other template yet, but I think the template itself looks adorable, so it's bound to be really cute filled with papers and photos. :)
