Here are the layouts I have created so far using almost an entire paper pack. I only added a few extra sheets of cardstock for matting pictures or as a background sheet. 

I started with a template and then found pictures that matched it.

I tried something new with this layout and I love the way it turned out. I coloured in the gold foil flowers with markers that matched Hilary outfit! You could easily do this with water colour paints or pencils.

I still need to add some journalling here about our trip to New York City to celebrate our 20th anniversary. In this picture we are at Tiffany's buying me a necklace!

This layout is not complete because I am waiting for Hilary's ballet pictures. Her costume should match perfectly with the pinks and greens in the paper. I will update as soon as I get the pictures back.

Extra Cardstock Added:

3 sheets of white (2 background and 1 for photo mats)
3 sheets of black (all photo mats and one flower)
3 sheets of sea glass (1 background, photo mats and the rest used in layouts)
