Thanks so much, Beekeebear!
I do design all my own layouts, unless I am participating in a sketch challenge or am just really stuck - - then I might peruse the Page Maps blog for ideas - - I usually create a sketch for myself before I start laying everthing out.
I do some 2 pagers, I just entered a 2 pager in our County Fair - - keeping my fingers crossed!
I keep all my layouts in albums -- I recently started using the 3 ring binder style - and really like them. Makes it easy to flip through and look at the layouts.
