I managed to complete a single layout yesterday too:

Sketch # 14
My version of the sketch - it was such a fun sketch I had to do something cute with it.. so this was when Neville got his ALIEN(ware) computer system.. he was like a child at Christmas.. so excited..

Then I completed 2 double layouts..

Sketch #24 (by Creative Scrappers blog)
As I always have too many photos, I doubled the sketch and created a double layout of it by flipping right side by 90 degrees;

Left and right pages:

Close ups of layout:

and my final layout completed for the Challenges ...

Using sketch #13 (by Inspired Blueprints)

We recently had a Pool tournament as a friends house and these photos are from that event.  Neville won the trophy for the evening.. was so much fun.. we all had to compete against each other.. 

Close up of left and right pages:

(Neville wouldn't stop giving advise to everyone.. hence the duct tape on his mouth..LOL)

Close up of elements used.  I had to include more photos so made extra tags on the layout and hid them under the photos..

Hope to get another one or two done for the challenge.
