I've been so frustrated with not being able to come up with good layouts, I want mine to look as good as the designers, but I'm not really all that artistic. So I "scraplifted" and copied a layout that used the kit I wanted to use. The flowers don't really go with the whole boy-motorcycle theme, but I like the colors and it turned out way better than the one I did completely on my own. At least, when I shrunk it down to the size of a stamp it looked okay, and I think I read somewhere on these boards that that was a good way to check your finished layout.
The original layout I used for inspiration is at Moments, by Angie Briggs
I used the SG Old Friends Kit.
