Such lovely colors over at Color Combos Galore this week. You should seriously consider playing along. I was a softie for that teal already....and orange...oh yes, I do love orange. Melon makes me happy combined with those two...and white, that just sets it all off.
When I first saw the post, I wasn't sure what I was going to scrap. I have caught up pretty much with the exception of another summer page or two I'd like to make. Then Lexi got home and raced up the stairs and said GUESS WHAT MOM!? I was like...um...what? She said: "I got to do my FIRST JUMP TODAY!!! with Daddy in the background saying...the horse just stepped over the jump you know...(he is a spoil sport that one) and she was hopping around and jumping.
Later when she popped upstairs and saw my layout with the horse button she asked if I was scrapping her jump. I said I'd like to, but then I don't really have a photo of the horse you were on.
Yesterday we tried to drive by and see if J.R. the jumping horse was out, but he wasn't. So, she suggested photographing her boots and offered to do some journaling describing what she was feeling.
So put this page together very quickly. I had the lovely background piece of paper from my trip with Shirley to Canada. She actually bought the same piece but for the flip side. I had seen it a few days earlier on a blog which you should check out. Anne Pennington was talking about using star burst patterns on her new blog Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge and I had to have a piece. I hadn't seen any wandering around the store until Shirley flipped over the piece of paper she was buying and I was Like OHHHHH! It's called Life is Beautiful/Bouquet of Bliss by Sassafras. Lucky duck me, the edge of it is that cutie pie little scallop that I also used. You can see a close up of it above. It is already edged in teal so worked perfectly.
The Doily I used was one I had been hoarding for a while. It was in a huge bag of things passed along to me by Marilyn. I just added some spray adhesive.
I really wanted to draw your eye to that single photo of Lexi's boots. The point of the challenge was to focus on an object or one single person. I think that the paper and the round doily really does that for me.
My title was fun too. The jump letters were some chipboard letters I had already from K & Co but were various shades of silver and purple. Gesso to the rescue along with an orange Close to My Heart stamp pad and some cool crackle glaze. The First letters were from Cosmo Cricket. I love using two different kinds of letters for a title.
I think I may make one more page today at some point. I agree with Anne, that challenge on Sketchy Thursdays with the Star Burst paper is calling my name. They have paired up with ScrapFit which is also a fun challenge. This time I may make my own paper, lets see how that works for me.
Have a great Sunday!
