Two major events she was involved in last month was a pageant and then her dance recital. Both very scrapworthy. I realized as I was trying to gather my goods to get organized that I have pictures from pageants and recitals past I haven't put into layouts yet. I tried my best to get her pageant photos up to date since they were the fewest I had. I broke out the Ariana paper pack to put a couple of pages together.
I was a little unsure about this paper pack at first, although I loved the big florals. I have just never really used them. I cut the title in CCR from the font on the Artiste cartridge. After taking this picture I noticed I left off the "pageant" part of the title. Oh well, it's fixable :)
I found the next year's pageant photos and since I still had Ariana on my desk, I put together another one. Same paper, totally different look. On this one I used the Floral Happiness stamp set and second generation stamped some roses in Sorbet and Crystal blue for embellishments. I really thought those roses from that set went well with the paper.
I still have one more previous year and then this year's pageant to scrap. Then that book will be caught up. Woot! I love to compile books of certain facets of our life and watch how people, styles, and places change over time. I look at the layouts I did of her pageant photos from 2005 and then this is what I'll be working with nine years later. Quite a change!
I can't wait to get these photos together and ready to do layouts. I'm thinking Skylark may be a promising paper pack based on color. I'll be sure to share when I get them done.
That's all for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by! I'm hoping that things have settled down enough I can get back to crafting, and posting, more often. Until then.....
