Gymnastics layout "Beaming" is complete!

Hello to all! It is Sunday evening and I have FINALLY completed this layout , that started out to be a very simple layout , but ended up being a challenge for me! I started with the CTMH Outdoor Denim and Sunny Yellow cardstock , and added a print from some of my hundreds of sheets of paper that I have stocked. I got the pictures matted with CTMH White Daisy , something that I could not ever be without ! Then came the difficult part, once I decided on the Title , I had to come up with some Pretties to decorate the page and jazz it up! For those of you who know me , and have seen my scrapbooking room , one would think that I should have enough stuff to not have to shop for anything for a number of years . BUT , the perfectionist in me reared her ugly head - and just had to go shopping for "THE" perfect thing . After a trip to Archivers and then another one to Michaels - I still didn't have just what I was looking for , but came home with more bags of goodies that I am sure that I will "NEED" someday! Of all places , I finally found the daisy ribbon at Walmart , got that on last evening , and just after midnight last night , decided that I needed to add another color. After Joe and I went to the movies "Nim's Island" we stopped at Archivers once again and I found some really cool chipboard shapes that I thought I might be able to use ink , but the cashier told me about the acrylic paints . So, you know me , got to have the latest and greatest ! Came home and painted the little daisy shaped in red , added some little yellow buttons , which I felt was a very cute color addition . Then after all of that there was a whole in the middle by the picture where Alyssa has her hands on her hips , so I added the arrow . Then , after all that , I thought , wouldn't it be cute to stamp the word smile and attach it to the arrow ! That also was from my CTMH collection of stamps , from the "Solo" S stamp set. Now, finally , I feel like I have a completed layout ! I hope that Pam likes this one as much as her other ones. Very anxious to get started on something new again!

I also had another idea today , to do some of the framed 12X 12 layout pages of peoples pets that they can hang on the wall and enjoy ! I am trying to think of other things to grow my business for people who just don't have an interest in investing the time and energy in a complete scrapbook! I would appreciate it if you could give suggestions as well!

Please tell all of your friends, I have lots of goodies here in my scrapbook room just waiting to jump on a page!

Outstanding Student - With words from Mom!

This is one of the layouts that I have been working on for Pam. I just couldn't figure out just what to do to dress this one up , so today I added eyelets to the green printed paper , and added ribbon to the title and to the CTMH dimensional elements that I used CTMH Spring Iris Ink with my dauber. I also added a few other chipboard elements that I had with a set from my scrapping room! Then I got the words from Mom about the events of the day , and it made it just perfect - and then I had to add the little heart to make it that much more special! Enjoy! Thanks for visiting!
