My Super Girl!

Using two different challenges today to complete this layout. I combined the challenge at SCRAPtastic Club of incorporating some Pennants & Banners and Scrap It Girl's sketch.


I admit at first I was struggling at how I could combine both challenges when I found these perfect pictures of my oldest daughter! She was only 2 years old and LOVED to save mommies day all the time. Love her to pieces. So I pulled out my Scraptastic April 2013- 8 Days a Week Kit and went to work. This kit is full of really fun pennants & banners that I was really having a hard time not going overboard with them! As I started pulling out those cute little pennants I realized that I wanted to add a more feminine feel to my little Super Girls layout. I found some ribbon that I thought would give the perfect feel! Now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE ribbon. I love to collect it! So as I was going through my stash I found a package of ribbon from Stampin' Up! that I'd had for awhile. Bingo! Finally found the perfect page to use it on. I love "aha" moments like that, it makes my hoarding feel justified. ;) Anyone else do things like that? I hope I'm not alone!

Sketch & Little Yellow Bicycle (LYB)

As I was going through my pictures the other night I came across this one of my grandfather and my oldest daughter. I just had to do something with it! My grandfather had come up from Mexico for a visit and to meet his first Great grandchild. It was so sweet to see how much he loved her. He loved carrying her around in his arms and take out for walks and to swing with her in my mothers hammock. Although, he passed away a few years ago from Thyroid cancer and my little girl was to little to remember him. I at least have this sweet picture of the two of them and the incredible memories of the two together.

I used Little Yellow Bicycle's The Good Life pad and Nut's About Sketches for this layout.
