Enjoying The Dance

I got my layout done for the 52 Week Challenge very late this week.  I started it a few days ago, but it got a little more complicated than I had planned.

For this page I used this month's sketch at DCWV.  It's a beautiful sketch.

I also followed this week's challenge at Lasting Memories.  Their challenge is a fun one.  You choose 4 items out of the hat to include on your page....

Thanks for looking. 

The photo I chose for my page is one of Jackie and David at David's brother's wedding last year.  I loved this photo when I saw it posted on Facebook.  They looks so happy....

I used papers from the DCWV Linen Closet stack.  Such beautiful papers.  My choices for the LM challenge was Flourishes, Brads, Words and Ribbon.

I'm also entering this page into the current challenge at Frosted Designs, which is to use a Sport/Dance theme in your project.

The Cluster

I hope everyone is having a good week.  Another busy one here.  We had a real good time at the trial last weekend.  Going to another one this weekend.  So I didn't get my page for the 52 Week Challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin' done over the weekend.  But I started it last night and finished it tonight.

I wanted to incorporate one of the monthly challenges at SnC into this layout.  I've only created 2 pages this month, and nothing for the challenges.  For this page I used 4 photos, which is one of the challenges this month.  Of course I needed a sketch.  I chose Sketch #228 from Creative Scrappers.  I really liked this one and it was very easy to put the page together with it.

The photos I used are from last year.  Willie and I traveled to West Springfield, MA to attend an AKC Agility trial at the Big E.  What an awesome place.  They have agility, obedience, rally and breed shows all going on at the same time.  So much to see, so many vendors.  Very exciting.  It was the first time that Willie has stayed in a motel.  He was a little nervous, and cried when I had a shower.  But he was real good.  It was a great experience.  I'm not going to compete there this year, but hope to go and hang out for the day with my boyfriend.  Here's my page....

I am entering the page into a couple of other challenges as well.  ScrapFit's Warm-Up #32 is to use buttons or bows.  Well, I used a bunch of buttons here.  I am also using this as my 2nd entry into this month's challenge at Scrap It Girl.  The challenge there is also button, use at least 12.  I used 15.

Thanks for looking.

1st Trial

Not too bad.  I got my layout complete for the 52 Week Challenge on a Tuesday of a very busy week.  I really had not planned to do a page tonight, but I was stuck downstairs updating the firmware on my Cricut, so I made use of the time putting a page together.

For this one, I chose Harley as my subject.  I couldn't remember if I had scrapped the results of Harley's first agility trial.  I checked my pages waiting to be put away.  Nothing there.  Then I checked his book.  Nothing there either.  It must have been that I posted it on Facebook and just thought I scrapped it.

His first trial was an AKC one.  AKC is a little tougher than my favorite venue, CPE.  Willie hasn't qualified yet in AKC.  Hopefully next weekend.  Harley qualified in his first jumpers run, with a 1st place.  Pretty good job.

To create my page, I used the September 14th sketch from Boys Rule.  Such a versatile sketch.

I used Echo Park's Little Boy collection.  I love the fun colors and patterns in this collection (actually I love almost all of there collections).

I embossed the stars that I punched and added above and below the photo....  So I am entering the page into the current challenge at Frosted Designs.

For the circle elements, I added tiny buttons.  There are actually 20 buttons on the page.  So I am entering this month's challenge at Scrap It Girl, which the challenge is to use at least 12 buttons.

Thanks for looking.  Time to get the dogs out and then to bed.  4:00AM comes very early.
