Onto Next Round!

my mojo was really low this weekend and I had a tough tough time coming up with a page to enter in this week's challenge at Project Scrapaway. But I did finally come up with one that I liked, sort of. I wasnt particularly confident this round, but I made it! The challenge was to use words as the focus of your layout. I used a quote from ellie. I was thrilled when I woke up today and found that I made it to the next round! So here is mine:

Photobucket

"When I heard that the topic of this challenge was words, I knew that I had to create a page about something funny that my daughter says. I have been wanting to do a page about her asking me to kiss her boo-boos for a while, so that seemed perfect. Then I had to find the right photo. I took the perfect photo just yesterday! She had scraped her finger on the sidewalk when she was drawing with chalk, and kept running to me and asking me to kiss it. I loved all the bright greens and the red of the slide in this photo. Those colors went well with the bright new Cosmo Cricket papers. But I wanted to set off the photo a little. A scrap of black velvet did just the trick! The velvet is dark and lush with a hint of shine."

Journaling ~
You didnt fall very much early on, but you definitely picked up the 'kiss it to make it better' thing VERY fast. Now, every bump or scratch requires a kiss, even if it is on your butt.

Materials ~
Making Memories paper / GCD studios stickers / Cosmo Cricket paper / Prima flowers / Velvet / Misc Buttons / Making Memories brads
