Cross Country 2010 Layouts

The girls absolutely loved running cross country this fall. (Ansley wanted to try it because her friends were doing it, Macey ended up tagging along, and they both loved it.)

These layouts showcase just a few of their photos from the season. Because of their purple and white outfits, I started with White Daisy cardstock and Gypsy cardstock and B&T paper.

With Ansley's layout, she and I chose to accent with Topiary. She wrote her own journaling. Can you see my "banner" journaling strips? I just made a swallowtail cut at one end to make them look a bit more festive. A few Sparkles added some bling to finish it off.

For Macey's layout, we went with the bold combo of Gypsy and Holiday Red. She almost always wore her Stephanie Grace Dance Center t-shirt with her jersey!

Macey also wrote most of her own journaling. The far right top photo will actually be a photo flap with a picture and my journaling underneath.

I have to extend a big thanks to Coach Lisa for her great coaching and to her husband for all the pictures. I ended up just scrapping the ones that he gave us. (I have tons more that I took, but they will stay on our family archive photo CD. You don't have to scrapbook every single photo you take!)

Both layouts are my own simple design. The photos really helped me build the blocks.

All supplies from Close To My Heart: Be Yourself and Playful Caps (retired) stamp sets; White Daisy and Gypsy cardstock; Hooligans paper pack (Gypsy B&T); Splendor paper pack (Topiary B&T); Gypsy and Holiday Red ink; Gypsy, Holiday Red, and Topiary markers; Purple & Green Sparkles; Red Sparkles; Holiday Red brads

  1. I got a peek at these layouts last weekend, and they look great. I like letting the pictures determine the layout...especially when the pictures are this good. Love the journaling in their own handwriting, too. Hugs!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
