Happy New Year Everyone! I took a "Holiday Break" from crafting but am now back at it!! I hope you all had wonderful Holidays! Now that I am back... today is the FIRST challenge for 2013 over at
The Theme is...
"INSPIRED BY A BOOK"
(Be inspired by a favorite Title, Author, Quote or Storyline.)
I chose the Title of a Book called "How I came to Sparkle Again" by Kaya McLaren for my inspiration.
I changed the Title a bit to accommodate the meaning behind my layout. This just happens to be one of my best friend's Sister-In Law that is the Author. Check it out! I haven't read any of her 3 books yet, but they are on my list!! Heard they are fantastic!!
Here is a close-up of the Stars in the background and on the sides and the journaling.
To give you a brief background of my layout, our Daughter tried out for a Select soccer team this year and made it. The youngest, smallest, possibly other bitter parents/players (Yes it happens)... were all up against our little SOCCER GEM!! This layout highlights how our daughter never got down with the loss of a game and just kept playing her best and finally proved herself into starting and playing an entire game and doing very well!! The Coach loves her and wants her back next year.
I am also entering my layout with:
Use STARS on your layout!!
I hope you all can join us this week and show us what favorite BOOK inspires you to create a layout.
Link up with us at Lasting Memories by Saturday 1/12/13!!
