One beautiful Smile/ Scrap Muse Design Team

I love Roxy's smile, she is just one of the happiest people that you will ever be around.
I left the journaling blank so that she can add details that she remebers about this day.

Design Team Scrap Muse/ September Collection

This collection of papers is from the Scrap Muse kit.
Their kit is a wonderful collection of papers and the add on are wonderful.
I have to say that they are a great kit company and the price is unbelievable.
Close up of Brittany, I love these papers, finally found some colors that would work with her uniform colors.
Intentionally left the journaling open so that she or her mother can add their own though on this photo. TFL

Brittany 6th grade cheer leader photo/ Scrap Muse design team

Brittany is my sisters middle child, she cheers for a middle school team in Ohio. Near you Valerie.
I stitched around the page with my sewing machine and then distressed the paper edges with my scissors. ( guess I need to invest in a Tim Holts distresser).
The flower is two pieces of paper torn is a (sort of) circle. One of the pieces of the paper is torn smaller than the other. I then wet the paper and scrunched them. I microwaved them to dry them quickly and then glued the smaller piece on top of the larger, then add the pearl.
The brown diamond paper is accordion folded and then glued on top the paper. I used two different pieces and attached them under the flower. TFL

Scrap Muse September Kit

This is a layout that I completed using the September Scrap Muse kit. I love this paper combination. I cut the center out of the tan piece of paper and laid it over the coral paper. This months kit had beautiful embellishments, I think the black trim really makes it pop off the page.
The photo is of me with my dad on my 1st birthday. This was taken at my parents 1st home in Lake City. I do not really remember my bed room in that house, but I remember the back yard and my friends that I walked to school with. We moved from this house when I was in the 2-3 grade. TFL
