New Layout - Pretty in Paisley

Hello everyone. I hope this post finds you all well.

Finally, I've started scrapping something other than soccer pages. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy doing the soccer layouts for Markell and Jayla. But I'm getting a little bored with the color scheme. As long as the kids play soccer with this particular league, they'll ALWAYS wear some combination of red, black & white. Funny thing is, I LOVE this color combination. But with 2 kids playing for the same league and 7 seasons (= 3 years), the pictures eventually start to look the same. Ya feel me??? But as I'm sure you all are aware, even though I'm doing a little "complaining" about it, I'm going to continue doing those soccer layouts as long as the kids play...I am a soccer mom, after all :-).

Now having said all that, I still get a little bored with soccer layouts. Which brings me to the reason for this post tonight.

A few months ago, I posted a layout of my oldest daughter, entitled "That was then..this is NOW". Little did I know that that ONE layout would lead to my wanting to do an entire album of her modeling shoots. And not only am I doing an album for myself, I'm going to make a copy of it for her...sort of like a portfolio.

ANYway...enough chatting. Here's a layout I did last night of my daughter and I must say...I LOVE it!!! Once I finished it, I noticed that the layout reminded me of my (current) favorite scrapbooking personality...Heidi Swapp. I think what I love about this LO is that it's classy, simple, elegant and sophisticated all at the same time. I hope you agree. Thanks for looking.

Supplies used: Black cardstock, ribbed/sheer ribbon from Michaels, Patterned paper by BoBunny Press (Midnight Paisley), brad & Heidi Swapp flowers.

I defintely agree that it is simple and elegant. Your daughter's picture is very pretty, so too much would distract from the picture as the focal point. Great job!
