MB loves Roy

My daughter loves her horse! They are a great team, in and out of the performance arena. This page showcases on of their horse shows from last fall.

Our second February DT assignment included some must haves:

  • Use Lotus grid paper for the page
  • Use Mosaic Moments page pattern 19
  • choose an element: hearts & string, handwritten journaling, scalloped edges, free download
  • I pulled out my Lotus paper and downloaded a copy of pattern 19

    I knew I needed 4 photos for this page and when I found these of my daughter and her horse,  I knew they would be perfect for my page. I came up with my title first. I wanted to use the "hearts & string"  elements option and I thought they would look good draped across the top checkerboard.

    Next, I got a bit ambitious (for me) and I pulled out my Imagine machine (to make sure it works). I decided to cut and print my own background papers for this page. After deciding which colors and patterns, I printed out large photo mats and small squares.  "Measure twice, cut once" was not in my head and I miss cut a couple of mats. But never fear--I had extra paper from another mat and I made use of scalloped edges on my photo mats!

    Once I was done, I showed the page to my daughter and she loved it. That is the mark of success to me!

    Arrrgh! You solved the problem I was wrestling with with the scallops - using them on one side of the pic was a BRILLIANT idea!!! I wish I had looked at your layout sooner! And those are some fabulous pictures your featured.

    Really nice layout Sarah, especially the the little extras in the title! Nice photos too, shows how special your daughter is.

    In addition to your beautiful family, the layout is very nice. I especially like the hearts and string (I couldn't figure out how to use them), and the scallops really add to the overall look. You've inspired me to do some more creating using my Imagine. Thanks!

    Love the photo of your daughter and her horse! The layout is beautiful and I especially like the hearts and string on top.

    Andrea--I did emboss the small hearts with a Cuttlebug and then I inked them to add some dimension to the embossing. Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!

    Sarah, thanks for adding the detail shots to see all your up close elements! Did you also emboss the hearts and chalk them? or is that paper already emboseed? A VERY nice detail!

    I love this page Sarah. The hearts, the string, the scallops - way to pull it all together! Roy and your daughter are both beautiful. :)
