UR Treasured

Hi Everyone!

2 Layouts in a row! I know, you're shocked aren't you?! Well, this is one I did a while back and I thought I'd share it with you. As you can see from the next photo, this layout is part of the collection of school photos that are on my living room wall. I took each of their school pictures this year and made 12x12 layouts with them and put them into Scrapbook frames. Then, when next year's pictures come, I'll take these down and put them into a book and put up the new photos. Pretty cool, huh? It just seemed to me like I was always getting 8x10 school photos and then they usually ended up in a frame on top of last year's picture or in a drawer somewhere. I just thought this was a fun way to showcase them every year.
Anyhow, the positively beautiful subject of this layout is my amazing step-daughter, Katie. This was actually one of her high school senior photos. She actually just completed her first year of college and made the Dean's List!! Her Dad and I are so so very proud of her.
The background piece of the layout is from Basic Grey. Other colors used were, Sage Shadow, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip from SU; and a dark forest green from my stash. I rolled the "Forever Flowers" wheel from SU across the ruby red piece at the bottom. The circle design behind the picture was made using Laina Lamb's Digital cutting kit and my Cricut. I also used my Cricut and SCAL software to cut the letters for "treasured". The "UR" is from Little Yellow Bicycle "Friends" Stamp Set.

Ok, I'm off for the day. Have a great day, do something creative if you feel inspired, or just something that makes you feel good!
