Target shooting

Good evening and Happy Father's Day to those male crafters out there.  I wanted to share the latest layout I've been working on.  It's from Scrapbook challenges Sketch #481
I stuck pretty close to the sketch other than the 1st photo is slightly larger then the other two.  I wanted to show the size disparity between my second grade daughter and her college aged instructor. 
  It's really noticeable since they are shooting back to back. If I were to have cut the photo to 3.5 inches I would have lost some of Killeen's arm span perspective.  Actually everyone was bigger then Danielle as she was the only second grader in a middle school aged class/club.

 When I started pulling paper for this layout I realized that I have been gravitating towards kits as all the colors and patterns work well together, so I got a little derailed in my creative process as I ruthlessly purged my paper, stickers and embellishments.  If I did not absolutely love the pattern/ color or thought I'd use it out it went.  I have a nice pile of stuff for our up coming yard sale for sure.
I also spent sometime organizing embellishments and stickers that I had previously separated out form the paper packs I bought from Creative memories.  Why parcel it out to all these different containers and binders if they are intended to be used with the coordinating papers.  I think I'm going to try my hand at making a few counterfeit kits too.
In the meantime I finished this layout using Creative memories "A year to remember paper pack and embellishments"  I did add the turquois washi tape, blue pearl dots, solid colored cardstock for the title and a CM journal card not from the set, but everything else came from my kit if you will

I like how it turned out and how much faster I scrap when I'm not digging for the right combination of papers and bling.  Thanks for reading this far and I hope to be back soon.  We'll see as I go to my summer work schedule at the pool.  Yikes 7:30am classes.
Better get to bed
