"Talent Showcase" layout

Happy Monday and also Happy President's Day to all my American friends. 

Today's share was inspired by this sketch from Scrapbook Challenges blog....

My photos were much larger than the sketch so I had to be very minimal with the rest of the elements in the page. I was still using my homemade scrapbook kit for January for this layout. 

Do you wanna see what I had put into my kit? Here's a video if you want to take a peek...

And here are some more close ups....

The sketch showed a chevron type of background. I really wanted to stretch my kit and I didn't have any more full sized sheet paper when I did this page. So to maximize my kit, I used the stencil and created my own triangle design using some modeling paste and yellow acrylic paints. I figured that the yellow can be a good coordinating color for the pink cardstock as well as for the purple jacket that my daughter was wearing in the photos.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a great start to your week.

Till next time,
