Always Be Daring - New Layout

Hello scrappy friends! I hope you are staying warm. It is quite cold here in Dallas - 51 degrees was the high today. A bit of a shock after the 70's we've been having. I finished a layout this evening of Maddie's 1st Roller Coaster ride at the State Fair this year. I really thought she would be too scared to ride (she wouldn't ride anything but the kiddie swings when we were here just 3 months ago) but Daddy asked and she quickly agreed. I could see the moment of trepidation in her face before each drop, but the excitement quickly overcame it and she seemed to enjoy it. When they got off the ride, she immediately started saying, "more, more, more." She is quite our little adventurist!

For the left side, I played along with 1st challenge for the Anniversary party over at Sketches4All. The 1st challenge is to use the sketch below from Page Maps. The party runs through Dec. 2nd, so there is plenty of time to play along!

I also played along with the latest Bird is the Word challenge - Always. I used "Always" in my title: Always be Daring.

For the right side, I used a sketch from Colorful Creations - Member Spotlight. Here is the sketch:

I also played along with the 2nd challenge for the Anniversary party over at Sketches4All. The 2nd challenge is to use gold. I used a gold "moments" title, gold brads, a gold metal file tab, and a couple of gold strips.  

Here are a couple of closeups:

Materials used: paper - Colorbok and October Afternoon; layered stickers - Colorbok; stickers - Colorbok; journaling block - October Afternoon; twine - MME; vellum pieces - Basic Grey; metal - unknown; roller coaster - Jolee's; button - Making Memories; letters - thickers and Basic Grey.

Thanks for visiting!
