Layout share: Solo Fest

Oh, my goodness...you cannot imagine how many pages I must make before graduation next May. :-) I'm plugging away at it, but I must pick up the pace! I guess there's nothing like a deadline to enhance one's productivity!

Here's a recent one covering our band/vocal solo and ensemble festival. I've actually used this design or a variation of it a couple of times now. It's loosely based on a sketch from Cathy Zielske's online class, Design Your Life. I love it when I can reuse a design! And it's a red-letter day when I use a something (other than cardstock!) from my stash. In this case, I used three somethings I need to use a LOT more of: patterned paper, Thickers
, and an American Crafts tag. The paper is an older Paper Preserves sample I picked up somewhere, and I just love it. Although it doesn't show so much in the photo, in real life, the green is a great match for DD's top.

Eventually I will put all of these recent layouts into three-ring binders. My plan at this point is to incorporate certificates, judging sheets (like those she received at this festival), and other awards into the album by slipping them into 8.5x11 page protectors. That way, if DD wants to pull any of them out for her graduation open house, it will be easy to do so.

sounds like a plan.

It sounds like you know what you need to do, which is a good part of the "battle". I think you should go back and do her baby pictures before graduation too! Great page BTW

That is pretty paper & I like the button. By graduation...maybe a goal like that would get me moving. At least I'm TAKING pictures again, but I haven't scrapbooked in a good couple years. I do have all those certificate things for each year paper clipped together with their report cards though! :-)

It'll be a super project when it's finished!
