Scrapbook Remix 10...

This is one of the photographs I took at the GCYSA Cheer Competition on Saturday (one of the most horrid days ever!).  Happily, the girls took home the 1st Place trophy.  But the big surprise was when GiGi 'flew'.  I did not know she even knew how to get in the air (she's a front-spot in their 'stunt group').  But she went up so fast and easy, not even the least little tremble - and that certainly was no easy feat holding that trophy.  I asked if she wasn't nervous and she said no, she trusted her friends.  And she made on very beauty 10+foot tower.
This is my layout for Prompt 10, such as it is.  I've noticed that I don't mind my layouts becoming a little less embellished at times... if it feels done, it's done - and I don't just keep trying to pile stuff on for the sake of having more.

Flying High - Cardstock: The Paper Studio; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper, Echo Park; Washi Tape: Hampton Arts, K&Co; ;Stickers/DieCuts/Flair: American Crafts; Journaling Spot: Echo Park; Twine: Hampton Arts; Punches: The Paper Studio; Ink: Ranger; Pen: Sharpie
Yes, I've used the same  'Fancy' Thickers the last couple of layouts... and that's just fine because they are my favorite.  GiGi's team colors are Maroon, Black & Silver - but I'm just kind of tired of that after 7 years, so I used pink/red, black & gray.  I am so happy with the alternative that I may use it to scrap all of this year's cheer photos (oh my, I'll probably have to buy more paper. LOL!)   I do love that Crate Paper black tiny herringbone that's behind the photo and how it goes so well with the black chevron on the Echo Park journaling spot.  Honestly, I just love that herringbone and can't wait to use it on a boy page next.  It's just the little things that tickle my fancy!
I have to go find my car keys (I have totally lost them!) and then clean the garage - while waiting for my next class prompt of course.  I hope everyone creatively endeavored today, in spirit if not in practice.
