Scrap the girls - September

Another month and another challenge for Scrap the Girls. I've managed 2 months in a row!
This month was 'Sports, or outdoor activities'
So I finally scrapped this professional photo of Tahlia at her first Zone little athletics carnival
way back in 2009!  She did so well, finishing in top 3 of her 4 events and so becoming
addicted to this sport!!
So thats what inspired the title.
I was aiming for this page to be all about the photo, so didnt add too many
embellies to take away from it.
 Here is a close-up of the bling
Items used: cardstock, overlay, pp: Stampin Up, Teresa Collins, Bo Bunny, Pink Paislee, Fiskars punch,
washi tape, MME pearl flourish, Burdies handmade flower, letters: Basic Grey &
doodlebug design, October Afternoon journal spot.
