Scrap the Girls - August

I decided to have a go at a challenge (its been a while), so I picked Scrap the girls. The criteria this month was to use stars on your layout. So I have finally scrapped this photo of Tahlia from her 1st State Cross Country for school - which was last year! (she finished 19th!)

I have used a red star lace cutout, overlayed ontop of a red Fancy Pants transparency.  I have used a few splashes of glimmermist, burdies embellies zipper flower, Ah Scrap Kraft doily (split in 2), book page, prima flower centres, washi tape, flowers, and I made my own pearl flourishes using some liquid pearls (a tutorial was in the current SBM and I loved the idea so gave it a go) quite happy with the overall result.
thanks for looking

BW2 - August

Another month already!!! This year is flying by far too quickly.....
Here is my August layout for the BW2 challenge: This month the colours were, black + aqua and pink. I thought these colours were perfect for this beach photo of Tahlia, as the colours of the photo were also similar.

I have used some striped washi tape, crochet doily from the Chip Chop Shop, heart pop by Rainbow Splendour, bella bling, resin flower, raffia flower, various pp and a Jenny Bowlin bingo card.
Here is the inspiration image to help you along this month
Thanks for popping by and looking,
