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


  1. Nice layout Donna. Well done on the handmade flourish too, I never would have guessed it was handmade! Belated congratulations to Tahlia too, on what looks like a pretty ordinary (rainy) day.

  2. WOW those flourishes look good, only just read my mag the other night and thought that looked like a cool idea. Thanks for playing at Scrap the girls this month, hope to see you back again xx

  3. I love the star border used on your layout. Stars for your cross country star - perfect. Your page is beautiful Donna, glad you got some time to join in on the challenge. Thanks for playing along with us at Scrap The Girls.
