Lasting Memories has a new challenge posted today, and it's another fun one. The theme for August is "Sky High" and this weeks challenge is to use one of the following titles on your layout - "Reach For The Stars", "Aim High", or "You Are My Sunshine".
I chose to use the title "Aim High" on this layout about my daughter.
When Abby was younger she told us that since she wasn't very good at sports that she was going to be the best in her class. She was going to work hard and study and make all A's. Now we're talking this started out in elementary school! She stayed true to her word and all throughout elementary school, junior high, and high school, she made all A's. Her hard work paid off and she was valedictorian of her class. She received several awards and scholarships - one being a half ride scholarship to MSU - her university of choice. Her hard work and dedication to her studies paid off, and she got what she wanted! She kept up with the good grades in college, keeping a 4.0 grade point average and graduated Summa Cum Laude, but that will be another layout! If you're going to aim, aim high - the sky's the limit!
I used this older sketch from Sketch N Scrap for my layout. It was one of my favorites and I'd never gotten around to using it.
After I had finished my layout, I realized I didn't have enough room for my journaling, and I'd already adhered the photos so good that they weren't coming up! So, I decided to create a pocket to slide my journaling down into at the top of the page.
This is the last challenge for this month. Pick a title and make your layout! You have until the 28th to join any or all of our challenges. Be sure to check out the Lasting Memories blog and see which title the other team members chose.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
