Scrapping for Others

Scrapping for other people is are left with images you may or may not know the back story for.  There is also a certain amount of pressure as you want to leave them with a special keepsake.

Scrapping for others can be totally rewarding...especially when it is someone you have watched grow and blossom into a beautiful and talented young lady.  The subject of my latest layout is a former cheerleader...I was her coach for three years.  She made me nuts!  In a good way...

She was so driven and motivated.  I knew she would be successful in life.  And she is.  A teacher, just married, a great friend.  She actually know owns my first home...I am thrilled to know she is experiencing the positive energy the house holds.

I made this layout about her, for her.  It celebrates her wedding day!  I have several gorgeous pictures of her gorgeous day and hope to scrap them all for her.

Here is my first attempt:

I wanted the layout to be classic, simple...yet have enough bling and pop.  Just like Trish!  The papers in the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found line have lots of pattern.  To make the layout calm, yet interesting...I did a bit of handcutting!  I hope she loves it!

I used this layout for a Designer Showcase Challenge I am hosting over at The Nook this week!  I used the beautiful October kit!  The challenge is "A little bit goes a long way!"  Come visit and play along!

Scrapping for others keeps you fresh and makes you open your design eye differently.  Totally fun!
