Flair & Frills Let’s Celebrate Challenge

This challenge at Flair & Frills was a theme, and the theme was Let’s Celebrate! I will admit, I made two different layouts. The one I am submitting is my first layout I made. The second one, I used this thin silver paper and it got all wrinkly and I got frustrated that it look bad, so I went with the first.

My celebration that is layout represents, may need a little back story. Back in high school, I was captain for two years of our High School/District Figure Skating team. I am pretty sure we were the only school district that had a team, but it was a ton of fun! The team consisted of five different high schools combined to make up about 40-some members. Since there were 5 high schools, there were 5 captains, and since there were 5 seniors that had been on the team all of the years, we all happened to be the captains. (I am sure I mentioned I grew up in Minnesota.)

The photo on this layout is the five captains, our senior year, at our very last ice show of the season. (we were in the locker room)


I used the All About Girls stack from DCWV for this layout. Celebrate is from Tie the Knot the cartridge, and the font is Alphalicious. I added little pearl accents to the page since the background is slightly off white.


I hope you like this layout since I have held on to this photo for so long (since digital cameras were not even something anyone talked about back then). I am so happy I finally got to do something with it!

I love this page. The little handwritten memories really makes this more wonderful.
