S.H.O LOAD1012 - Day Two Prompt

I was totally floored to be asked by my pals over at ScrapHappy to come up with a prompt for this year's S.H.O (ScrapHappy Only) October LOAD (LayOut A Day challenge). It took me awhile to figure out what my prompt/challenge was going to be but I eventually decided to do a Starting Point layout like the one's I'm such a fan of over on Shimelle's Lain's site. Her last Starting Point challenge was on my "scrappy to do" list but life got away from me and it never happened. Anyway, here's what I came up with.


The opening credits of this month's LOAD had a very Theatre-esque vibe to them so my added challenge to everyone was to use this Starting Point AND scrap some live event photos plus memorabilia. I've had the programme and tickets from Marley and Paige's first dance recital in my "to be scrapped" pile for a while so this was the perfect opportunity for me to finally get them onto paper!

This is what I wanted to include on my layout.

Originally I went in a very sweet pink, purple and yellow direction but it wasn't feeling right. Then I found the MME Lost and Found collection that I won ages ago and it all fell into place. Gotta love that!!

Here's the layout I submitted.

As I was writing up my post for the group I realized that I'd forgotten to do any journalling. What?! I'd love to say that I have the revised version of my layout for you right now but that is just not the case. I will add it to my formidable list of things to do today and post it to Flickr.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you are new to my blog I'd love for you to poke around and perhaps become a follower. I just celebrated my birthday and am having a giveaway - read all about it here. If you are a ScrapHappy member and you win, I may even throw a little something extra into the mix!! Family perks so to speak!!
