In love with Gymnastics!

Hope started gymnastics tonight and had a BLAST!  I knew she would.  Joe was home with her today and she started going through her leotard selection process about three hours before class started.  I met them at the gym, but class had already started, so she finally noticed me looking through the window and was so excited to see me there.  She started waving and and went up and told her teacher I had made it.  It was pretty cute, but I had to hide behind the door so she would start paying attention again.  So I started peeking through the door window.  She did a really good job and had a lot of fun!  I think we are going to have a fun year of gymnastics!

Ok, folks, I have decided to jump into some scrapbook online challenges.  So here is my first go round...

On the Moxie Fab World blog, there is a weekly challenge called Tuesday Trigger.  The first one I am going to participate on is based on this photo.

There are so many beautiful elements and colors in this photo that can inspire so much inspiration.

I made a layout (will share that tomorrow) using the new Authentique Paper lines:  Blissful and Uncommon.  They actually blend together very nicely even though the papers are from different lines and are based on almost all the colors from the photo above.

So after I completed the layout I used the scraps to make several cards.  All of them have the colors inspired by the Tuesday Trigger photo above.  Love it!

These are a few of my favorites...

This card is not something I would normally consider a favorite.  I have troubles creating cards using bolder pattern papers.  So I kept the design simple and added an additional pop of the pink color to further compliment the yellow and greys in the paper.

If you are interested in throwing your projects into the challenge, check out the Moxie Fab World.

And check back over the next few days as I have several more cards and a layout to share with you using the same paper lines, colors and inspiration from the Tuesday Trigger photo.  Who knew you could get all that inspiration from just one photo.

Have a great night!
