And still she Smiles - Off the Rails Scrapbooking July challenge


Just a last minute page to end the month! This is the July mood board at 'Off the Rails Scrapbooking' and my take on it. How could I resist those gorgeous girlie colours? 
My little girl recently broke her nose and on Monday she had surgery to fix the deformity.  She was such a little trouper throughout and  never lost her smile - except when she had the drip put into her hand! Her biggest concern was that she would have to miss her ballet classes for a few days and ofcourse no diving either! 
The mood board colours went perfectly with my photos and I managed to make a square photoblock from a montage of 4 instagram photos. 
Here are a couple of close-up shots:



I used the tiny stamp set that I got with my last Studio Calico PL kit to spell out the phrase 'You are Awesome' I think these will become a favourite 'go to' set in my collection!
Hope you have a great weekend :)

Good girl Sophie! She turned a nasty accident into lots of smiles! And you made a beautiful lay out of the photos. Brilliant! I love the background with stamping but the photos take centre stage.

This layout is fantastic Sarah (despite the not so happy subject). I love the collage of pics you used and that fabulous background you created! Thank you for playing along with us at OTR. :)
