This is my latest layout layout for Red Carpet Studios Blog. The layout is based on the sketch found below. This one came together much easier for two reasons; one because I was allowed to use words! That and the fact I love having sketches to follow...(Although I typically tweak them a little which I did for this layout). When I saw the stars, my thoughts immediately went to this past April when my daughter competed at a Figure Skating competition. She was our "star" that day because she earned two gold medals; one in Basic figure skating elements and the other in her freestyle skate. I was so incredibly proud of her! Since the competition took place in April, I wasn't feeling winter themed paper....But Jillibean Soup's "Game Day Chili" was exactly what I had in mind. It contained cute star paper that was perfect for my skating star.....And the Jillibean Soup "Soup Staples II" had the exact shade of green I had in mind when I was mentally laying out this design. As a result, a star layout was born! Enjoy!
