Beauty and the Beast Mode

Beauty and the Beast Mode makes this my Memory Monday layout of the week!

Beauty and the Beast Mode

My daughter Alyssa is an AMAZING girl.  A few weeks ago I featured her in a blog post using the same 3 pictures you see above.  You can read all about her under the blog post:  My Baby Gots Goals

Reflections How-to BookI decided I needed to scrapbook her awesome accomplishment.  I want her to be able to look at these pictures and always remember the importance of having goals.

To jump-start my creativity, I turned to the Close To My Heart Reflections How-to Book for inspiration.  I already knew that I wanted my title to be:  Beauty (Alyssa) and the Beast Mode (CrossFit).  It was just a bonus that the title ended up being a “play on words” of a popular Disney Movie.  😉

I used three different paper packets to create this layout after asking Alyssa to choose her favorite color – Teal.  I translated that into Close To My Heart colors and she narrowed it down from there choosing Lagoon over Juniper.  I needed a little dimension so I added in some Glacier CS.  I still felt that the layout was a little unbalanced, though, so I decided to add in a little bit of Peacock CS.  I quickly fell in love with the harmony of these three colors!  However, my true find was discovering how well the Florence Complements accented this layout.  SCORE!  I literally sat on this layout for several days before the Complements unlocked my creative block and that’s when everything just started taking shape!  Gotta love Chipboard Flowers!

Thank you so much for letting me share a little bit of my family life with you.  Be watching for more personal layouts coming your way in the upcoming weeks.  Have a great day!
