Strength and Beauty

There are a myriad of words to describe her right now.  Evolving, growing, changing, are just a few. Her sense of humor is wry & delightful. She is so compassionate, talking to the new kids and inviting them to sit with her at lunch. Experimenting with fashion, she is developing her own style and becoming a trend setter. She reads voraciously, going through books like water! Pop & old rock are some of her favorites but she shuns the latest teen stars like Justin Bieber and  Demi Lovato, prefering the Beatles and Cage the Elephant. Lovin' this girl so much!

Strong and beautiful are just a couple of these words. Photos are from one of her soccer practices this summer. It was so hot and humid that day. She just kept working, even when some of the others were dragging and whining.

The strip of paper at the top looks a little off but it is just the angle, the photographer was experiencing difficulties :) The pattterned paper, banner, leaves and cursive letter stickers are Basic Grey.

"Strength" was stamped with a Technique Tuesday acrylic stamp set, cut out and "Beauty" layered on top.

The tendrils are those metal swirly thingys from Making memories, I think they were meant to function as paper clips. Bling & flowers from Prima. Inspired by a Sketchy Thursdays sketch. I used also used this sketch for my "Fancy Footwork" layout .

Still busy in baby land! It's going to exceptionally so until mid October. Starting the big move on Monday. Our unit is going to be remodeled and we have to move the post partum unit up one floor, yikes! Labor & delivery will stay below. It's going to make for some interesting times. Happy weekend!

This is such a pretty layout Beth! I love how you layered strength and beauty together, and I really like that you used 5 photos on the layout. Woohoo!!
