Today I'm a guest designer and the challenge was to use a star...... hummmmm, a layout for one of our new grandbabies sleeping, or my older one, or kids sleeping??? nope seems too easy.. so I made a Star swing card first. Let me show you then I'll tell you the story but it's not what I sent to the challenge.

It is a card file from Shilouette. I love it! Decided since my granddaughter had a concert later this month, that I'm sadly going to miss due to being on vacation, I'd leave this card for her telling her I'm sure she did a super job and I hated to miss the concert. I used a star print cardstock.. then added these blingy musical notes I found somewhere. I stamped Super from a CTMH stamp set and added a few additional gems. Nice, but it needs something.... ribbon? where would it go? Musical washi tape? again, where to put it... so I decided to leave it alone and I'd rethink my star project...
Now as I flipped through tons of photos I found a Prom photo. Imagine the sky opening up, music playing, etc.. decided to do a layout with it. Now, here's the layout I sent to the challenge.

 
I saw this star flourish in the Shilouette store and knew I wanted to use it! I also found the Prom (it had 2010 with it). I didn't use the year, because this is more like 2002.... so far behind! Anyway, this is my youngest daughter and she's getting into scrapbooking. Well more like, "Mom, here's some photos, can you put them in a scrapbook for me?" There's room on here for her to personalize, the year, names, etc. I hope you enjoyed stopping by today and my chatter! Thanks and have a wonderful day!
