Skydiving Layout - For Blog Candy Contest, Scroll Down




These are photos of my daughter Alex. She went around the world in her gap year, and this was taken in New Zealand when she did her first skydive. Luckily I didn't know that she was doing it, or I would not have slept for a month worrying about it. She said it took a huge amount of nerve to jump out of that plane, even though she was in tandem with an instructor, but she did it. I gave her a scrapbook at Christmas, and she sat there looking at it with tears streaming down her face - it was very gratifying! Anyway, I am immensely proud of all the things she has done, and the scrapbook is an ongoing project.

For the layout, I was tempted to use one of those cloud papers as a background, but thought that was a bit 'obvious', so chose these circles, and echoed the circles on the paper to frame the layout. I drew the word 'daredevil' with a cricut pen in black, then cut it out. The circles were done with the cricut, or were templates by technique tuesday, which I inked. Louis, you asked for more layouts - this is for you x
