I wanted to make a special layout about Tanner rollerskating.  This is his kindergarten year and his first time going to skating parties.  The first party was very difficult for him and I.  Those roller skates are not easy to use!!!  We went out and bought our own rollerblades.  I moved some furniture in the basement kitchen (my day care kitchen) and we practiced quite a bit.  He is now skating without me at the parties and I am so proud of him.  I love skating, but it can be dangerous with all of those kids!!!

For this layout, I used Nifty Fifties for the roller skate title.  I sized it to 2.61 inches.  I also cut out the roller skates but decided not to use them.  I used Elegant Edges for my circle photo mat sized at 5.59 inches.  I rotated it on my mat to conserve my paper.  I welded three circle borders together and then sized them to be 11.60 inches WIDE (1 inch tall) to use as a page border.

I cut these out of black cardstock.

I put the layers to my rollerskate cuts on another Layer and cut them out in White, silver and black cardstock.

I trimmed the photo down to fit the mat and adhered the title together.

I wanted to keep this layout simple to showcase Tanner's art.  The most important piece is the picture Tanner drew at school of his rollerblades.  Part of scrapbooking is recording some of his pictures that he draws me!  What is your favorite non-photo item to scrapbook?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Your next stop in the hop is Mindy.

That is a great layout. I don't do much scrapbooking; I'm more of an art journalist that slips in pictures now and then.
