When I began thinking about something of chronological significance I immediately thought of my middle daughter's athletic performance NOW as opposed to this same time LAST YEAR.
Last year was a challenge in many ways--figuring things out, what works, and a lot of not knowing.
This year, she is a BEAST!
This page holds valuable documentation of her hard work, dietary changes, and perseverance to not only improve her performance, but overall health. Asthma and gluten intolerance hasn't been easy, but it has put her on a path of purpose in her life and I couldn't be more proud of who she is becoming as a result. She has truly taken charge of her health and well-being.
My page design is way different than usual. I wanted to incorporate colors from the photo with my patterned papers, and rather than go small with layers, I decided to go B I G with a split patterned background using paper from Basic Grey and Studio Calico.
(For a full list of supplies used: see my page in the 2Peas gallery.)
I was also able to incorporate some fun mint green, using watercolors and gelatos on cut files, into the design to play off of the color of her new track spikes.
I am SO proud of her and everything she has done, and a little jealous that the track star gene skipped a generation with me! ;)
Track meets are long, but watching her run brings me joy and is worth every moment.
Thanks for looking!
