Turquoise – Layout 7

Authentique lovers, it’s your lucky day as the long awaited Authentique Gathering collection is finally in the house at ScrapbookSteals.com! I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for this collection, with its luxurious tangerines and teals, to create a very special tribute page about my sweet 15 year old Sarah. I mean, not every teen inspires a mother to want to clone and distribute their child so all the mothers of the world can see what a joy teen parenting can be, right? :)

My heart is definitely in one page layouts, especially when creating a page of this type, so this weeks sketch will house a standard 4×6 photo.

I snapped this photo last Saturday as my daughter was leading her marching band at our city summer parade. I love how perfectly the Gathering collection worked to create this layout of my amazing daughter. (Don’t you just love her Poker Face?)

I was thrilled that the Gathering collection worked so well with some embellies that I have had kicking around my stash for quite awhile. I even made a cute flag using a stick pin and the ruler paper.

And of course the Authentique word stickers are always the perfect addition to any layout.

Thank you Authentique for such an amazing collection so that I could create such a special page for such an outstanding joy in my life. :)
