Big Wheel Keep On Turning Layout - for a friend!

 Hi ya everyone,
  Many of you know I went to the Dallas crop in March.  I was very excited to meet so many wonderful people and one the wonderful ladies I met face to face was Elizabeth from 217 Creations.  Along with Sheila from She's A Sassy Lady and Pam from The Bug Bytes, Elizabeth and I all made layouts for each other using pictures that were sent before the crop.  I received some gorgeous photos of Elizabeth's son Nicolas riding his Big Wheel.  As soon as I saw the pictures I knew I wanted to focus on the primary colors of his Big Wheel and the wheel itself. 
 I used Accent essentials and welded the big wheel looking shape into a border.  I used the Hannah Montana cartridge for the title "Big Wheel Keep On Turning" and substituted the O with another wheel.  The background papers where from the School stack from DCWV along with the little blue journal sheet. 
 The yellow was from Echo Park and the black was a Bazill cardstock.  I hardly ever do layouts but I had a wonderful time putting this together.  Elizabeth will be posting her layout on her blog tomorrow.  You can find the layout Pam did for me HERE (which is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING - Thank you dear Pam!)
 and the FABULOUS layout Sheila did for Pam HERE


  1. What a wonderful job you did with this layout, Melissa ... nice for Elizabeth to have it to add to her collection. There are so many details in the layout and yet it still looks so clean. And what a terrific layout Pam did for you with the pumpkins. Sheila's layout for Pam is no slouch either! The entire idea of sending someone photos and a theme is a great idea and a wonderful keepsake when it's done.

  2. Wow, Melissa, that is one beautiful layout. If I could scrapbook like that ... well, I'd probably actually finish some pages lol! I absolutely love what you did with the wheels. You are so enormously talented!

  3. This is a GORGEOUS layout and so much fun.... I keep singing that song everytime I look at this layout! LOL Love the colors and it is amazing that with all the detail it doesn't look busy at all, it is perfect! TFS

  4. Hey Melissa! You cranking out some fabulous layouts! Double page at that! Incredible! Love the big wheel. It reminded me of when I was trying to dance to "Proud Mary" on Dance Party 2 with my daughter and almost passed out! I also wanted to let you know I am offering a chance to win a digi on blog so stop by if interested. :-) Amy
