Hula Hoop Girl Layout

My sketch with the hoop idea.
On Monday I started planning for a layout using photos of my daughter hula-hooping in front of the Castle at Disney World this past October. My new goal is to complete 2 layouts a month, but to work on one a little each week to help with that goal.

For this layout I had the idea of putting a bunch of hoops in the background. I found a good hula-hoop shape on Lyrical Letters (circle frame) and I played around on my Gypsy for a little bit re-sizing and shaping a bunch of them then welding them together. I should have taken a photo of the mat with the leftover looked so cool.
Yes...All one piece!
I selected a black background and after gluing the hoop piece on I added pink letters using the Feeling Groovy font. I also cut a simple banner off Jubilee (I got rid of the heart at the end) to use for my journal box. I felt that the layout of missing something so I used the leftover pink paper and after cutting the edges off the main black page add the pink to the back.

Hope you have a wonderful week. For those rooting for a team during the Super Bowl...hope they win?? I do not care who wins this year so just off to eat BBQ and have fun with family.
