Here is the layout that was chosen for the Issue 18 publication:
Out of the blue and as a very big surprise Marine and Phoenix were chose for the South African Team in the Nations Cup from March/April 2010. This is a lifelong dream and we are still very proud of both of them. The pictures in this layout, I took on the final day at the team event, where even though the team received a 4th place, Marine and Phoenix did extremely well by them.
The paper and embellishments in this layout is actually one of the 2010/2011 Christmas ranges, however when I saw the colours, I knew that the paper is just right for these pictures. By using the red embellishments, it emphasised the red in his rosette.
The title on this page states “One heart, One soul, One team, One goal”. I only used the One, once and then the various individual words. The four words (heart, soul, team, and goal) went extremely well with this event. The other journaling on the LHS states “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is not path and leave a Trail” by Ralph Waldo Emmerson. I used this due to the fact that even though you as a rider have a goal and a path you want to follow, it may not always happen that way, especially with horses, as they also have a mind and personality of their own. So instead of giving up on a dream rather leave a trail.
The journaling on the RHS says “You never know when you are making a Memory” by Rickie Lee Jones. No matter what the situation, you will always remember and make a memory whether the situation was good or bad. Both the journaling portions in this layout was done by making use of rub-ons (similar to stickers, however, instead of pealing them from the backing, they are placed on the paper and gently rubbed with an ice-cream stick, until the wording/pattern transfers to the paper).
Hope you enjoyed it, the layout for Issue 19 has been chosen, and will be going on sale hopefully next week :-)
