My Mind's Eye Layout: Paper Crafter's Corner ChallengeWeek #68

I really went all out to make this fabulous layout! These pics are of my daughter's 5th grade project in which she was to choose an "American Hero" she wanted to do a report on. She chose Amelia Earhart. She, and another lady hand sewn an aviator's cap, and matched up odds and ends to make her costume. She really enjoyed that and put on quite a show.
  The pattern papers I used are mostly My Mind's Eye Lost & Found, and then the small pieces showing on the top and bottom is Foofala with vintage air planes. I felt it would refer to the composition. Green sparkling tulle, Prima flowers, Tim Holtz bingo pieces and ticket, metal corner on the upper left corner on the left page, and a few pearl swirls and added pieces through out. And yes, I used my Cricut with my Gypsy to make another banner which is attached to a black plastic straw with brads! Ha! So clever, I think!!
Here is the inspiration piece:

  1. Love your work here! And what an accomplishment to get TWO great pages done. Hope this finds you feeling better!

  2. It's good to see you joining the fun at PCC this week. Your layout is awesome and what a great idea to get a family picture with DD in costume. I bet you DD really likes being in 5th grade with this creative teacher.
