This is the version 2 layout for the final round of the DET competition. The photo is of my granddaughter skipping across the neighbor's yard when she was visiting earlier this year, and was taken by me.

I started with a white background, and layered the White Blue Strokes paper on top of it at 50% opacity to lighten it up. I extracted the swirls from the notepaper, duplicated them and added them to the next layer, then reduced the opacity of the swirls to 75%.

I created a thin ribbon from the Blue Doodles paper, adding a border using a blinds effect, then added the ribbons to the left and bottom of the layout and added a small drop shadow to each.

I used the daisy element in the upper left corner, placing it under the ribbon, then erasing a bit of the ribbon so that it's intertwined with the petals on the daisy.

I placed the book plate element under the ribbons, and erased the center portion of the horizontal ribbon so that it wove through the eyelets on the element, then added Hayley's name and the date.

I positioned the hearts element next to and overlapping the book plate. I cut and added small bits of ribbon to the hearts so that it also wove through the eyelets, anchoring these elements to the bottom of the page.

I added the Pure Joy element, a small flower cut from the flower brads element and another daisy element to this grouping, erasing a part of the Pure Joy element so that a couple of the petals from the daisy element overlapped it, duplicating the effect I used in the upper left corner.

I cut a circular matte from the Blue Doodles paper, adding a brown stroke in a color picked up from the swirls in the background. I then cut two circles of varying sizes from the Blue Flower paper and layered them on top of that.

I cut appropriately sized strips from the punched border element to start my frame, then added the frame element. I used two of the small flower brads cut from the flower brad element and tucked them under the frame cording by erasing part of them after positioning.

I added one more daisy tucked under the frame's upper right corner just so it peeks out. I then added the wire bead element and placed another flower brad element at the top of that piece. These flowers completed a trio of elements in the layout for balance.

I added the photo of my granddaughter in two layers. The first layer is the photo itself, cropped to fit the frame after I extracted her out of the photo. I then placed the extracted photo on top of the entire grouping. I positioned it so that her curled fingers appear to be grasping the wire bead element, as if she is using it to help pull herself into the photo, and her feet and legs, which are always moving and are the main focus of this layout, are in the "hot spot" with the rings placed around them to draw the eye. I placed the blue rings so that it appeared that she is stepping up them and into the photo, and added deeper shadows under her feet to emphasize the effect and add motion and energy to the layout.

I placed the journaling notepaper over the circle matte, under the blue flower circle, and under the frame grouping of the photo. I erased a bit of the blue ring so that the notepaper overlapped it on one corner. Then I added my journaling.

I added Tina's "Absolutely Adorable" word art as both the title and placed as to be the final words of my journaling. I changed the color of the word art to a deep blue picked up from the jeans in the photo. I recolored the heart from a pink picked up from the daisy element, then isolated the "A", filled it with the White Blue Strokes paper, and added an outer, slightly beveled stroke in the same dark blue as the rest of the words. Lastly, I added an outer glow style, small size and very low opacity - just enough to allow it to stand out against the darker area in the photo.

Journaling reads:
I wish I had just a fraction of the energy my active, two year old granddaughter has. She can run circles around me, but she is "Absolutely Adorable"

Thanks to Rene and Tina for such wonderful kits to work with!!

WOW - I really like how you have so many elements in here My two favorites are the ribbon threaded thru the hearts and the way your GD seems to be holding on to the wire - Excellent job

Fistly let me say that Haley sure looks adorable..what a delightful photo. as Nicole just said, excellent job on the blending and making her fingers look as if they are holding on...she also looks like she is running out of a door to play outside..kinda out of bounds shot....I certainly think you have a winner here....well done!!!
Stunning page you presented the kits so well!!!!!

You attention to detail is amazing! There are even shadows under her feet! I love the A on Absolutely, I really like the journaling on the lighter color paper vs your first version, (much easier to read), love how you have that paper sort of over and under the darker blue circle, and your extraction is flawless, down to her wisps of hair! This is a beautiful layout, good luck in the finals!

Oh I think I like this one, but then again the other one was brillinat too!!! I love the soft colour papers and the way she appears to be holding on to the wire. I also like splash of pink in the two flowers.
