Paper Plate Pom Pom

Sunday, June 20, 2010

My friend Elia cleared out her dining room and we turned it into our own little scrapbook retreat. Her daughter Elyssa and my youngest, Rachel have been friends since Kindergarten. They are both now 14 years old. We've had a wonderful friendship for all of these years.

Both girls were cheerleaders together for several years. Elia and I are desperately trying to finish up their cheer scrapbooks.  Here's a page that I made of Rachel and several of the girls when they were selected as officers.

I always have paper plates lying around the house. I cut up and crinkled one of the paper plates to make a pom pom for the page. I fanned it all out and put a brad in the center to hold it all together. I also used paw print patterned paper to make the letters and megaphones.

Hopefully I will get this scrapbook all caught up and finished soon!
I'm so behind on layouts!
