Lasting Memories: Create a layout with one of these titles

Good Morning to you :) We have had a busy weekend so far. Little League World Series is buzzing in our town and we are lucky enough to have a blimp buzzing over head :) But then we stayed home and juiced tomatoes so most of the day was surrounded by picking and cleaning tomatoes, cutting, putting the tomatoes through the squeezo and then cooking down a bit and jarring it (34 qts)  for to be used in the winter months to make pasta/pizza sauce. So today is a bit more low key and hoping to get to scrap a bit.
The challenge this week for Lasting Memories is to Create a layout with one of these titles: 
Choose One...
1.  Reach for the stars
2.  Aim High
3.  You are my sunshine
It's time for our last challenge for August... and I think you will like it.  :)
Choose a TITLE (Above) for your layout.  Easy?  Of course!!
You have until this Friday the 28th to join us.  
I chose to use the title: Reach for the Stars:
This is my grand daughter Amber :) Also these are pictures she posted on facebook. I have pictures of her acceptance letter, a semi current picture and here student pass for her new venture. We are so proud of her as we are with all our grandkids and it's so cool to see her all excited to take on this new challenge for her. 
I used my counterfeit kit that I made for the Great Master Forger Search challenge. The stars are from my current month's counterfeit kit too.
I used the sketch #86 over at Sketch N Scrap the August 1st layout sketch:
 I used one more picture so I went with the grid style with the photos to keep that same style as the sketch. This sketch worked out very well for my layout.
 The top corner I included the journaling and used a Project Life card that I cut down for that one piece and my fiscars corner punch worked out well for the rounded corners (almost similar). March 2nd date is in reference to the fb post of the picture and congrats to her about getting accepted.
 My title work :) I used the royal blue thickers (blue and white is the school colors) and CTMH A typeface Alphabets (love this stamp set :) I liked using the blue paper of the map and looks like it could resemble a school. The white stars on yellow is a piece of washi tape.
The photo section includes 3 varieties of paper. Added the gold and silver glitter stars, the metal diamond shape to fill in the space and a really nice touch to the layout. The journey spot is from Making Memories: Design Shop Great Escape layered embellishments. I used white enamel dots My Minds Eye Fancy That Enamel Dots/Shapes pack.
Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner part of the world and hope you find time to create with us this week and link up! You have until this Friday the 28th to join us.
