Derby for the Lasting Memories layout challenge

Good Morning and Happy Easter to you. I went to a beautiful church service this morning at the church that I got married in, it was wonderful to be back in the chapel for the Lord this time. I've been going through some christian changes and looking to attend a church that is closer to me on my side of the river. It's been a long 2 years since I stepped into church for a Sunday Service, I go each week for bible study on Wednesdays so I'm usually in church each week. It's a journey, but one that I need to do. I hope your Easter was a good one today too.
The latest challenge is up over at Lasting Memories today, and it is the final challenge of this month. Our theme this month has been "Welcome to the Oscars" and our last challenge is - "And the award goes to..." This could mean sports, trophies, school awards, etc. I found this picture in my stash of printed photos and I have many that would fit this challenge, I decided to do this one.
Elias, our grandson, he is the 2nd son of Albert's family. We were so proud t o see this picture on FB, we are always so proud to see the grandkids achieve in their life. So that day Elias was the star, winning that trophy.
I had inspiration for my layout from Whimsical Musings Challenge #124 - Inspired by stars, constellations, or the night sky I was very inspired by stars for my layout. i was also inspired by my Demystifying Clustering class by Nicole Jones this was lesson #13, just a couple more to go :) It's been a fun class and so glad to be learning so much about clustering. Also inspired by Calvinball :) with that I make sure I add things to increase my points :) and then I get inspiration from my counterfeit kit Camera Crazy. That is what is great about scrapbooking there is so many places to look for inspiration for layouts.
 Close up of Elias and that trophy :) Plus 2 clusters: large one on top and the small one on the bottom
 The journaling spot, love having cutaparts in the kit, they are great for this kind of thing too. That 1st place ribbon was in the stamps that I included in this month's kit. It was done with heat embossing with gold embossing powder. It was s fun addition to the layout
The top cluster is the medium cluster. Thank you for stopping by today and see what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I look forward to seeing what you create this week for this challenge. All Challenges end on 4/1/16

  5. Dwayne and I made our journey back into our church, which I still attend. I am sad to say that I didn't get to any of the Easter services though. :-( Next year! Love this layout, so cute is your little grandson. He looks so proud of his achievements too which he well should be!! Love the papers and colors that you used on this layout. Your clustering of embellishments looks great too. Do you print your own pictures Tina? I love the size of this one. Hugs, Brenda
