Dance Layout for Scrapbook Sketch Challenge

I have another scrapbook page to share featuring my youngest daughter's Lyrical dance photo.  Her routine for this year's dance recital was breath-taking!  Alaina is in the most wonderful dance program.  It's called Bella School of Dance and the owner Anna Kate's mission is to teach dance in a wholesome and age-appropriate manner.  Her dance school is highly relational and non-competitive.  The recitals are so moving and expressive!

This Share What You Love DSP just retired but I thought it went too perfectly with Alaina's costume not to use it.

I added a TON of Basic Rhinestones to my scalloped circle die.  I had just half as many stuck on originally, then took a deep breath and added the other half - and I loved it!  The sentiment is from the (very) retired En Suite stamp set.

Check out the title!  I stamped it in alternating colors of Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive.  I wanted it to stand out more so I added a small strip of Vellum beneath it and some pearls to the letters.  Tip: Remember, you can use Stampin' Blends markers to color your pearls to make them any shade you want!

I made this layout for The Studio Challenges June sketch challenge.  I almost always use a sketch when I scrapbook because it allows me to focus on the fun part - mixing and matching colors and patterns, journaling, and adding embellishments.

If you would like a copy of the NEW Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and you don't already have a demonstrator you love, send me an email at [email protected]  I'd love the opportunity to earn your business!
