Ballet Days










When my DD was little, she loved to dance. I decided to do some pages of her ballet days. The ballet lessons didn't last too long but I think they had a big impact on her as she still loves movement and dance and music.

I made the embellishments for these pages with punches and metallic pen work but they still look like they need something. What do you suggest? I thought maybe some metallic pen work on the second page to emphasise the swirls...

Suzanne, thanks for your concern. All is well. I have been away from my Blog a lot these last few weeks as I have had live-in visitors. They have gone on their way now (they are travelling in a motor home around Australia) so I might get to do some more craft. I have plans to make a platypus card for a male friend's birthday on Sunday so I will work on that and post it when it is done!

These layouts are very nice. Such a cute little dancer. I love the punch outs you made. They are very nicely done. The only thing I can think of adding might be a little doodle with your metallic pen on the corners of the paper behind the oval picture on the second page.
Glad thing are okay. And I can't wait to see a platypus card!

Great page.
Love the swirls & photos.
I haven't blogged much either. My mind is cluttered with thoughts of clutter. So I think once my flat is cleaned top to bottom & de junked, i might release my creativity again.
