The Dance

Possibly a new favourite?  What do you think?

All the papers and washi are from the June Like For Ever scrapbooking kit, the sequins are from the March or April kit.  The lace is from Crafty Ribbons - you can find the grey here and the lilac  here.  The heart string is a basics by DoCrafts, and was a present from my brother and sister-in-law.  I coloured it all up with my blue, green and pearl ink sprays - there is a couple of meters left over.  I'm thinking up something special to use it on!

There is a seam binding ruffle too.  It got covered up almost completely but it is under there adding dimension to the page.  I am trying to get better with covering things up.  I watch people creating on youtube and cringe when they cover up what I consider the best part, but it always ends up looking great.  I just need to relax a bit I think!

I thought the tiny hint of lilac went brilliantly with the softest greens and grey colour palette.

The photos are of my beloved Nephy Dude dancing.  The journalling are the instructions if you fancy joining in!! :)

June Kit tally: 4 (and 1 card)


  1. I LOVE what you did with the heart string and thought you had stitching it together yourself! (should have kept it quiet!) The ribbon lace adds a lovely soft touch without being girly and I tried the dancing, quite successful and thinking of auditioning on X Factor, will of course credit your 'Nephy Dude' with the idea!

    1. Hehe! We'll start a craze... the Macarena, Gangnam Style, the Nephy Dude!! :D

  2. very pretty
    have a great day

  5. Beautiful layout and such cute photos!!

  6. Beautiful page, loving the white space

  7. This is beautiful! I love all the layers and texture. And these stitched hearts are fabulous!

  8. Beautiful page. A nice combination of colours, lovely lace and the string of hearts is beautiful. I think I could learn a dance move or two from your Nephy Dude. Like you, I'm not keen to cover up pretty stuff - seems such a shame. Elizabeth xx

  9. Duh . . . definitely a favorite!!
