Father/ Daughter Dance

      I chose to use the Plum Perfect Page Kit for March's second project.  The challenge was to use the kit in a different way--change it up.  I decided to use the pictures from our granddaughter, Anna Grace's, annual Girl Scout Father/Daughter Dance.

      I really wanted to focus on Anna and her beautiful new dress which had several plum shades in the pattern.  The base color of the dress was slightly off-white, and the grid paper was white, so I sponged it lightly with vintage ink.  I then enlarged and printed several duplicates of the dress so I could cut them into 1" squares to use as borders on both pages.  The other border squares are the two shades of plum from the kit.  

     I matted the main picture of Anna with olive green, popped it up, and put a plum pearl at each corner.  After placing the off-white linen letters, I added the scalloped journaling box, some silk flowers, and some olive green silk vines.   

     It was difficult to get the lighting right to display this layout, and I hope I haven't  made it too busy, but most of all, I really hope my wonderful 9-year-old granddaughter will treasure it as depicting a fun memory in her life.  By the way, grandpa also escorted her and will be in another layout  in her scrapbook.

I love how you used tiles for the title. I'm sure Anna Grace will love it as a remembrance of her special dance.

Linda, love the crossword style title! Your tiles frame the photos so nicely. The added flower embellishments compliment the floral feel of the dress. No doubt it is loved now and to be treasured years from now too....well done!

You did a great job. I didn't think it was too busy at all. I thought it flowed very nicely and I too love that you used her dress for the background paper.

I like how you made your own background paper with the dress fabric. Great idea! A lovely remembrance of a special event.
