Ballroom Dance Partners

I'm fairly certain that the experience of Ballroom Dancing wasn't as pleasant for the kids as it was for the grown-ups to watch, but it is offered as part of the curriculum in 4th and 5th grade at our elementary school thanks to a grant.  All year the kids worked on their Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, and other ballroom dances with their dance coach and the last class the parents were invited to watch.  They all did very well, and in fact, kids from our school won the 1st place trophy in the Ballroom Dance Competition that was held for our cluster of schools!  I was so excited to see the Ballroom Dance paper in the new release and got right to work to record this momentous (and sweaty palmed) occasion!
Can I just say that I love how well all the papers work together-again?  How perfectly the greens in the soccer paper match the dancing paper is no accident!  I also think one of the things that allows all of these papers to work so well together is the addition of black cardstock to help the photos "pop"...try adding some black cardstock to your next layout and see what happens!

Suzanna Lee shares a wonderful Soccer layout!

We have been very blessed to have some amazing Guest Designer the past several months and Suzanna Lee our guest for July is no exception.  I love all the layering she did on this layout.  She created the perfect backdrop for pictures of her daughter.  I love all the stitching and the "ribbon" she created out of the blue patterned paper.  Excellent job!!

Here is a close up of some of her work.
