These feet were made to DANCE

Welcome to my blog and my post for Let's Get Sketchy. What a great sketch we have for you over at the blog, I just loved this one. I love all sketches but as we all know there are those that grab us just that little bit more and this was one of them. I hope you like my take on the sketch below and that you hop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy Blog, check out what the other DT girls have been up to and then join in the fun. The blog has some truly awesome pages to get anyone's mojo flowing.

Now for my take and it is a page I have created for my girlfriends daughter Miss Meghan. I love this girl so much and she brings such joy into the boys and my life. It is great having such a wonderful girl to scrap for and share our lives with. Our boy world has a sweetheart in it.

I created my page on Kaisercraft's cardstock - Ivory and the patterned paper music sheet is from their On Stage Collection. The other patterned papers are from Graphic 45 - Nutcracker Sweet Collection. I have inked the edge of the patterned papers with Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs. 

 These feet were born to Dance is so true of Meghan, she loves to dance and puts her heart into it. The Dance word is a Fab Scraps Chippie. I coloured it with a Copic - Mellow and then coated it lightly with Kindy Glitz - Crystalina. 
On my background I used a TCW 12x12 Stencil  - Patterns with Viva Modellier-creme - Lilac and Kaisercrafts Clear Stamp - Script with the Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. 

Also for the background I used Irresistibles Texture Spray - Gold and Wedding Dress. The circles I created using a stencil and a purple pencil, then coloured them in with a purple crayon. The music note and ballet shoes are from the Paper House Cardstock Stickers Sheet. 

Below is a closeup of the ballet dancer from the Graphic 45 papers that I have fussy cut out. Yes like a do on a lot of my work I have fussy cut. I love cutting things from the papers and they are perfect embellishments.

I hope you have enjoyed my page of Miss Meghan and that you hop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy Blog and join in the fun. I would love to see you there with your take on the challenge.
