Shawbrook 2013

Excited to say that this was featured at Shimmerz, 13 Arts and made the Watch List for CSI!!

My daughter is ballet obsessed and very good at it. She seriously wants to be a dancer when she is older and her teachers think that she has the talent to do it. So scary, but I am so very proud of her. I will never be a backstage momma as I don't care if my daughter is a prima ballerina, just that she is a good, independent capable person ready to take the world on her own when the time is right. Of course when she is focused and self motivated to achieve a dream, I am going to support her any way I can! This summer she did a week long sleep away camp, a ballet dance intensive camp. She LOVED it and wants to go back next year.

I used my July Scraps of Elegance kit to do this layout, plus some flowers from my stash. I did this for two challenges and surprisingly just for fun, no DT work! I really love to make 2-3 layouts from the kits I receive and so this is my second one and hope to do one more.

For the 13 Arts Peaches and Roses challenge we needed to use these colors and use masks two way, I sprayed Shimmerz Bed of Roses through a chevron mask and then used modelling paste and a Prima damask stencil as well, I highlighted the modeling paste with spiced marmelade distress ink.

I also did the CSI challenge which had similar colors this week and wanted you to document summer...well I have a feeling for the next several years summer will me Shawbrook for Aine!!

I used the sketch but mirrored it so the photos were on the right side. I used the colors for the challenge. For my evidence I used flowers, triangles, banners, string and texture paste. For my testimony I documented summer. I did one of my tags of journalling with a lesson plan for one of Aine's days at the dance camp. Hours of dancing!! 

I'd love to enter this into the Berry71Bleu Anything Goes challenge too! Thanks for visiting!!

Lovely Layout ! I'm the same way with my daughter's artistic talent. She is at the Savannah College of Art and Design for their 5 week Rising Start program this summer, one more week to go ! This is where she wants to go to college. Her teachers have been telling us she has the talent too.
