Imagine my surprise when the dance recital music came home and that was one of the two dance numbers?!?! I was soo giddy. And the teacher was quite surprised that Reese knew the song already. Win - win! The other song was Don't Eat the Daisies, a movie starring Doris Day. I am a big, huge fan of her comedies so I was super excited for that dance number too. I was worried that Reese would be afraid to perform on stage but that little princess was so confident about it each time we talked about it. I should have known that she'd feel at home on stage.
Here's a layout of her dancing to Don't Eat the Daisies, from last May. It was punch week on the American Crafts blog so that was my initial inspiration.
I used a combination of 12x12 papers and the 6x6 paper pad from the Dear Lizzy Day Dreamer collection as well as the Knock-outs 1.5" Star Punch.
To create the large star, I punched a small star and then traced it with a black marker. I then imported that image into Silhouette and traced it to make a cutting file. You can DOWNLOAD IT HERE.
I embellished the stars by adding some wonky stitching, enamel dots, doodling, etc. I couldn't resist that large yellow bow.
I placed the photo to the bottom right portion of the start, offset so that I could put the title and journaling inside the star.
Miss Reese is in year 2 of dance and still loving it. She has her second recital at the end of this month and I just can't wait! I'm sure I'll be posting some of the photos to Instagram if you care to see them before they make it on a layout (since this one took almost a year).
Thanks for stopping by today. Now go on and get crafty!
