Ballroom Dancing

I picked up ballroom lessons secretly to surprise my boyfriend at the time. But I did not expect to fall in love with the activity. Although it was pricey and big hole in my wallet, it was worth every penny. School has picked up so I haven't gotten a chance to do it as often. However, I still remember the day I surprised him by showing him what I learned. I am still not very confident on the dance floor, but at least I have reduced my two left feet tendency. I picked this one because I wanted to use the making memories metal embellishment "dance", but I didn't know how until I made our dance instructor take a few pictures of us at our lesson. I love remember the first of many events.

Once Upon a Time


For the next few entries, I will be pulling from my older scrapbooks. When I first started, I made them for my boyfriend at the time. I made four full scrapbooks, but only have three now because we lost one. I picked this as one of my entires, because I thought I was creative to use my thin scraps for this layout. I didn't waste new paper to make this;I try to be savvy with my materials. I know many scrappers like to get every pennies worth from their materials. We went to go watch a play at Roosevelt Park, Once Upon a Mattress, was the show that night. I wanted to have stacked mattress as my background. I save all my scraps, even the tiny ones, so I was thrilled that I was able to use up many of my thin scraps.
