Dancing Divas

It's time for another Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs and this week we are challenging you to use SPORTS/DANCE on your projects.  This is a fun challenge and there are lots of ways for you to incorporate it into your layouts, cards, or altered projects.  I chose Dance for the theme of my layout, since I have two little girlies taking Ballet this year.





This page kind of threw me for a loop when I started working on it.  There were several different colors going on in the photo, because of the girls' Ballet outfits.  I didn't want to turn the photo b&w, so I decided to just try and work with the colors in the picture.  I am still not sure that it all meshes incredibly well together, but it is a fun little girl page, so I guess I accomplished my goal.  :)  I think the main thing that kept me second guessing was the color of the ribbon, because it was so vivid with the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan papers.  That color isn't really represented in the papers, but it is a dominant color in the photo.  I added the stitching in the same color as the ribbon, in the hopes to balance it a little bit.  One of my favorite things about this page, was playing with the Heidi Swapp Color Magic papers.  I added some OA Sprinklers to it and it created such a soft and pretty pastel pink, against the black lines.  I highly suggest picking some of it up, if you get the chance, because it is pretty awesome!!  :)
