Dancing Ballerina

A little girl has dreams of being so many things. A mermaid, a princess, a ballerina or a bride, each little girl can put on a costume and magically become that dream. Our little girl has many of these magical dreams and when she got her first pair of ballerina slippers, she put them on and started to twirl.

I'm today to share with you a little girls dream and the papers that are preserving that dream. When I received these absolutely stunning papers in my design team both care of Authentique, I think I twirled and danced too. Seeing the magic in each pattern, the beauty in each paper! I knew that this beautiful Uncommon Collection would bring a sweet picture to life.

I used some of my favorite Helmar Adhesives on this layout. The paper was adhered using Helmar Acid Free Glue. Then I used some 450 Quick Dry on the chipboard pieces to really give them hold. The flowers got a little bit of Premium Craft Glue and finally the layout was done.Shall we twirl and take a look?

Aren't those papers simply GORGEOUS!!! I paired them up with some beautiful velvet flowers from Maya Road that were the perfect match.

A little Fab Scraps journal tag was inked up using Worn Lipstick Distress ink and some Fancy Pants alphas to give this dancing layout a title...

It is so important to  live in those magical moments. We as adults often forget the fun we could have if we just put on our dancing shoes and danced.
