Love Dancing layout

Hi Bloggers,

It's been a while since I blogged as we've just moved house (I think that's quite a good excuse!!).
We're almost sorted out now so I'd like to share a layout that I made when I came across a photo of my dad dancing as a child.

The large octagon frame was designed on my Gypsy and cut using my Cricut.

I used the Cricut Pens to draw the letters before cutting them out, so they had an outline.
Then I adhered them to their shadow.
Finally I embossed them with a script design and applied Distress Ink to the embossed areas.

I used ribbon to tie around the octagon frame, the letter "I" and to thread through the ribbon border piece.
Two colours of Distress Ink were used to colour the ribbon.
The ribbon border piece was designed on my Gypsy.

I used a corner from the Heritage Cricut cartridge to cut the corner embellishments.

I had a lot of fun designing a dancing theme layout for a boy - it was a nice change from the usual pink that's so popular for dancing layouts.

I hope you like it too.
Thanks for stopping by.
