Just get up and DANCE...

Well dancing is a bit easier for some than others.
I have never been  too good at dancing.  Even though I do love to
dance I have to say I have no rhythm. So I am definitely one of those people you
see on the dance floor that you kinda giggle at.

Hey all I need is a little rhythm.



Linking this photo to Texture Tuesday!
I added Kims texture "Chase" at 75%.

Oh Well we all can't be dancers "right".

So I decided to do a journal page on that very subject.
And tie it into our challenge this week over at City Crafters.
Kirsty is our host and is asking us to use a ballerina on our project.




Not only do I need some practice with my dancing I need some
practice with my lettering..  I was going to cut and paste some
lettering and then I changed my mind..  Thought I would just write it out.
It is a journal after all.



Here is my ballerina I added from this weeks sponsor.



And here is my finished page.. I had fun adding all the doodling.
The background was done with watercolors.

So I also did another page..  Not too crazy about it, but maybe
I will get up the guts to show you it later..
It also has a ballerina on it..


To see all the details on this challenge you can hop on over
to City Crafters Challenge Blog

You still have a chance to win some images from this weeks sponsor.




I just wanted to say 
THANKS SO MUCH
for all the kind comments on my 
scavenger hunt post. You are all so kind and thoughtful.
I really do appreciate it.. 

Hugs~

I love the green in your flower photo Linda - and then the red/pink pops right out. Fantastic!

Your photo is amazing, love the softness but also the intensity of the colours. Love your journal page, and your writing is great, hand writing, no matter how good or bad you think it is, is what makes journal pages so unique and interesting. xx

Love your vintage ballerina!

Has my passion for pink lately rubbed off on you? LOL I like all the doodling and the background you've created. I really need to work on my journal. Being a perfectionist really hinders me with just letting go on a page. grrrr Yours is beautiful! Hugs!
