This week I hosted the Sunday inspiration challenge at Cookin' Up Creations. The challenge was to use a song title on your layout. I chose the old song "Just Dance" for these photos from 1985, when my oldest two children took dance and tumbling lessons. They're now grown up with children of their own -- who are going to LOVE these photos of their parents, don't you think?

The papers are Echo Park's For the Record . The sketch is from Scrapbook Challenges.



And for this week's reveal at Cookin' Up Creations, I paired October Afternoon papers with  a page from an old piano book and some products from out sponsors to cover a wooden easel frame:




I used What's Your Note stamps from Gel-A-Tins and pale blue ink to add some details to my die cut label and the sheet music. The flocked and sticked leaves are from P.S. It's all in the Details. I pleated some green   washi tape from Cu-te' Ta-pe' t underneath my crocheted lace to add some color.

I finished a couple other projects also for future reveals. Spending the next few days with the Ghostbuster from the first layout and her family in Minnesota, so hoping for a little scrapping time while I'm here.

Have a great weekend!
