Tiny Dancers

Happy Sunday friends,

I've got sketch #260 to share with you today.  This photo was taken last Spring at the girls' Dance Recital, just before Eden and her class took the stage for their Ballet performance.  I love how attentive the girls are being with their assistant teacher Miss Melissa.  The all look so beautiful and grown up in their costumes.
Journaling reads "It has been so wonderful watching the girls transform into beautiful ballerinas during their short time at Kick It Dance Studio June 2013"
Here is Jenny's awesome sketch
Fun sketch right?  Initially I wanted to use my Cameo to cut the squares out of my background.  I decided there would be more dimension to the layout, however if I simply cut the squares out of patterned paper and stitched them to the layout instead.  

Here's a close up of that look.
It's been pointed out to me that it looks as though the title reads "Tiny Dangers"  Be assured there is nothing dangerous about these cutie pies.  The title in fact reads "Tiny Dancers".  Not sure how I missed that, but oh well it's simply a funny letter/paper placement. 
I used my Amy Tangerine stencil to add some hand stitching here.

I really felt the it was missing my own personal touch with just the triangles and title, so I added a few more embellishments around the photo.
