Joy Layout for National Scrapbook Day

Happy {Inter}National Scrapbook Day!-I know it's tomorrow, but I will be busy.-Scrapbooking is my first love. Making cards is fine, but most days when I'm in my Studio, I'm scrapping. I wanted to share one of my recent layouts with all of you. This is my Patricia. Patricia LOVES to dance. She does tap, jazz and a bit of hip hop. She practices all the time in our garage and during the summer months, she teaches the little kids on our street basic dance moves. She also choreographs routines that she and Vic perform for the family. I managed to capture a few action photos while she practiced her tap routine for an upcoming show she will perform in this June. Yes, the photos are a bit blurry. I'm trying to prove a point to My Man...that I need a new camera, one that can capture action shots. *wink*

Also...don't forget to visit my Project 365 blog for more layouts.

Barb, you aren't gonna like me for saying this (because it isn't going to help your cause) but I really like this layout with the blurry photos (and yes they are blurry-does that help?). I like it because it shows the movement of her dancing and I can feel it...does that make sense?

I ADORE this layout!

Have you ever shared photos of your Studio? I don't recall...if not, I'd sure love to see some!

Have fun scrapping!

Great layout, Barb! I love to read your journaling. The elements and stiching on this layout is awesome! Your photos of Patricia dancing in your garage are priceless.

I like how you added a close-up of her feet in color. You make me want to create more digi layouts!

I love the photos, blurry or not they show a girl full of the joy of dance and music. I just love the LO. Have never visited your blog before, it is wonderful and the way you write your stories made me smile and laugh. I will be back!lol

I truly love your scrapbook pages Barb, your clean style is awesome!
To be honest, I like the slight blur, it displays movement..very cool! Super fantastic job and thank you for sharing!

This is a great layout. I love the papers and the circles. It all seems to flow very seamlessly. TFS.

Patricia looks so happy and in her element here. I'd never have been (nor would I be) caught dead dancing for a camera (well, okay, I think my mom did get a shot of me at a slumber party when I was 10 -lol!). Your LO really captures her carefree spirit, and the 'movement' in the pics just adds to the jazzy feel of the LO -- I'd bet this will end up being one of her all-time favorite LOs. Great job, mom!
