Scrapping the Music - Tiny Dancer

Yes, that is me... not Clara!
I showed the picture to Clara, Bryce and Brian and they all thought it was Clara!

I married together some new and retired Stampin up products for this layout!
I love the new designer paper
with Elements of Styler stamp set (roses) which I colored with my ink pad and blender pen
I used a brayer to color the Bridal paper (retired) using Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler (new color)
I also used the border stamp from Vintage Vogue to create the border above and below the picture.
I used the large retired twill ribbon.

The Story
"Tiny Dancer"
My mom put me in dance classes when I was 3 years old.  I remember going to Duncan Donuts after dance class. Unfortunately, my dance teacher at the time told my mom that I wasn't good @ dancing and I had no hope.  So my mom pulled me out of dance until I was old enough to decide for myself.  I began dancing at the age of 10 @ a new dance studio.  I surpassed my potential that my 1st teacher expected and went on to win many awards and teach 100's of kids.  Determination is key and good teachers!  Jenn as a tiny dancer!

Hope you join us at Scrapping the Music this week!

Ugh! I HATE teachers like that! I had one, too. I vowed I would never do that as a teacher and to this day, never have. After teaching for 12 years, I've come to the conclusion that teachers who say that are lazy, full of themselves, and ineffective educators!

Rant over....

I love your layout! I bet you're a great teacher, too!
