I love that for a while my mother was so enthusiastic about what they now call "enrichment" - taking us to ballet and tap dancing and gym classes. It was only for a few years, then it slipped down the priority list. But it was long enough for me still to be able to embarrass my girls with renditions of "On The Good Ship Lollipop". At the time I didn't thank her (in fact, probably asked her to stop taking me!), as I was no Shirley Temple, with my knobbly knees, hacked fringe and ever-present fear that I didn't really know what I was doing.
By high school I would have liked to get involved in the school musicals, but with lived out of town by then and there was no-one with the time to take me to the rehearsals. I made up for it with my two, for as long as they would let me!
This week's new Design Story kit is all about the dance:
And a new set of Design Story templates too:
And, as a Easter treat, a remix of some cute older kits with a sweet treat theme:
Paint, blend and collage all without making a mess and for the sheer pleasure of creating. The first "creative springboard" mixed media page kit is in store at The Lilypad.
Use it to create your own art journaling page or mixed media artwork, or a more traditional digital scrapbook page- no rules! It can be as simple as just dragging, dropping and arranging the mixed media elements provided and your photos, or you can go to town with blending and layering.
If you are new to blending there's is a guide sheet included where I "dissect" one of my own layouts:
And, if you love to create with brushes, there's a new pack of Commercial Use OK inky brushes too:
I'll leave you with some of the wonderful pages created by my team and the Pollys having fun with Cherish:
