I was so totally inspired by the team this round (as it was Group 2's turn and I'm in Group 1) and whipped this up on the theme of "All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned In Dance" as I spent my high school years in the dance studio. I think it helped me survive that in my life! I also realized I made my very first official scrapbook during that time too of my pictures, drawings, choreography notes I wrote, programs, magazine clippings, etc.

My Tips for Making This at Home: I found the Glimmer Mist soaked in quite a bit to the cover so be aware, I sprayed mine without priming it in anyway. I mixed different rubons that didn't go together, the faint brown floral Basic Grey rubons in the upper left corner with the Prima rubons.  I love the one-step crackle medium by Ranger, just let it dry overnight for instant aging!!! Check out the forum for more inspiration and tutorials!
