Little Dancer The Sequel

     First of all, how do you like the new look? My blog template is from and they just changed servers so I had to update for a new code. I just love their designs!
     As I mentioned in my previous article I thought the ballet card would make a cute mini album for holding all those dance pictures. (Well some of them anyway, lol).So that's just what I've been up to. Provo Craft has an exclusive cartridge called "Shall We Dance". There are some pros and cons to this cart. First the pros: there are a ton of dance images for all forms of dance as well as for the very young and older dancers. It also has phrases including shadows so this is a definite plus. The cons: some of the cuts are just plain awful. Basically the faces and the shoes. The shoes remind me of the hooves on the 3 little pigs! Sorry PC but they really are that bad.
    See what I mean about the shoes!
       So I got to thinking, what if I used the hide cut feature on my gypsy and blanked out the facial features? Then I could stamp the facial images.  Peachy Keen Stamps has some adorable expressions on their princesses stamps. The shoes could also be colored in.

     Of course the best part is "dressing" the "dancers" and that means BLING!. Pull out the Stickles, colored pencils and gamasol and I started to glamorize these little ladies. I'll share more as I go along since this is a work in progress. So far this album is looking good.
