Scrap it with a Song: I Hope You Dance

This weeks song at Scrap It With a Song is I hope you dance by Lee Ann Womack. I wanted to go a completely different way with this song like I do everything else but I kept getting pulled to this picture of Gavin when he was about 7 or 8 months old at Myrtle Beach. I think this picture is amazing of Gavin.

I used this weeks sketch from Sketches {by Tamara}. If you haven't checked her blog out you definitely should. I get a ton of inspiration there.


Background paper is from paper house productions-Pierre Auguste Renoir's Seascape from Micheal's

Flowers are made from K&Company-viola vita from Micheal's

All other paper is from my scrap pile

The flowers are from a 2 1/4 scallop punch

Font is from A Childs Year

Flourish is cut from Home Decor

I used fiskars zingz on the flourish- I got them from Big Lots for a dollar

I white penned the phrase from the song "I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean" using American Crafts The Ultimate Gel Pen

This layout also qualifies for:

Sir Stampalot: Punches
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Summer Delights
Charisma Cardz: Flowers
