we went to the nutcracker!


This is not my usual style, but when I saw these papers I had to use them for a page about our recent trip to see the nutcracker. Unfortunately, we couldnt really take photos in the show, so I had to make do with some photos that I found online, and one of us on our way there. I also really wanted to include the tickets and some journaling. So before I knew it, the page was pretty cluttered. I decided to just go with it. the journaling is hidden on two tags tucked behind the title. I masked the background so that the outside of the paper is sprayed pink and there was a large unsprayed square in the middle. You can't really tell from this photo, but I went to town adding little touches of glitter on the cupcakes, the flowers, and the blue dots that rim the title frame. All the sweets and pretty accents really echo the mood that I was trying to create, which matches the gorgeous costumes from the second act of the ballet.

That use to be a favorite Christmas time tradition for us until money got tight. I hope it comes back someday. Fabulous LO documenting it.
