Shake That Booty - American Crafts

I love the American Crafts challenges. Not only is there a chance to win some AC goodies, but it also helps me make a dent in my AC stash! :) The challenge this week is to make a layout inspired by music. It made me scrap this little tid-bit of Kira's life that might've never made it on a page otherwise.

This seems to be my "go-to" design when I'm not sure what to do. A picture, a few strips of paper and a title in the "empty" spot. I think it's okay to stick with what works. After all, each page ends up with its own "personality".

At first, I wasn't a fan of the swirl paper that I used below the picture. I had the idea to just cut a little swirl and then pop-dot it to give the page some dimension. I love it!

Oh, did you notice the ribbon I used? It says "awesome" all over it. When I was at my lss the other day, NoƩmi basically made me buy it, lol! You see, I say "awesome" all the time. All. The. Time. So I gave myself the challenge to use it as soon as possible. Worked out great! ;)

I also used the only stamp I use on a regular basis, the dots from Prima. Love it!
