Manteca- Prima hybrid LO

I got a new box of goodies from Prima a couple of weeks ago and played with some of the new stuff on this layout for their April Build-A-Page Template. I spent lots and lots of time carefully cutting out all of the swirls with scissors and a craft knife. I highly recommend the Fiskars fingertip craft knife, it really did make all of this go faster than it would have otherwise. These are a couple of pictures from one of the dances that a group of older girls at the dance center do entitled 'Manteca' which is a modern lyrical jazz style dance. The expressions on their faces in these poses just crack me up. When I showed their teacher and a few of them the pictures on Tuesday they all thought they were great fun.

I printed the Melody flourishes directly onto the Life Patterns paper, and then cut them out with scissors and an Xacto knife before attaching the crystal swirls.
