Dancing at the Ceilidh

I have been working hard this week with layouts for the next ScrapPack.  I decided with all the left over bits and bobs to create another layout and share that with you so you can get an idea of the ScrapPack without giving away the layouts that will be in the next newsletter.

We were invited to celebrate a friends 60th birthday at a wonderful Ceilidh.  Oh my goodness my girls and I had not been to a Ceilidh before (and for those of you not sure what this is, it is an Irish/Celtic social dancing.)
Wow, it was full of energy, joyful laughter, clapping and singing.  It was an amazing night, I haven't been to something as fun as that since I was a kid. Both Grace and Melissa were on the dance floor pretty much all night.  I sat on the sidelines taking photos, clapping and whooping with the best of them.

I felt that papers from the Authentique Irresistible range were perfect for this layout.  Here is a close up of a couple of elements:

For both of these I have cut out some flowers and layered them.  One was layered over some bling swirls I found in my stash.  The second I just layered and added some paper 'ribbons' underneath.  I also added a bling to the centers of each flower.

I also hid a journaling block that I attached to some cardstock so I had more journaling space on the back.
I really like this layout.  Let me know what you think in the comments below :)

Happy scrappin'
