Dimensional Details - week 4 and other not related notes

It was a busy busy week. The preparations for the annual ice skating show are in full swing. Lila and me are spending the whole weekends at the rink. She also took a lot of private lessons preparing for her test ice skating test last Sunday. She tested in 4 categories and passed 3 of the. Still need to work on her pre-juvenile moves in the field. It is tough!

I know you wanted to see it so here is Lila dancing Canasta Tango:

I completely skipped the week 3 of Dimensional Details and managed to do only one layuot for week 4. It was a bonus assignment based on the sketch by Trina McClune The left part of her layout had about 80 small pictures. My version has only 20 but it is still a record for me. As Trina, I sanded the edges of several pictures and raised them. I used again the old DCWV Once Upon a Time paper pad. The title is cut using Qiuckutz Revolution.

Supplies: cardstock (Wausau Paper), patterned paper (DCWV), chipboard (DCWV), die cut machine (Quickutz), journaling tag (Making Memories), border punches (Fiskars), glimmer mist (Tattered Angles), ink (Hero Arts)
