Senior Dinner Dance Pages

Wow! It is hard to believe that it has been 6 years since these photos were taken and even harder to believe that I have never posted these scrapbook pages.  I actually had to go back and check throughout my blog to check.

Scrapbooking special events like fancy dances are always so much fun. Usually there were before and after pictures that show the transformation of “Cinderella”.  But for this particular event, Cinderella was annoyed with her scrapbooking Mom and was less than cooperative while she was having her hair done at the salon.  In one of the few photos I managed to take, she made such a horrid face that she was hardly recognizable.

Yes, I think it is pretty clear why that did one did not make the cut.

Showcasing the special dress meant coordinating stamps and embellishments. I found the perfect stamps to use to create the borders for the page.  They were from the now retired Gratitude set (C1322) by Close To My Heart.

It is hard to see in the photos, but the centers of the stamped flowers were accented with small rhinestones.

Cinderella’s hairpiece and corsage were made especially for her to coordinate with her dress by yours truly. Several years ago, my Mom, who had owned a flower shop, had taught me how to make corsages, boutonnieres, and other items.  As you can see, this turned out to be a very handy skill.

I used the left over leaves left from the floral materials as embellishments. I added more bling by accenting the veins on the leaves with a glitter pen.

Cinderella was stunning. Our stylist went above and beyond and really outdid herself with her hair.  As you can see, once she was all beautified, she had no difficulty posing for Mom.

And of course, no special event is complete without the ephemera associated with it!
