Dance Year Comes to an End!

Well it actually ended back in the beginning of April but I've been quite busy.  It comes time to put together and album to celebrate Isabelle's journey throughout the dance year.  Wow this year was a busy but exciting one.  Alot more conventions and competions than we normally do along with first time scholarships for the bubbly 9yr old.

The album is not complete although i worked on it every night durning our beach trip and at my local Micheals NSD crop.  I made it all way through the competition season and only have recital and Debbie Allen performance left.  I went with 8 1/2x 11 size because i knew it would just too much at the 12x12 size.  I also decided to use We R Memory Keepers divided protectors.  They hold 4x6 photos in all orientations and made quick pages.

So here we go.....

 Company Sleepover
 Toliet Paper Fashion Show
 Big Sis / Dolly Dingkle (our version of Halloween)

 School Talent Show - She won 1st Place
 Family Showoff Day
 Reflections of the Season (Christmas Performance)

 NUVO / VIP Dance
 VIP & Alyse / 7th Year Dance Charm
Recital - "Dance Green" / "Creep"

Supplies: Mostly American Crafts, manily "Dear Lizzy Enchanted" ..... more detailed supply listed when i blog about the finished album.

So my thoughts on next year's album:  Have her help me and complete pages throughout the year instead of all at once.  

So have you heard of SMASH?  Well it's K & Company's newest album journal and since i pre-ordered it should be on my doorstep any day now.  I pitched the idea of using a smash album to Isabelle for next year's dance album and have her hooked.  I figured she could use it throughout the year and document her own journey (with my help of course!).  We discovered she could have her teachers autograph straight into her SMASH journal and i would use my poloraid pogo printer to print her pictures with them.  BRILLIANT!  The SMASH journal will also be a great place for her to "SMASH" her keepsakes from our trips..... ie. resturant napkins, convention bracelets, hotel room keys, etc.  I ordered her the "pretty pink" one (the doodle red for myself) and all the accessories.  Can't wait!
