I scrapbooked one 12″x12″ page, using a photo of myself as a child. I covered cardstock with lace using modge podge. The layout was photographed by me with a Nikon D70 © My inspiration was “Heritage 3” by JLRich on Scrapbook.com

I resized it on the computer.
I was lucky the lace I used for the dress had a scalloped edge, which followed the line of the template. Nikon D70 ©
I cut out the template for the dress from an opaque flexible plastic cutting board sheet as used for cooking. I get them at Dollar-stores. It is marked with a permanent marker. The shape was cut from chipboard. I was going to use the little hanger made from a paperclip, but I decided it was too small. I use these little pink clips while drying the glue. Nikon D70 ©

Photo of myself used for the layout. Taken on 9.20.1963 when I was 8 years old, after competing in The Springs, South Africa music festival, which was held at the Springs, South Africa town hall. I received a merit award in the 7-9 yrs solo section. The white tutu was rented. The photo was taken by Johnson’s Studio in Springs, South Africa.
I was very fortunate that I was able to take ballet lessons since I was about 6 years old. My first teachers were the Gardner Sisters who taught Royal Academy of dancing at the Masonic Hall, which was on the corner of First avenue and 7th street, in Springs.
