3 generations of dancers

More older pictures. I love these pictures of my grandmother, mother an daughter in their ballet poses. You'll notice I'm missing from the line up - dancing was never my thing! My Nan was a great dancer though and, had she been born in a more enlightened era, would probably have made a career of it. M loves her ballet class too.
 

I changed the modern photo of M to black and white to match the older ones then went to town with whatever pink/floral scraps I could find. I cut the title and journalling cards from a 6x6 Chalk Studio pad, but everything else is from my scraps box. I just kept on layering until I was happy with the look of it, then stuck everything down.

I'm not sure what album this belongs in. My heritage album is A4, but that wouldn't have worked for this series of 3. It can live in my 2012/13 album for now.

You have edited that modern photo so well. I like the way you have placed them all side by side. Lovely embellishment too.

One of my favourite sorts of pages - showing several generations at once. They are all so graceful and your page design really echoes that.
