Dance - Anyone for Anya

Created this card for the Anyone for Anya? challenge this week. We're supposed to choose the Anya or a friend that resembles our personality or looks like us the most. I chose Wild Sprout Savannah-- the one who dances of course!

Ever since I can remember, I've LOVED to dance. And although I haven't had any real formal training, I have entered multiple dance contests with my relatives during childhood and won first place several times. I've performed at high school assemblies. I've had hip-hop classes in college and a hula/tahitian class just a couple of years ago. And I always dance in my living room! One of my favorite shows is SYTYCD!

Anyway, this Wild Sprout is doing more of a ball room dancing sort of deal but I am drawn to the feather in her hair. I wore one for my wedding, you see :). I just think it is so elegant and classic! I colored her hair red because I am dying to color my hair right now (maybe not red, but something new and different!).

I used products from kol laj -- Traci B's line. There's the fabric and the textured "stage." I love textures!! You can see them better here.

I also used American Crafts for the CS; Sonburn for the the red flowered pattern paper; Basic Grey for the pink one behind it. The brads are from Basic Grey and Doodlebug design Inc. You can kinda see a trend in my supplies as I try to always use from my stash.

Anyway, thanks for visiting! I have four and a half whole days of maternity leave and I am quite sad it's ending. I hope to have more cards for you, and a lay-out or two when I go back to work. Have a great Friday! Bye peeps!

Another awesome card, I love the textures you add to them! And I love learning more about you! SYTYCD is a fave of mine too, but I didn't discover it until the third season. My favorite routine of all, so far, was 'the Door' with Twitch and Katie, so amazing!
Anyway, I think it's really cool that you dance!

Love the Anya you chose! It's my first AFA challenge I couldn't participate in. :( Super bummed. Not even sure what Anya I would have used!
