Hard Times Dance

A few months ago, Dillon had his first real date for a school dance.  It was called a 'hard times' dance and all I really know is they were supposed to wear old clothes.  The girl seemed to have gotten into the spirit of things but Dillon's clothes don't look that old to me.  However, he is at an age where he outgrows everything so maybe nothing in his closet is that old.

For the page, I'm using some of the things I picked out to use from my stash this summer. One thing I especially wanted to use were the neutral 6x6 papers from The Pier's paper pad.  They seemed to really fit the theme of the page.  I also made a little dent in the raw chipboard letters.

Here's the video at YouTube:

And here is the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Thank you--another inspirational video.

  2. I think this may be one of my favorite pages. Everything just seems to work! The Hard Times Dance is also a really cool concept for the kids. ;-) Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great LO - love how you used some 6x6 papers on a 12x12 LO. And good for you on getting some stash used - I really need to pull out some things to use up too! And I really like how you put your stickers on wax paper so you can see how they will look ... I might need to see if I can buy some.
