hotpink hoopla shimelle tutorial layout

I finally got to join the lovely shimelle and create a layout.....I have been trying for weeks to find some time to play along with her, so I finally sat my crafty bottom down this morning.  
the title/name of this layout had me sucked in straight away "hotpink hoopla", what a gorgeous word!!!  
I knew what photo I wanted to use once I saw the hot pink, its one of sophie ready for her first dance show, I was out the day of show and I wasn't here to do her makeup, all the little girls had to have loads of bright colours on so the lights would not drain them out on stage............so the job fell to daddy........his poor little heart when I broke the news!!!! wish I was there to see the makeup application!!! but in tropper style the boy did good left alone with all things alien to him and he proudly painted her face!!! definitely one to be scrapbooked!!! so thats the story behind the page.  
I mostly played with sassafrass and cratepaper patterned paper and got to finally use the last of those love elsie stickers I have been hoarding too!!! title alphas are by doodlebug and I punched the bottom strip using my new favorite punch from docrafts, the ribbon  hole punch, how I lived without it before I will never now, I am in LOVE!!! have a scrappy sunday xx
