Can this really be me?

Post by Guest on Wed 9 Jun 2010 - 9:19

Had to do a black, white and silver layout for a challenge and have wanted to include this picture of me (over 60 years ago!!) for my Book of Me. So glad to have got it done at last!! It had to have an Elvis song title on it too!!

Not an alphabet, just used an old stencil of Kenny's from his railway drawings.

No that was a lucky find at Pinnacle - a sheet of black paper with all silver writing on it with tap dance steps, etc. and all about dancing. What a lucky find, eh?

Kim - yes, I was a tap dancer until really quite recently (certainly in my fifties!) and was in a show of some sort. My Mum (who was a tailor) made all my costumes and in fact, most of the costumes of the Dance Company to which I belonged. I loved it all - always have loved making a noise! Did all my exams right up to silver medal too, so was obviously keen. I think I was about 11 or 12 at the time, hard to recall and of course the picture has no date on it. I remember Dad made the hat - the first one of which kept falling down over my eyes, so it had to be undone and taken in. Have had that trouble with hats all my life!!! Is that enough info for you??

Fab layout, wonderful image, I used to tap dance, loved it, did think of taking it up a few years ago but too self conscious

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing
