Dancing Queen - August 2017 Hip Kit - Kraft+ challenge

Hallo there,  I see that the February challenge at Kraft+  is using ABBA or an ABBA song as your inspiration.  Last year in October my granddaughter Leane was awarded the Dancing Diva of 2017 at their Hip Hop competition.  I decided that this would be the ideal challenge to scrap photos of her in her Hip Hop outfit.  I used the August 2017 Hip Kit which is made up of the Maggie Holmes Carousel collection.  Here is my page:
Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Cardstock:  American Craft; Letter Stickers: Hip Kit exclusives; Chipboard:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Star sequins:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Puffy Stickers:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Enamel hearts:  Bella Blvd; Die cuts:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Washi:  Bella Blvd; Embroidery Floss:  DMC; White Gesso:  Finnabair; Stencil:  Prima; Dies:  Sizzix circle die; Other:  Twinkling H2O (Solar Gold)

The Inspiration:

I used an old Page Map:

Some close ups:
 I first did the stenciling with a Prima Stencil and some white gesso.

 This sketch challenged me to stagger my photos at an angle.  That is really a challenge as I like linear straight lines.  But I am happy with the result.  I cut the glittery frame and the pink label in half to use in two spots around my photos.

 Lyrics from the song.  Just perfect to document Leane's dancing achievement.

 I tied some string around the little flag and don't you just love that exclusive alpha?

 I splattered Solar Gold Twinkling H2O around the page to add some more gold to the page.

...and as usual I had to do a bit of sewing.
