"Little Ballerina" LO for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #85: Lots of Layers

I personally like the lay-out I was able to create for this challenge.  It's very close to my heart.  First, it's because the photo utilized is the one with my deceased grandfather whom I seldom see when he was still alive.  I couldn't remember my sentiments when the photo was taken but I must have been proud posing in my ballet attire with him.  Second, it's the only photo taken of me with my ballet outfit.  I never really thought of taking ballet to be one great ballerina and I never did become one nor progressed more than just the Grade 1 class in Ballet.  I wonder if I really took the heart to become a good dancer . . . albeit a little ballerina at a young age.  But I'm surely glad that I took the classes, now that I'm much older.  How I wish I had a photo doing a recital as I can't even remember being on one.  Gosh!  Such a far off time to remember. :(   

Other than the above, I love the colors I was able to use on my layout . . . achieving my 1st monochromatic lay-out with such softness that I could muster and visualize making.  I think this is one of my fave LOs.
