I have been busy going through all my stash and found these gorgeous papers that I bought years ago when I first starting scrapbooking. They are from K & Company and the pack is called Hopscotch. I have no idea if they are still available, but the papers make beautiful cards. I have already done a couple of layouts of my ballet forms from many years ago and will perhaps keep a couple of papers for layouts for my daughter for when she did ballet. I managed to match up the colours with various cardstock that I had already and I am really pleased with how they turned out. For most of these cards I have distressed the edges and that has helped with making the different papers stand out more from the backgrounds. The little pictures of flowers, butterflies and tutus have been fussy cut out from the paper. These cards have been easy as the paper and colour coordination was made easy by using the same range of papers.
I am sure these will go down a treat at Make Shift.
Here they are:
