Taylored Expressions November Key Ingredients Blog Hop!!

If you're looking for my CR84FN post, please scroll down or click HERE! Thank You!

Hello! Welcome to the October Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Blog Hop! Today, we are showcasing the November Key Ingredients! Each month, the team shows you 6 days of projects on the Key Ingredients blog to get your creative juices flowing. In case you missed any of this, please be sure to check out the Key Ingredients blog HERE. This month's kit features patterned paper from the Jillibean Soup Homemade 6 Bean Soup collection, coordinating cardstock, ribbon, chipboard buttons and fun die cuts.

I was super excited when Taylor released Moka Morgana earlier this month! Sabrina has recently become involved in ballet, so this sweet image reminds me of her. I stamped and colored her, then I fussy cut her out and popped her up with foam tape. I colored her leotard and skirt to match Sabrina's in her class with the Ballet Academy of Arizona. Her current level requires her to wear marine blue colors.

I layered some patterned papers and also used some ribbon and a few die cuts (library card and butterfly). All of these supplies are from the November Key Ingredients. Here's a detail shot:

And a shot of Sabrina in her marine blue leotard. She was sick this week and apparently, dressing as a ballerina helps to make one feel better. :)

For sketch inspiration, I used the latest Taylored Expressions Sketch #150.

Please be sure to check out the other Key Ingredients designers for some wonderful inspiration! Here's the complete hop list:
