This is the finished project with my daughter's first dance picture. Thanks for all the advice.

I added a picture of Laycie in her outfit that she went to the dance in. I put a die cut tractor under the lyrics just for fun.

A couple of people suggested Dancing in the dark as the title and I liked it so that is what it is called.

They danced to Big Green Tractor by Jason Aldean so I included the lyrics. I put the lyrics on the left side of the left page. To make it cohesive I put the journalling opposite on the right side of the right page and make it look like the lyrics by putting headings.
The picture was impossible to make perfect so I did it like an Andy Worhol which made it playful. I rolled the mat to make it fun & youthful.
This is the picture inhanced as best as I could get it. I softened the edges and then stamped around to give it a fun feel.

Daughter's first dance

My 13 year old went to a school dance. Now, she has been to other school dances before but never with a "boyfriend". I had her friend that went with her take a picture of her slow dancing with her boyfriend. Now I have this grainy picture taken in a dark gym with a cell phone camera. I have NO idea how to scrap this. Any suggestions?
