Scrapbooking as Art

This post is for Angela, who asked to see the scrapbook I did for Ellie's Nutcracker Ballet performances these past two years.  I have to say upfront that I'm not much of a scrapbooker — I lack the meticulous attention to detail and neatness — but I had a lot of fun putting this together for her.  I wanted something that would help her remember for her full life the fun of being the star, but also the joy of friends and accomplishing something as a group.

The Balanchine version of the ballet that she danced in has a "Marie" not a "Clara" but is similar in other regards.
