Let's Get Sketchy Challenge #30

While surfing last night for more scrapping blogs, I came across Let's Get Sketchy. Loved their Challenge #30 Sketch for the final week of September so got busy on it right away. I won't be eligible to be entered in their give-away since I did not complete two of the four weeks that they offer sketches, but I still wanted to share my layout with them and you. ;)
Here is the Challenge #30 Sketch
And here is my take on this great sketch. Since the photos are so small but are full of people and action, I decided to skip out on journaling and only add the event and date to the small ticket journaling tag. I wanted dimension but wasn't sure what I had that would work well with the dancing and party theme that also stayed with my color scheme that I chose so I opted with white and red buttons and only added yarn to a touch more color. I'm pretty pleased with the final result since I wasn't expecting a great layout with these small pictures that weren't great photos to begin with (...the main reason I had them printed so small...). Question: Do you find yourself making "so-so" layouts with not so great pictures?? I do! I tend to really give it my all on a layout that I am using an awesome picture on. Just curious if it's just me ;) As always, thanks for stopping by and comments/suggestions are always appreciated :)
