Challenge #6 Sisterhood of Scrap "Sock Hop"

What is a Sock Hop?? It's a dance that became popular during the 1950's. These dances were often in school gyms and to keep from marking up the floors, dancers would remove their shoes and dance in their socks. Socks also made it easier for dancers to twist and slide!

My challenge for today has to do with the color white -- the color of socks :-) CREATE a layout using all white! Your photo(s) can be color or black/white.

Here's a layout I created a few weeks ago using all white papers and embellishments. I thought it would be tough but it turned out to be one of my favorite layouts.
(Thanks to a DT member on Scrap My Memories for the idea for this challenge)




Here's the prize you're playing for today -- a Crate Paper "Mia" Collection!




Link your layout from your blog or gallery in the comments for everyone to see!!! All challenges are due by April 30th for the Sisterhood of Scrap "Sock Hop".
