Twinkle Toes

Yesterday, my youngest daughter had her dance recital!! I just love how sweet and adorable all the little dancers are... and of course, I wouldn't be a proud momma if I didn't show off a couple of pictures of my baby girl!!  We snapped a few pictures in front of our house before we left for the recital...



That last picture is of Lauren with her sisters (Kristin and Courtney) who came to see her recital... she was soo excited that they were there!! Just a side note, these are the same two who are featured in my LO today!!!

Well... it's Monday and that means that we have a new challenge over at Practical Scrappers!! Are you ready for this one?!! This week we are asking you to show us fabric, felt or Tulle!! I don't know about you but this challenge just screamed girly to me.... and so this is what I made....


This picture is of my oldest girls several years ago at a dance recital. It is sooooo hard to believe that they are now 20 and 19!!!! Where does the time go?!!! I used a mix of fabric and felt on this one. The flowers are from a Martha Stewart kit I got on clearance at Big Lots!! It was actually a hair accessory kit but I just used the flowers from the kit!! The big purple one and two small pink ones are from this. I added some paper flowers, stickles, gems, buttons and ribbon and I think they turned out adorable!! I also used a flower ribbon around my circle. The ruffle under the picture is embroidered with butterflies and topped off with felt ric-rac that I also added Stickles to.!! In fact, I think I put Stickles on just about everything!! Gotta have that bling!! I added some purple feathers because... what dance costume doesn't have feathers on it?!! LOL!!

The papers are We R Memory Keepers Madame Royale stack. I used the Forever Young cart for the circles. Flowers are a mix of Prima, Recollections, and Making Memories!!! The letters are Stickles that I painted and topped with Stickles!

Thanks for stopping over to see what I created.... now head on over to Practical Scrappers to check out what the other designers have made for inspiration this week!! Be sure to check it out everyday since new DT examples are revealed daily!! We would love to see what you create so be sure to link up your projects at Practical Scrapper!! Have a lovely week!!!!!!

I have SO many pictures of Scotti and Jordyn together...I can't imagine what it will feel like in 10+ years to look back at them when they are teens! I pray they always keep the same (or maybe w/o the hitting) relationship!
Lauren is just a doll! I can't wait to take recital pictures (coming up in June so look out!) and I just did a dance page yesterday for SOUS next friday)

Oh, I am sorry I haven't been by...I have so much to do (and had to do 30+ invites in a few days! wow!) So I did go back and look at everything that I had missed and WOW..so much FUN in your pages!!!!

You and your GF are just...let me say it...HOT! Really, I think I may have a few years on you! You young, fine thing! =0)
