Sophia Ballerina and Big Fun News and Victoria Case coming to SCACD and a Sneak Peek!!!!!

This time of the year brings around dance recitals and such sweet memories of Nichole's ballet recitals. She had the pretties costumes and looked so sweet and graceful all dressed up. But that wasn't my favorite way of seeing her. I loved her every Saturday little sheer skirt she talked me into making for her. She would stand there or walk around and hold the ends of the skirt with her finger tips just to make the skirt move and twirl. I'd come downstairs where her bedroom was and she'd be dancing to her own music. Oh, those memories are so precious to me.

Sophia Ballerina by Paper Pretties is a stamp that I'll keep forever and use over and over. I was looking around on Saturday and found this great sketch from Our Creative Corner and thought I'd use it. I stamped this diva on GinaK Luxury Paper and colored her with copics and used some Shimmerz on her skirt. The paper is from the4 DCWV Spring Collection and the flowers are Prima. I absolutely love this cutie!

Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day. I know I did!
