I made this LO as a thank-you gift for Alysa's dance teacher. Yesterday was her first dance recital. She was a superstar at age 4. I'm so proud of her. I framed this LO with an 8x8 acrylic frame. I attach a pink chiffon ribbon to allow for hanging and some Heidi Swapp clear bling to the outside of the frame. It really turned out awesome and she loved it.

A fun scraplift challenge at Songbird Avenue. I scraplifted Kate Teague's LO here, while using the March kit from Songbird Avenue, by Kate Teague, Jan Crowley, Maya & Meredith Fenwick.

Juliya is about 28 months we have laminated a copy for her to keep. Thanks for visiting!! Leave me some love and good wishes for this family on this post and I'll draw a random winner for an acrylic "house" album from Pageframe Designs! I'll draw a winner on Sunday April 6th!!!!
