LETS Get Shabby Challenge #31




Its all about a New Years Song

Here's my project -

Its a little Mini-Album I've made up as a calendar for my ballet year.
The title on the front is from the lyrics of the song
I've used Prima's Annalee Notecards sticking two together to give it strength and a nice back and front for each page.
The fussy cutting of the ballerinas and flowers are from a very old Daisyd paper I've had for a very long time. 
















You can find the challenge







------------------------------------------------------

I've been busy with a few projects for
Global Scrappers (you need to register to get in)
These were kits I made up to take away with me while on holidays so was a wonderful relaxation

Our little delightful cockatiel


-------------------------------------------





We are only a couple of weeks away before the girls go back to school.
Paige was excited to find her books had arrived while we were away on holidays

So she got to work creating her covers
(with my stuff!)

Nothing like some mists and stencils!




Hmmmm, the mists have been depleted somewhat!
But look at the smile on that face!

I adore your Ballet book and all your LO's will have to try and fit one in too. The ballet theme is wonderful and I like all the crochet, lace and bobble ribbon in it. It will really focus your mind with this to hand. Thank you for visiting my blog too, really appreciate your comments.xx
