Ballerina Hope!

We found out last night that Hope will be playing a baby mouse in the Nutcracker this Christmas season.  She is pretty excited, although she was hoping to be an angel.  I have a feeling the characters at this age had a lot more to do with what costume they would fit into and less on their experience level.  :)

I was never in dance as a kid, so all this is kind of new to me.  Luckily I had nieces that were involved in dance so I have a small idea of the CRAZY yet to come.  It will be a good kind of crazy.

Speaking of dance, she had her first ballet class) at a new studio tonight.  I think she had a lot of fun, and the neighborhood girls are in the class as well.  I met some of the other mom's and we had fun talking about scrapbooking and even one mom had two adopted kids (from the same agency and around the same time we adopted Hope).  It is always fun meeting others that have adoption in common.  They have open adoptions too, so was fun to meet others with a similar experience.

Anyway, on to scrappy stuff...another card challenge at the Moxie Fab World, vertical card sketch challenge.  Check it out.  Here is the sketch...


I took an almost literal interpretation of the sketch.  As mentioned in my previous posts (for the other sketch challenges) I made a layout using the My Minds Eye-Fine and Dandy papers.  All my challenge cards were made from the scraps left over from that layout.  I used most of the chipboard banner sticker and had three pennant banners left, which worked perfectly for this sketch.  I added the gems and twine bows to jazz it up a little bit.


It was a super easy card to make since I had all coordinating products out already.

Well, that is it for tonight!  Off to start supper!
