The countdown in officially on at our house 4 more days of school. Here in Manitoba the kids are kept until the very bitter end. The past 2 weeks have been packed with field trips, special events, and assemblies like crazy. Nothing like saving it all up until the end. I've been in the school a lot, hence the crickets chirping on the blog lately, my apologies. My kids, and family, however will always come ahead of my hobby.
We spent the tail end of April, and better part of May in Dance Competitions. Here is my beautiful Belle in her Jazz Dance costume. It was a wonderfully, playfully genius choreographed piece by their teacher Lori Watson. It was called Pretty In Pink and, the girls were dressed to look like flamingos with little flamingos on their arms. They looks positively stunning and danced well enough to earn themselves an Elite Gold, and tie for 1st in their category.
|Love this little cluster of Pink Paislee die cuts|

In support of my bloggy friend Leslie, I am linking this up to Whimsical Wednesday at The Memory Nest.
Now, how about an AMAZING FREEBIE to kick off the weekend? Catherine sent this to those of us featured in the Summer issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today.
She is kicking off the release of this issue with a BANG. Not only is it the release of the Summer Issue, but it is also the 30th Issue of her sweet magazine, that wasn't much more than a dream not too long ago. Giveaways, prizes, challenges, and much, much more await you on their blog. I strongly encourage you to take the time to pop over and check out all the goodness going on, the party starts right here. You'll start with receiving your very own e-copy of the newly released Summer Issue (where you'll find my layout too).
That's it for me. I'm really looking forward to the weekend. I have 2 girls going off to a friend's cottage for the weekend, while the other has a date with Daddy for the Taylor Swift concert on Saturday. Oh check out her face when she opened the tickets last Thursday for her birthday. Priceless!
|She could not have been more surprised, or more grateful.|
As for me: I have a crop on Friday night, work on Saturday, then all evening to myself - YAY! And Sunday, I think we'll take this little one out for breakfast, just the 3 of us. How about you? What's up in your corner of the world for the weekend?
As always I really appreciate you're stopping by. I hope you've been inspired to go and make the day beautiful.
