Ballerina Girl

Hello everyone.. I’m home today with my daughter Tyla, She rarely gets sick, she’s had perfect attendance for 2 yrs in a row. Today I had to make a mommy call and tell her she needed to stay home, because she was running a temp of 101. She was so bummed. At least she likes school :) Well, I figured since I have a little time to spare I’d enter in some challenges. This card is so girly. It was really my childhood dream to be a pro ballerina and open my own ballet studio. I danced for about 3 years from the time I was in 4-7th grade. I even went as far as dancing in Pro Toe shoes. I stopped for 2 reasons. I knew money was tight for my single dad who was raising me alone, and also I wanted to try out for cheerleading my 8th grade year. Still for the time I danced, I loved it. And It totally tugs at my heart strings when I see a little girls in tights and tutus.

These are the challenges I am entering in:

Simon says stamp – Coffee & Cream

Magnolia-licious – Brown & Pink

Paperpretties – Glittery challenge (glittery crown)

ResQ – Something that makes you happy (childhood dancer)

Myshericrafts – All about girls

PIO – Childhood dreams

party time tuesdays – anything goes
