I just saw a fun challenge over at Double D Challenges - If the Shoes Fits.
I've had the idea for this card in my head since buying this Marianne D Ballet Slippers Die early this year, so this challenge gave me the perfect excuse to make it up.
I came across the quote on the internet and made it up using WordArt in the Word Processor. I'm not sure to whom it should be attributed. I believe Marilyn Monroe said something similar as did Bette Midler. In any case I think it's even more appropriate for Ballet Shoes - the dedication and drive needed for ballet will definitely help a young girl conquer the world!
My husband's niece is a principal dancer with the Australian Ballet and I have watched her determination to excel in ballet with awe for over 2 decades. When she gained entry to the prestigious Australian Ballet School, when she was given a position in the chorus, then a solo role and more recently when she has danced the principal role. She has danced danced all over the world - Paris, London, New York, Japan, San Francisco and Los Angeles and we're extremely proud of her!
Here's a photo of her taken recently in a principal role - gorgeous isn't she.
Supplies : Marianne D Ballet Slippers, Spellbinders Doily Accents (Border lace), Marianne D Ballerina 2 (used to create a funky foam stamp used on envelope).
Thanks for stopping by - especially if you take the time to leave some feedback. I can't tell you how much your kind words brighten my day!
