For the Record

Wow, how is it that school is already starting?! I have had a crazy busy summer, so sorry to not post in so long! My son is starting pre-school on Monday, but even more fun is that my 2 year old daughter is starting her first dance class the week after that! She is excited beyond belief. She loves her little tutu and ballet slippers as is obvious by this picture of when she got to put them on for the first time...




So when I saw that word art in the embellishment pack of For the Record that says "here is where my story begins" I just had a super emotional moment thinking about her future. Now, do understand, I was never in dance and even kind of despised "those girls" when I was in middle and high school... but now as a mature adult who's not so worried about the popularity game that goes with it, I am actually kind of excited to experience dance vicariously through her. She is a natural born performer I think. So when I watch shows like So You Think You Can Dance, where the parents of these fabulous dancers are talking about how they knew their kids where performers even as early as 2 years old, I am starting to understand that. I can almost picture her coming back to see this page in 15-20 years and being like "yep, that's where my love of dance started!"

Anyway, I just thought it was fun to be so inspired by an embellishment that I built a whole page around it! It's a beautiful kit to work with!

And how about a freebie QP for you guys?
