Dancing Penguin!

I can't tell you how happy I am that it is Friday. My week has been a bit trying and I will be glad to see it end! My van was returned to me, but not fixed. It may be a possible reopening of an insurance claim I had when I was rear ended back in November. So now I have to take it back to Toyota and have it diagnostically checked and hopefully get it repaired. It is drivable, as long as I don't let the gas get too low! Anyway, enough of my whining.....

My niece was in a dance recital last spring. She was so disappointed when she was chosen to be a penguin. She really wanted to be a ballerina with beautiful dress......not a tap dancing penguin! I have to tell ya.....she made an adorable penguin!

The paper is Sassafrass and some vintage music paper. I have been really into the tulle lately! I just bought more at Michaels the other day.......just add it to my list of obsessions! I also incorporated some feathers! Love 'em!




The title was cut with my Cricut and the lil' penguin was from my Quickutz. I think I may have actually bought this die cut with this page in mind.
Hope all of you have a great weekend!!!! Thanks so much for visiting me!!!

What a precious layout...Love it! I read your profile and found we share a lot in common. I teach Life Skills (my 30th year with special needs kids) and on a 4th and 5th grade campus. I LOVE Titanic and can't even begin to count the number of times I've seen it. And, Sparks is one of my favorite authors. :)

Michelle, this is such a wonderful layout. I just love what you did with this. I am sure your niece will love it.

I too am glad the week is over. Very busy week for me at work and this is evident because I have not made anything this week.

I will have to make it up in the next 2 days.

Hope you weekend goes well,

Marisa

Aww...so cute! Anyone can be a ballerina, but it takes something special to be a penguin! She looks absolutely adorable! I love the costume.

Your page to showcase this photo is just perfect. The colors bring out the photo. Love the layout and all the extra touches!
