Baby Ballerina

Sidney went for an audition at the National Ballet School this past weekend. For those who are reading from far off places the school is probably the biggest and most prestigious in Canada. We're not thinking of sending her full time or anything just for a weekly class. Yes, you have to audition for that. She was very excited and not too nervous as we just said it was a practice class to see if she liked it.
The jig was up when we got there as the kids were assigned numbers and she heard the word "audition" spoken a few times. Even so, she did very well, especially for a girl who hasn't had a ballet class in over two years. She had excellent posture, a fabulous point and listened nicely. We find out in four weeks (there was some serious stage-mother competition), but you know, as Sid said " I don't even care if I get in. It was fun to try and I will keep trying until I do."

This week's challenge at the Scrapping Turtle was to use Pinwheels on a card. These are fun and totally addictive to make, here's mine:Also for May's product higlight we got to play with Kiki Art's Fun tape. I picked the zigzag stitches, it a quick way to add a little sewing detail.

And it was a great excuse to finally scrap Sid's school photos! Thanks for peeking!!

Good luck you your pretty little ballerina! She seems to already have the right attitude about dance- it should be fun! Lovely projects- the card is too cute!
