I won the lovely image from Squigglefly in another challenge, and I chose it because it reminded me of my Daughter, a bit tomboyish and definitely someone who doesn’t conform to the ‘norm’. It also had special meaning because when we moved home just before her 5th Birthday and her start in the world of School, she was struggling to fit in as most of the little ones had been going to Nursery together for a while. So I enrolled her in Ballet classes so she could meet the other little girls and hopefully make friends, but my lovely, beautiful Daughter was not really cut out for ballet as she would probably have preferred to be in the boys’ footie team instead, so as as soon as I saw this image it evoked a memory and I knew I had to have it.
My paper is the last sheet of the gorgeous Posies paper from DCWV (well last of the lush orange anyhow!). The pretty border was made from one of the elements in my new Heartfelt Arianna Lace die, which I cut six times and laid end to end to create the border, and the mat under the image is from Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles 2. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, which are obtainable from our sponsors online store. Image coloured with copics.
