Today was a Special Day

Today was the day my daughter got her pointe shoes for ballet. For a dancer this is like coming of age and what she has been working for since she started dancing at aged 4. For the scrapbooker it was a great photo opportunity and I can see the page in my head already - I've even saved the receipt to record how much they cost us!

The paper addict in me was really happy to discover a scrapbook store in the same strip mall. It wasn't great - I only managed to purchase 4 pieces of paper. I mean that is how I rate a store and so the Scrapbook Warehouse in Lewisville only gets 1 out of 10 from me. It was cute paper for my page about buying the shoes but I expected to spend a little more than $3!

With all the driving today didn't get any creating done - spent the morning trying to organise my creative space yet again. If anyone wants to come and do it for me they'd be welcome. I'm just hopeless. Every time I create something I make more mess and never clean-up after myself. And here's me telling the kids off for not cleaning-up after themselves. Tomorrow I plan to make a recipe card tin holder so watch out for pictures of that.

That is great about your daughter. Mine is about to start pre-pointe this fall & it is all she talks about. You are right about it being like coming of age to ballerinas! Great photos btw!

How exciting! I'll never forget getting my first pointe shoes...still have them, even though I had to quit ballet a year later due to some physical issues.

You will definitely have fun scrapbooking that! :)
