Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Today starts a new challenge over at the 
 and it's the turn of the B Team this fortnight, and the lovely Judith is our host.
She would like you to add a number to your entries.
The challenge runs from 31/8/17 to Wednesday 13/9/17 and closes at 6PM.
Please take a look at my lovely team mates wonderful interpretation of this theme.

So here is my card I made for my little Great Granddaughter Laila she goes to ballet classes, and has done since she was quite a lot younger.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The ballet dancer I found on the Internet, and I enhanced her colour with Copic pens, and  decoupaged her skirt.
The papers are a Cuddly Buddly download. 
Lace and daisies from The Works.

Here is a picture of Laila in her ballet outfit.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
