Medal Test

Chloe and Aimee had their dance medal tests today!!!!

I must say these two were brilliant, no nerves or fear, just went straight in!!! Aimee went first her cousin Georgia was in the same group, they went in in fours!

Chloe came next she found out two weeks ago that her teacher was moving her up to a higher level so she can get a higher qualification! I think if I had that thrown at me I would be in bits!!! But she was so calm. I didn't get to see them dance as it was closed! We will find out in a few weeks if Aimee gets her Rosette and Chloe her medal!

So proud of you two, love mum xxxx

At home before we went!

Before they went in!

Chloe didn't want to pose for these photos, as I was the only mum taking photos, I told her "You'll thank me later" lol

Princess Aimee

I had great hopes for this layout, but the colours of the dress made my head spin when I was picking out papers for it! They were either too rich and heavy, or just looked gaudy!!! So in the end I went with this fairy paper! I wanted to create a dreamy, floaty and wishful page, not too serious page, I think it is!This Princess Belle dress is Aimee's favourite, she got it in 2006 and I think it has been worn to over 20 different parties, discos and fancy dresses!!! Any time an invite comes for a dress up party, it's "Mummy I am going to wear my Belle dress" at least I can say we got our monies worth out of it, and hasn't been worn just once or twice and then discarded for the next new one!!! Aimee has about 4 dresses in her collection, she prefers things that she can actually play with and use her imagination more, which I must admit I do prefer!!!

Anyways, I have used a whole packet of Basic Grey White Heart Swish rub-ons, once I started I couldn't stop, lol!!!

I have also gave my new Prima Journaling Stamps a try, I have used the circle journaling tag, and the swirls off of the corner stamps around the edge of the photo.

I have to say thanks to my good friend Tracey for helping me out (Ya KWIM hon, thanks so much, worked perfect).

I also went a little Stickles mad, (What's new, lol). On the original paper, the swirls going across the page, the clouds were all that were glittered!!! But I stickled the Fairy dress, shoes, crown, wings and wand!!! The row of flowers along the bottom didn't escape either!!!! Probably enter it into a bling challenge!

I used my trusty white Sakura Glaze pen to write the journaling! It reads "Aimee this Princess Belle dress is your favourite. Anytime you go to a dress up party this is the one you want to wear".
