Ballerina Shadowbox Card

Both my girls have been in dance for years - they tapped and did ballet when they were younger, and Carly stuck with ballet and will be in Pointe class this year.  Maddy has been doing Hip Hop for 4 seasons and is also in Jazz.  Their recital is coming up in 2 weeks - will have to share some pics of them in costume later.

With it being Dance Recital season, I came out with 2 new Digi Sets... "Ballerina" and "Tap Dancer."   Here's a shadowbox card using the Ballerina (inspired by my dd, Carly)
I printed the outline version but colored her in the same color scheme as my pre-colored version in the set... I guess I had these papers in mind when I sat down with Photoshop, lol.  But I do prefer using outlines and coloring up an image myself - I think it's fun to color and they also do better in photos. 

I don't have a Tap Dancer project made... yet!  But Silvi (from my DT) has posted one today using Tap Dancer and Barb and Tania have also used this Ballerina!  So hop over to our DT BLOG to see them all!

Saturday Market - June 7, 2014

Well, given the fact that today is HS graduation, and across the street was a big parking lot sale, the first day of Saturday Market in the Park went okay.... not great, but okay.  Dad tried selling his jewelry & wooden clocks, however the booth next to us was all wooden clocks, except theirs had gorgeous calendar pictures on them. Mom had lots of crocheted beanie hats in cute characters like owls, snowmen, frogs, and some with just flowers etc. as well as baby booties, afghans and quilts, aprons and stick horses.   She sold 2 horses.  And my girls and I tried selling lots of paper craft items, including many bags of cards (10 for $10) and we sold one bag.  Hmmm... 5 hours (3 of those in the sun), and $25 rent for our spot.... we might have actually broke even today!!  I told mom, if they don't sell next Saturday, let me put pictures up on Etsy - I'm sure they'll sell there!  LOL.

The bags of cards above is just a sampling - I had a huge tub full of packages sitting below the table!
