Ballet Lessons


Ever since the SmallBirds saw this pin on my Pinterest board, they've been pestering me to take ballet lessons.  Not one to stand in the way of their development, I made them some tutus from PartyDresses and gave them some legs to pirouette on.

I'm adding this to Kylie's surprise birthday hop for Kim of Cupcakes Cards and Kim.  Hope you had a wonderful birthday, Kim - and that you're still celebrating!


Here's one of the other SmallBirds en pointe (quick learners, aren't they?)


This one's headed for The Paper Players Clean and Simple challenge:


And, performing a grand jeté, we have this little birdie sending get well wishes.


I'm entering this card into Inkspirational where the challenge is Pink and Grey.
