Dream, Achieve, Believe

I made this Card-in-a-Box for Livy who has started at full-time ballet school.
She is learning how to "Believe" in herself and her natural ability.
She's daring to "Dream" of a future as a ballerina.
With her tenacity, perseverance and dedication she will "Achieve" great things.
Livy says when she's dancing she feels like she's flying,
so I added a few butterflies to give her wings to fly.

That's the Ticket - CSP Magazine

A lovely surprise to find myself published again in the "Readers Gallery" 
section of the latest edition. 
Bottom left card.
My friend and Downline Felicity Hawkins,
 a regular contributor to the Magazine, features in the 20 questions section.
This is a great Magazine with fantastic ideas, tips and inspiration.

Memories -Scrapbook Page

A scrapbook page I did recently.
Last week was the first anniversary of Dad's passing.
I'm not a very good scrapbooker but seeing that I'm finding card sketches great to work with I thought I'd try a scrapbook sketch.
I really like the page, maybe because it's of Dad and happy memories.
All products are SU except for the title.
Cardstock: Basic Black, early Espresso, Soft Suede, Baked Brown Sugar, Newsprint DSP (r).
Accessories: Scallop Tag topper punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, Burlap ribbon, Natural buttons, Antique brads
