Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 22, Day 4

Day 4... Whew! What a week so far! I'm pretty excited to show you the project I made for today! As you might remember in my blog post from yesterday it is recital week for my daughter's dance studio. This year the dance studio is celebrating 50 years, which is a huge accomplishment! I was trying to think of something I could make or give the dance studio owner/director (I took lessons there when I was a kid too!)... and I decided on a shadow box to commemorate the occasion!
My husband attended the recital Wednesday evening and I instructed him to bring me a program - do not bend it, fold it, wrinkle it, tuck it under your arm... you get the idea. :) And from there I just sort of ran with her theme "Golden Memories".

I have to say, I know I've used my PK-640 Princess Face Assortment a lot this week but now you can see how wonderful they really are! Everyone neeeeeeeeds a set of Princess faces! The cuts for this Ballerina again are from "Twinkle Toes".

With all of the stage makeup and such these girls have to wear I thought this face from the Princess faces fit perfectly - love those eyelashes!

(Glad you can't see too much of a glare on the glass because you would see my messy craft room then! Ha!)

And here is a quick shot outside of the glass -- making it a bit easier to see!


This was a challenge for me to pull it all together because the color gold and I don't get along very well most of the time. We'll see what Miss Marcia thinks of her gift tonight at the special reception celebrating her 50th year! I'm so excited to give it to her!

Don't forget about the chance to win some lovely stamps from the new Anyday line!

To be entered into the drawing please leave a note on this blog post and also on my blog. You will have five days to leave a note, so that is five chances to win! :) I will use random.org to pick which day and post for the winner. I will draw and announce the winner on my blog on Saturday June 11th.

Have a fantastic Thursday!
