It's Concert Time Again ...

Each year at this time I spend about a week running my darling daughter back and forth and back and forth to rehearsals and performances for Children's Dance Theatre (a dance company she is involved with through the University of Utah). Their productions are NEVER anything but stellar, and this year was no different. She finished her last performance yesterday, so it looks like we survived another year ....

I mentioned last year that each year they assign each of the older dancers to a younger dancer ... kind of a "big brother/sister" sort of deal. This year was no different. It's so fun helping my daughter come up with ideas of what to give to her little friend every day. She thinks up some things, and I think up some things (this year one of the things we brought for one day was a fluffy pink bunny ... super cute and soft!!). Anyway, we have been giving these little chipboard coaster photo albums every year. They are fun to make and fun to give!!

Aren't they cute??? Here are a couple of photos I took of the girls ...

And I left the rest of the pages blank (7 of 'em!) ... so she could add her own photos. Pretty fun, right?? (Soooo glad I haven't thrown out all my retired DSP's and all the retired cardstock!!)

Paper: Berry Bliss DSP (retired), Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

Hi Wendy~

Congratulations to your beautiful, and talented daughter and her "little sister." And, congratulations for making it through another year!

The album is wonderful! I LOVE the dp behind the blank page that has the pink square on it. What is it? It is a lovely gift. Something they can write in, look at, look back on...and your daughter will be able to list that she was a leader on her college resume! (I know...a long way off.)

Did I tell you about Josh's plans?

He IS Able,
Traci S.
