This is one of the photos I took for one of the Beginning Pointe girls back when my dd was still in her first year of Prep for Pointe (Jan. 2010). I used it for my entry into the Photo of the Month Challenge that month because our topic was 'Commitment,' and it takes both physical and mental commitment to learn to dance en pointe. This was a full year before my dd went up and 2 1/2 years before her group danced en pointe on stage.
This is my example for my July Four Categories Challenge - Category Two ~ Color: Pink and Gray. For the fibers twist, I have yarn: the crocheted flowers were made by my friend Mindy (mindyradio) -- thanks so much! I love them!
The gray pp and ribbon are from Amanda (scrapanda) -- thank you!
Ribbon slide/buckle: JoAnn
