Happy Birthday Ballerina
Sweet Sketch 83

Happy New Year to all of you!  For me it is always refreshing to begin a new year.  The month of January is usually donated to deep house cleaning.  The problem is...with all the caregiving that I do...there isn't enough time to get as deep as I would like! 

But it is a New year and we have a New Sponsor at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
By LORi Designs has some very sweet images that I know you will do take some time to view our DT cards at SSW and to visit By LORi Designs.

For our Weekly Winner at SSW this week, Lori is offering this $10 gift certificate for you to choose your favorite images.  So grab Arlana's sketch and your craft supplies and start your
New Year's Resolution
to play along with us at SSW.

This is Arlana's sketch for this week.

This is a close up of Lollipop Ballerina.

My five year old grand daughter is taking ballet so when I saw this image it reminded me of her when I watched her in her ballet class!  She loves pink and she loves her ballet class!

  1. Just adorable! She looks great in pink and I just love the little flowers and frond punch. And her sparkly outfit is so fun. I see she has a headband in her hair - hmmm, I missed that on my image LOL - sometimes I get a bit too carried away!
