Angelina Ballerina

My cousin's two beautiful girls have been Frozen-crazy since it came out. But that means that if there is any Frozen merchandise that they DON'T own, then the chances of my finding it for a birthday present would be minuscule!

My cousin was telling me about how much they loved a recent children's ballet performance of Swan Lake a few weeks ago, and that gave me an idea. I hope she won't mind my sharing her text, because it's hilarious and deserves airing. A was convulsing all those within earshot of her with her audible running commentary; "he's not got any trousers on" and "the swan is behind you" and "I need a wee". Bless her!

But I digress. A's 3rd birthday is tomorrow and I'm Frozened-out so I picked Angelina Ballerina instead, and went all girlie with pink, aqua and glimmer. I used a technique seen on YouTube for cutting half a shape into a fold. I quite like it, but having the Cuttlebug which is smaller than the Big Shot, the card height is limited to 15cm.

The card was a huge success! Thank you- it is gorgeous!! You forgot the other comments she made "where are his shoes?" And "they're doing ballet just like I do- watch" followed by a loud crash as she fell of her chair trying to do some ballet moves!!!
