OWH sketch 157 - hi

Hey there, it's time for another OWH sketch! This is sketch 175 and I really like it. I'm using up all of those brads I never remember to use. :) 

I used this really cool and really, really cheap new stamp I got from Unity Stamp Co.


My Mind's Eye scraps
kraft  cardstock
Unity Stamp Co sentiment
brads from stash

I actually made 4, but one got smudged. :( Bummer! Anyhow, we are all recovering today from yesterday's big ballet recital! Our 7 year old performed in two shows and had her hair and makeup professionally done for the first time. 
Shoes not on yet. Oops!

I sprayed so much hairspray on her bangs I was shocked they moved. 

You can see her huge tooth gap in this bottom photo. She just lost those two top teeth recently! :)

Thanks for visiting me today!

  3. I really like those papers with the Kraft! Also, I adore that photo of your daughter!!! Too sweet! I remember getting my makeup done at that age; after recitals we'd stop by the bowling alley for ice cream sundaes. Although I had to change out of my costume, I was allowed to keep my makeup on, and I was sure everyone there must think I was someone famous, lol. My twitter avatar is a b&w photo of at that age wearing a tutu.
