My daughter is a dancer and this year whe was invited to join the competitive dance team at the studio (named Rising Star)
The best thing about this studio and dance company is that it is the complete opposite of Dance Moms. The teachers are all about encouraging and supporting everyone. There is a Big/Little Sister/Brother program where the older company members mentor the younger. My daughter's big sister is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met and I am so thankful she and my daughter were paired together.
This week's Make-It Monday was to use Perfect Pearls. I bought some a long time ago on a whim and haven't actually ever bothered to use it. Craft hoarding, I tell you. I saw this sentiment and immediately thought of the dance big sis. The Star is from a freebie Stampin' Up, and the wire thingamabob was from my hoard, but the rest is PTI.
