Kick up your heels

For Christmas I wanted to make my nieces something special and when I came across this digi by Mo Manning, Little Irish Dancer I  knew what I wanted to do.

Both nieces have been Irish Dancing for years and have traveled through the USA and Ireland competing, and winning competitions.

I colored the images with my Copic markers and purchased these frames from Michaels.  I visited our local craft shop, Creative Accents in Williams Lake and had Tara fill me with ideas and suggestions on how to dress up the frames.  I left the shop with goodies in hand and got to work.

I'm sorry the pictures are not the best quality as they really don't show the true, vibrant colors.  It was Christmas Eve and I was madly wrapping the gifts when I realized I hadn't taken a pic yet.

Merry Christmas Nicole and Lauren!
