What A Difference 3 Months Makes!

What a difference three months makes. Preston just passed his pre-alpha on Saturday and is ready to begin alpha tonight. He went from learning to fall, to being able to skate backward and spin! And skate on one foot. I could not be more proud of him. He has fabulous determination!

The Pre-Alpha LO was a lot of fun! The circle of cardboard is repurposed from a Shutterfly envelop, that brought the photos. I used acrylic paint in ivory, painted on with a jar mouth. The next layer was some awesome Cherry Ice Smooch Spritz. I had a load of fun making the laced up boot embellishment. I used some paper I had printed at Craft sassy, using images from, cut into strips to simulate the sides and the tongue of the boot. I used 20 black eyelets to make the lace up boot, threaded with black rat-tail cording. (I made the embellishment, while I waited on the sidelines at the testing lesson!).

Have a fabulous week! We are off to alpha lessons tonight!
