Made it Myself Monday Linky Party Week 8

Good Morning,
This week I did another Squash Book for my project. One day I will catch up on all my squash book orders and can attempt to try a different project but I keep getting orders and have to get them done.
I'd like to thank Alex for hosting another week of this link up party.
If you would like to participate just go to  and link up.

Now on to my project.

I was asked to make a squash book as part of a birthday gift. A friends daughter and friend was in the Dance America Nationals in Chicago. This was their first national competition and they placed 5th so they were very excited. The theme colors are black, purple and silver. For the purple paper I added little swirls in black. On the black paper I wrote and repeated the songs they danced to. They had top hats with white feathers so that's where the white feather comes in. I left pleanty of room to add pictures and journaling.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you. If you stop by any of the blogs from the link up party please leave a comment for them as well. Everyone works so hard on their projects and loves to get the comments.
