For almost 4 years now, I have taken dance lessons at a great studio in Chicago called Latin Rhythms. I've made some great friends and learned a lot.
One of the people I met early on was a very young instructor - trained in dance - by the name of Blanca. There was a group of instructors in her age group and I was often left in awe of their incredible artistic beauty and seriously fit bodies.
It came as no surprise to me that Blanca was also a yoga instructor. Her calming spirit was infectious and she was effortlessly beautiful. So I wasn't surprised to see this incredible photo of her today...

I can't even do that on my own (with my own single occupancy body)....she's super woman!
The studio and her family surprised her with a shower this weekend, so I put a little something together to add to her unique essence.
I wanted to give her a little something she could reuse but that also spoke to her creativity. I thought a cute little alterable pail with a fun future message would be a great substitute "bag" for my gift.
I forgot to write down what papers I used, but the scrapbook baby pattern I had had these adorable little images in blocks. I cut out the cute ducky and glued it onto a rosette. If you've ever made a rosette, you know how difficult they can be!
See the cute baby paper? I then added a few ribbon strands on the handle and some buttons on the blue strip I adhered to the outside of the pail.
I then added a quirky card...totally simple to make with the silhouette found on the Cricut New Arrival cartridge.
Simple to make but what a fun effect!
