One Night, 220 Scrapbook Pages

What do 220 happy little girls look like? I can answer that! On Friday night, I helped the Champaign Park District put on their annual Daddy Daughter Princess Ball. Over 400 dads and daughters filled two ballrooms at the Hilton Garden Inn, for dinner (kid-friendly fare!), dancing, princess visits, and crafts.

You guessed it, the crafts is where I came in!

Each girl got to assemble her own souvenir scrapbook page to take home. It’s hard to see in the picture, but the background paper is embossed with the Big Shot Texturz plates swirl pattern, and the title was created with the Big Shot Top Note Die. The stars are from the Big Shot Stars #2 die.

Without a doubt, the highlight for each girl was adding her own Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the page. We used 2-Way Glue Pens, and I was impressed with the creativity of many of the girls–no simple glitter patterns here! We saw hearts, swirls, names and more.

Here’s my daughter Abby making her own page–but her favorite part of the evening was definitely dancing with her dad. Awwww!


Dad’s take on the event? He said he enjoyed the evening, and the food was great–best chicken fingers and rolls and potatoes he’s ever eaten in a ballroom 😉


And a big thank-you to my wonderful volunteers for the evening! It takes quite a bit of coordination to have 220 girls make scrapbook pages in 3 hours. By the end of the night we all looked like glitter queens! But the girls were happy and everyone had fun.
