All pink!

My daughter has an ambivalent attitute towards the medals she won at Irish Dancing competitions. She is dismissive of them: "Everyone gets them, mamae!", but can't help displaying them in a proeminent place in her bedroom.

I've been meaning to make a board to display them properly for a while, and last week's theme for PaperPlay challenge helped to get the project going.



I covered a cake base with patterned paper, decorated it and put hooks for the medals. The cake base was an improvisation - has been laying around since my son's birthday in June - but it worked out perfectly. It is lightweight and I could add the hooks by hand, no need of a drill.
