    I am so impressed! Your daughter has it goin’ on! Go girl! That is awesome. If she’s that talented at 13, imagine what she’ll be in a few years! I am so excited to try this out. I posted your videos on my blog and linked it to your site. I hope you don’t mind! I couldn’t wait to share it! I’ve also got some free svg files for SCAL on my blog if you want to check it out! Thanks for the video!

    Great video Abby!

    You shirt looks very cute and I think i may try this with my “crafty” 11 year old niece – I’ll have her watch your video first!

    Thank you for the demonstration.
