When shopping for little girls, you can never go wrong with anything princess. When those little girls turn into pre-teens, it seems to get harder and harder to shop for them! I called my BFF to ask what kind of things her 3rd grade niece is into these days, and she gave me a few options. The teacher in me went for the one that would use the most imagination - art! I found this super cute case at Michaels, but thought it needed "something"...and I LOVE the way it turned out! It definitely made a simple present a bit more personalized. Love me some vinyl!
