...My little girl drew this one a year or so ago... it is my personal fave!
Now, which movie is this one from, and what routine? [ I think "Frend" in a kilt kinda gives it away... :-) ]

  3. Thanks, y'all...
    It's neat, because she just draws all this stuff 'on the fly'...she watches a movie, and then goes in her room and comes back in a bit with a picture! She has progressed nicely in her art, and the ol' man is proud of her!

    PS - 'adorabiliality'...nice Laurenism!

  5. Thanks, Gingerfan11! She actually has done a few more, which I may post later on... it's cool that she draws some of these at school - think this one was at home, tho... but the school kids might learn a few things about Ginger and Fred from her drawings, which is cool, I think...
