At The Paper Variety, in honor of Memorial Day, they challenged us to use Stars for their Star Studded Challenge. This is my take on the challenge.I lifted a fantastic layout by Amy that you can see here if you like.
My friend Jan inspired me with her felt stars. How I tried to cut nice stars but in the end failed and failed big time! So don't look too close! ;-) I drew in my own lines and also drew a black line around the Thickers to help them stand out. At Birds of a Feather we've had some talk of black inking on bright papers. I finally got the guts to do it and like the effect.
As for the pictures, this is what happens when I leave the room for a minute. Yep...I'm pretty sure Maddy was not the one who put them in her hair. Funniest part was how proud Peyton was! haha!
Now on to some personal stuff. I take the kids to the library almost every Thursday for story time. The gal who reads the stories is INCREDIBLE! I mean, she keeps me totally entertained! She also has a little craft for the kiddos afterwards. This past Thursday she read stories about construction. The craft was to build something using gumdrops and toothpicks! Peyton could have sat their for HOURS! Maddy, not so much. She ate hers and was done! Haha!
