Pretend Make-Up

Hello all! I don't know what happened, but I all of a sudden have NO crafty time! Its a sad sad thing, or at least I think it is. I feel like I haven't scrapped in months! That means not much to share! I also haven't taken pictures hardly at all! I get frustrated with my camera and put it away for long periods of time.

Last week we were invited to a birthday party. Unfortunately, we didn't end up making it to the adorable little girls birthday, but I did make a gift for her. Since it was small enough, I used scrapbook paper to wrap it up real pretty.
I used a Fiskars edge punch to make the ribbon that wrapped around it and cut a flower with my Cricut using the Flower Shoppe cartridge. I just love that cartridge!
This is what is underneath the paper. Make up! Make up for a 4 year old! :-0 What? Am I crazy? I'm sure the mom thought I was when I asked her if it was okay if I made her daughter pretend make up for her daughters birthday.
No worries though....this make 100% pretend. The inside is hard and won't rub off. Want to know the trick? My friend Karen gave me the heads up about this pretend make up and I knew instantly Maddy would love it so gave it a try. I cleaned out a cosmetic case. Okay, truth be told, I don't wear much make up. I tossed out my first ever eye shadows from 15 years ago about a year ago! :-0 And they were over three quarters full! Anyhow...I went to the dollar tree and picked up a eye shadow case. I scraped out the powder and washed it out real well and let it dry. I then took nail polish and filled the little sections til they were full and let them harden a few days. That's it! Easy peasy and Maddy LOVES hers!
While cleaning up today I found a few layouts! I think they are from January...but hey, its something new to share. So check back soon! I'm working on Peyton's birthday right now. But I hope to find time to edit the photos of the layouts to share with y'all!
