My DD has been gettin' crafty!

Well my friends, I have to tell you, my daughter is stealing the show today! She's had more time to get crafty than I have as of late!!

She got an invite with one of her friends to a party at one of my local scrapbook stores. It was geared toward kids and this is what they made!
I thought I would share because I thought it turned out darling and I know there are a lot of moms out there that like to do crafty things with their daughters. Here's all it took-- some stickers, some punched circles, bling, punched flowers, some chipboard letters, strips of paper, a good glue, some edging or ric rac, a handful of fun ribbons in vibrant colors, a clip board and a note pad! And above, is what you get after about 45 minutes! The girls loved it! I forgot to mention that they did sponge a wash of acrylic paint to color up the clip board. You can't really tell, but my DD decided to make hers yellow.

When I asked my DD what she loved about making this project, she said... "I liked painting the board and putting on all the bling!" Yes, my friends, she IS my daughter! LOL!

Here she is... gettin' crafty! How cute! Sorry, I'm biased!
Thanks Ellie for stealing the spotlight! You can do it anytime!

I'll be back soon with another Stamp Simply challenge AND a fun little Flourishes Focus that is all about taking off the mask! Yep, that was your hint! See you all back here soon!
