8 year old b-day

Wow, I cannot believe that my baby is now 8, I guess I can’t really refer to her as a baby anymore but I call all my kiddos my babies and it drives them nuts.  Time sure does fly.   Every year when we make the birthday cards I involve the kids in the process.  They pick the theme, color, stamps, and help me to design the card itself.  It is up to them how much more they want to do.  This year Kaitlyn wanted to do all of the stamping by herself.  I showed her how to do a OSW (one sheet wonder) and she actually did one pretty well but she was not happy with it.  I thought it was great for her first try and I tried to get a picture of it but she was too embarrassed and ran over to the shredder and destroyed it.  She did help with the gluing of all of the layers and the other stamping but I made the OSW.

kk8bdayThe picture really does not do the card justice.  The OSW was created on shimmery white cardstock and the finished osw was sprayed with the combo of champagne shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol.  So the card is nice and sparkly, perfect for any young girl.

Of course we had to bring in some sort of goody bag/ treat to her class so we decided on the little “sour cream” containers.  Theses were made out of the 6x6 Good Neighbor Designer Series Paper pad.  After the incident with her not wanting a picture of her stamping she arranged these and came and told me that it was ok to take a picture of them.  So here you go!kksccont
