*4 a Teacher With Class*Created a transparent layout (I think it's my first one!) and had a lot of fun with this! Kati is turning 3 in a couple weeks and it makes me so sad, but happy at the same time. I miss her being little, but she's still so cuddly and loveable, yet getting so grown up and smart at the same time! I used a few things from the June Project Kit from CMK with the Pageframe clear tag behind my photo and added rub on swirls over the photo. I misted the chipboard 3 with the charcoal Glimmer Mist in the June layout kit and kept the felt stars in groups of 3 to keep with the theme of the layout. This is a photo of her playing on the swingset we have in our backyard.
I received my copy of the latest Paper Crafts Magazine called Crafting With Kids yesterday, and I just adore this issue! It's packed with super cute ideas, can't wait to try them with my kids this summer! Lord knows we will need lots of things to keep them occupied. Here is a little project I had in there, a piano practicing chart. I mounted chipboard music notes onto magnets so they can be moved around depending on how many minutes the child practices each day! I thought it would be a fun motivator. I played piano as a kid and would have loved one of these! The times are also on magnets, so you can change those out too if the child practices more as they get better. =)
*Piano Practicing Chart*
The back of the chart is just an old cookie sheet that I had lying around; I painted it black and punched holes in the sides with my trusty ole Crop-a-dile to tie the ribbon on for hanging. Love my Crop-a-dile. I also had 2 little keychains in this issue too using the Maya Road people keychain and a girly one with a little hat, dress, purse and shoe. These would be great to hang from your child's backpack with cell phone numbers of the family on each little chipboard piece! Check out the issue, you won't be disapointed! ~Danielle~
