Until next summer.....

The Gang (or the Varmints, as my hubby calls the kids, LOL) are all here for their last project.   I only have one picture of our last crafting project because it was after 9pm and I was exhausted!!!  Of course, from looking at the picture below, they aren't tired at all...they could have kept going ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!!!   Just a quick explanation why this weekend is SO much fun (and important) to me.   My hubby and I chose not to have children, and every summer, for the last six years, I started having my niece and nephews, once potty trained, visit me for my KID FIX  :-) 

For our last project, they made pencil/pen holders from up-cycled cans.  The boys all wanted skull and cross bones -- from the Indie Art cartridge.  And Kamryn, used the Cuttle Bug and cut out roll flowers using MCT Rolled Flower Die.   She added about seven flowers and some silk leaves and a butterfly to her can.  I wish now, I would have taken more shots of her pencil holder, it was soooo cute!   The boys all added stardust stickles to the eyes and nose of their skulls. 

It was a fun FIVE days with them.....they're all home now, and I'm back to work today. 

Have a great week!  Chao for now!  --C
