Project with Grand daughter...

Hello Friday!
Some of you may have seen the explosion box card that I made for my DH for Valentine's Day. Well, my 10 year old grand daughter, Kendyl, thought it was just the Bee's Knees and wanted one for herself :-) So the next time she was over, she asked if we could make one together and I loved the idea. It made me all warm and fuzzy that she liked something that I made so much! First I had her look through my paper and pick out the colors she liked ... I knew there would be lime green included. She settled on the blacks and greens. We got everything cut out and I taught her how to ink all the edges. I must say that she caught on really fast and did a fantastic job!! The next part that I put her to work on was making the rose petals. Once again, she did great! She folded and glued each rose petal and curled the edges after I showed her once! I did put the the roses together because that is a bit tricky :-) We both glued and layered all the pieces, made the top, and the last thing that she did was pick out the stamps she wanted to use on the inside. Of course, there had to be some bing, too. Here is her finished box card. She loves it and I am so proud of her first effort on a BIG project!!

Sorry this is picture heavy and the quality is really poor, but the box was going home with her and I had to hurry in bad conditions :-) I just want to share her fine work!

I got a kick out of how she put "I (heart) me" inside the card for herself! Thanks so much for sharing in my Joy!

Now just one more pic I want to share :-) Kendyl was an outstanding gymnast at a very young age and burned out early much to our horror. She now is doing competitive cheerleading and I just want you to see what all the gymnastic training did for her.

  2. Aren't Grandchildren just amazing... made having kids worthwhile! hehehehe! Kendyl is a natural and she got it from her Grandma! I know the feeling and it is thrilling to see them soar at what they choose to do, whether it's scrapping or cheerleading! (My oldest GD is a much fun to watch). Anyway, what a beautiful project, a talented Grandaughter and a couple of proud Grandma's!!
