Don’t tell my grandson David that you saw his picture on my blog.  He’ll shoot me.  But I had to post it because 1) he’s adorable, 2) he’s my BFF and 3) he did a very good job at following the rules.  He made this picture to give to his 1st grade teacher on his last day of school.  I gave him the retired stamp set Crayola Kids and gave him his rule.  He could use as many colors as he wanted however he could only use a color one at a time.  He must close the stamp pad and clean the stamp each time he changed colors.  He did a great job a following the rules and for a 6 year old, I think he did a fine job

When I went to Grandparents day at school, when his teacher addressed the class, she would say, “Frieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeends?”  And all of the students would respond in unison by saying, “Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees.”  Too cute.  So this picture is of him and his teacher and he is saying, “Frieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeends?”

 Grandkids……They are fabulous.  I am so Blessed!!!!!

My grandson Joshua has gotten plenty of use of Grandma’s Stampin’UP! products this year as he has had several assignments that require him to make a visual project. This coursework is a cereal box book report about Charlotte’s Web. His assignment was to create the book cover on the front of the box and other requirements for the sides and back. Mom took charge of the sides and back, Grandma took charge of the front.

We used punches, embossing folders, textureplates and some dies as well. Joshua has become a pro at running the Big Shot,
sponging with the ink pads, tracing with the light box and of course, punching.

You will recognize most of the punches of each character except maybe Templeton the Rat. His body is made from the Owl Punch. His tail and ears were made using the Bird Punch.

Joshua is one Terrific Grandson. His score on this project? 105%
