Special Princess Guest Designer

Today we have a special designer my daughter Lily! She is 5 and is a big school girl...LOL
I want to say thank you to the Queen for having her guest design on her blog she absolutely LOVED it, and I love that people recognize how important it is to encourage our kids to be creative!
Everything she did was her idea and she did most of it, I did help her wrap the paper around her project but other than that everything was her!
I will have blog candy I'm just not sure what leave a comment for Lily and we will get you entered.....if your not coming from the The Scrapbooking Queen please visit her as well for a second chance to win !!!
Thank you sooo much for stopping by!

Spirit day at school !!

Every Friday is spirit day at my daughters school. Their colors are green and gold so I made shirts with my Yudu in green (because the ones the PTA sells are green)......well I was told little girls DON'T do green they do pink! LOL

So new ones were made in pink with green and gold accents...perfect for a little girl. One of my friends came over and made one for her daughter then also made some cute corker bows in pink, green and gold ...because a girl has to have matching accessories.

They were so excited to be twins today and rock it Kindergarten style!
If your interested in any kinds of bows Katie does a BEAUTIFUL job they are huge, my girls LOVE them, she sells them via facebook and hopefully a site HERE to see them.

I used vinyl on my Yudu instead of the emulsion process which is easier and cheaper! So I used cartridges Create a Critter, Lyrical Letters and Mickey and Friends.
