Rory and I used Kris's "Finish it Friday" inspiration to complete Rory's school Valentine's. As soon as I got home from work (and while Poppy was making awesome dinner magic) Rory and I set our sight on finishing up her favor treats for school. I have to say that Rory did a fantastic job gluing kitty to the background. She did them all herself. I gave her a ZIG 2 way glue pen instead of a glue stick. I was amazed how much easier it was for her to use. I think the blue color of the glue is what helped. She seemed to really have control over the glue and no mess at all. If I remember Elmers made a blue glue stick at one time, but I have no idea if it is still available. I always have ZIG on hand and now I will gladly share it with Rory.
Now for a few basics ... The print and cut of kitty was of course done with the new ZING. I have so much success with PnCs now! I am amazed by how quick and easy they are to do. I used MTC to make a shadow layer, a quick copy and paste made 2 shadows. I flipped and mirrored one and them welded them to make a base to sandwich the plastic bag into. I made the tag for the front in MTC and did a PnC as well. Rory used pop dots to attach them. We had a great time assembling these.
I did cut all the parts prior so that they were ready to go. We think the kids are going to like the treats inside, but more importantly Rory and I had a great time sitting together at the craft table. She told me when she grows up she is going to own a craft store. I 'bout fell off my chair when she said "and Nonna I'll make you the manager"! Yup... Just what I need another JOB! Thanks again Kris for the goal setting inspiration. I already know whats on deck for next Friday! Have a great weekend everyone. SUPER BOWL SUNDAY! GO GIANTS!!!
