School Stuff & Crafts My Sister Made

Hi everyone!  Long time, no see...  again...  I have not actually made any kind of cards/crafts in over a month!  It's about time that I start setting aside some time to do that...  I don't have a card to share today, but I do have some school projects that I thought were cute & fun, so I decided to post them for ya!  I'm also going to show you some cute projects that my sister has been working on (she's very talented, but she doesn't think so)...  :)  I'm so sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time, I'm going to try and be better... 

This was a super simple project that my sister made using some of the scrapbook paper from my stash.  We just found a cute patterned paper, chose solid colored cardstock to match, and then she traced their hands and stacked them...  VOILA!    I think it came out really adorable!
Here's a "no soliciting" sign that she made.  She just picked up a frame, some scrapbook paper & stickers, and some ribbon and put this little beauty together!

My sister also made this Cat in the Hat poster that goes along with the new common core standards in Kindergarten.  When she showed me this, my jaw dropped!  Super cute!
We had our annual Family Literature Night last week and my booth was featuring the author/illustrator, Mo Willems.  I LOVE HIS BOOKS (and so do the kids)!  To make this poster, I just sketched out the characters, colored them with chalk, and traced them with black Sharpie.  The idea for coloring with chalk is a technique I stole borrowed from my sister.  :)

Saw the idea for these balloons on Pinterest (a website I feel I may be addicted to).  These were extremely easy to make; just a balloon and a Sharpie...

Here's a shot of the entire booth all put together!  Here I am with my friend, Shelly...  We aren't too cool to wear a pigeon headband!  The headbands were really easy to make and the kids LOVED them!  It's literally just a blue circle, white circle, black circle, and yellow triangle.  The kids glued them together, then we attached them to a sentence strip and put them on their little noggins.  It was really cute to see all of the little "pigeons" walking around the auditorium!  :)

Well, there's a little snapshot of what I've been up to...  I hope to be back soon with some sort of card!  :)  Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
