Spending The Day With 3 Of My 4 Nieces!

Yesterday my sister took her oldest daughter to go Prom Dress shopping. She asked my mom to watch her younger 3 daughters. Nee Nee (me) went over to help. I took my expression, gypsy, and all that goes with it over to help my mom. I mentioned making shirts that the girls could paint from stencils cut from freezer paper. Mom said go for it. The 2 older girls chose what they wanted on their shirts and I picked something out for the youngest. I figured Hannah (10) would want to help me cut out her stencil, but no. Heidi (5) wanted to do everything she could. 

All 3 shirts fit into a challenge - lucky me. Hannah wanted "Girls Rule Boys Drool" She picked out a green shirt and painted with PINK, yellow and blue. We picked a crown for Henley (2). We got a PINK shirt and painted the crown yellow with PINK jewels. I am entering these into My Pink Stamper's first Blog Hop! 

Don't know why the color washed out.

Heidi wanted a shirt she could wear to her sister's,  Holly (16), basketball games. They are The Tonkawa Buccaneers. Their colors are orange and black. SKULLS and CROSSBONES are always a big hit with the Bucs. Heidi decided on a flag with a SKULL and CROSSBONE and the word Bucs. I am entering this shirt in Flaunt it Fridays  -FIF #7 - MINI MONSTERS Skull challenge.

Hannah and Heidi had so much fun helping with their shirts. Henley wanted to, but I didn't think she was old enough. She did, however, make her own design...


I don't have any stamp sets yet (on my wish list). I can use PINK though.
"Girls Rule Boys Drool" was cut on at 1" from Plantin SchoolBook using Roly Poly. The "drool" drops were cut out at 3" from Paper Dolls for Everyday. They were welded to the word Droll using my Gypsy.

The "Crown" was cut at 12.47" from Paper Doll Dress Up.

I don't have Mini Monsters, but I do have a couple carts that have SKULLS and CROSSBONES (a must have for my family). The flag with SKULL and CROSSBONES was cut at 6.35" from Paper Doll Dress Up. "Bucs" was cut at 1" from Plantin SchoolBook using Roly Poly.

Here are all 3 of my girls in their new shirts.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm going to check yours out some more.
Don't get me wrong. I do love my Imagine. I knew there were kinks & would be for a while. I have been one of the lucky ones that has not had trouble with their Gypsy. I know it will work out in the end, it's just frustrating right now.
