Better late than never

I promised the girls from the last stamp camp that I would post a link to the template for this box we made. The original came from Lauren Meader's blog My Time and the template can be found in this post. I used whisper white cardstock for the base of the box and stamped it with images from Season of Joy and Priceless in River Rock, Wild Wasibi, Purely Pomegranite and Groovy Guava.

One day last week when I was uploading some pictures onto my computer Emma was in the dining room playing with markers. After a few minutes of her being a little too quiet I went to check on her and this is what she looked like!

She had colored on both of her arms, took her socks off and colored the bottom of her feet and pulled her pant legs up and colored her legs!

Thank goodness it wasn't on the walls. She has colored the walls a little but I don't think this much would have come off as easily as it did in the bath. I was just around the corner but it doesn't take long to make quite a mess :)

Little monkey. I definately can't trust her with markers, can I?

Oh, Karen, I'm sure that little angel didn't do that to herself. Ian probably did it. I can't believe she would do that. Ha, ha! Actually she reminds me so much of Madison! Watch out! I wonder if she'll come home when she's in grade 1 and tell you about kissing the boys like my little angel? Knowing Emma it will probably be kindergarten! Tell Joe to be prepared!

You totally need to buy the book, "Ain't Gonna Paint No More" for Emma. It's by Karen Beaumont and it is HYSTERICAL. It's one of my sister's kids favorites. There's also Purple, Green and Yellow by Robert Munsch...also very funny!

Like Grammie, Like Mommy, Emma is definitely following in our footsteps! Give us ink or stamps and whatever surface we can find and we will make our MARK!
Love you Emma and can't wait to see you soon! You are the new version of a painted lady!
