I'm mad.......for making hats.

This is the hat I made to wear at the Art from the heart anniversary party this weekend. I decided to make a buggy hat. Why??? Because I love bugs and especially butterflies and beetles. I used an idea Ms Elliot at school gave me for using wire to form the hat. Mom helped me by giving me a coat hanger and bending it. then she lent me some batting, material and thread. I also got her to teach me how to use her sewing machine(which I have been trying for a long time). I told her it would be quicker than sewing the whole thing by hand. It was fun.....I made all the butterflies from paper using a template I got from a class we took. I also made a big butterfly from extra dollhouse material we had and added flowers, bling and bug stickers. Mommy seemed to really like the hat too and took alot of pictures of me making it that you can view on her blog Pages by the Sea. This is the picture of the finished hat next to Moms

I got to wear the hat to Art from the Heart today . We had a really good time. I got to take 2 mini classes and had a yummy muffin. Miss Dyan was there to talk to and show some fun things being made. And guess what ! I even won a few things....A wall hanging merrychristmas sign, a journaling kit and a Family box. I will take pictures of them tomorrow and post them. It was a really fun day. If you like my hat please leave me a comment. I would love to hear what you think. thanks for looking and hope you like it. Belle

Colour create challenge 43 posted by Belle

This is the card I made for the colour create challenge # 43 which was black, cream and burnt orange. I had a hard time finding something burnt orange but Mommy helped me find the colour. I used scraps from our scrap bin for all the colours and black gloss paper. the stamp is Sugar Nellie. I used our big shot and flower diecut to make the flower and the brads are from Moms stuff. Hope you like it. thanks for looking! Belle
