James is 6!

My James turned 6!  Where has the time gone?  He has been such a fun kid to have around!

We went to Peter Piper Pizza with family for lunch, then got to go to Sunsplash water park that night.  It was a fun birthday!PaPa & BrynleeI can't remember the last time I was this excited about anything!  James did a happy dance when he opened the "New Super Mario Bros."  Wii game.
I made a San Francisco Giants cake for the occasion. 
We love James and his cheerful personality!

Fabric Silhouettes

I made these silhouettes of the kids using a window frame I got at a garage sale.

Here's how:  First take a profile picture, enlarge it to the size you want, and print it. 

Cut it out, then trace it onto the paper side of Heat n Bond.

Iron that to the wrong side of your fabric.
Cut out the image.

Peel off the Heat n Bond paper and iron onto background fabric.

Frame it.  I used spray adhesive to stick the fabric in each panel, then I hot glued trim around the edges.

I paid $1.50 for the window frame, and $2 for the trim.  I had the other fabric and Heat n Bond already, so it was an inexpensive and fun project!
