art camp and daring card makers




It's a busy morning, we are on our way to art camp, but I wanted to share the sandcastles the kids made for practice for camp. Our theme is beach so these are sandcastles made out of sand and cornstarch to help them stay together forever. We also added glass and shells and flags. We will be making them tomorrow in camp. Let me know if you want the recepie. The third picture is for the daring card makers dare this week, to make a card using a tag or packaging of some sort. Mine has a tag from one of my favorite sweatshirts. It was a cool tag, so I just cut it off and added it to my card and embelished. Easy fun. Thanks for looking.

I love your card and I've never seen anything quite like those cute sandcastles. Or have I? We once happened to be on holiday at Harrison Hotsprings in Canada where they were hosting the world sandcastle building championships. They were absolutely awesome.

Hope you enjoy the camp.
