My nieces (ages 11 1/2 & 10) stayed over the weekend with me, and just left today. They made cards every day they were here (you can see their other cards they made on posts below).
When I showed them the color challenge Dawn just put up last night, they were all giddy and said, "maybe we can make a card for it before we have to leave tomorrow!!". So, today I went through my papers and what I had, to see if I had the right colors for the challenge. I didn't have a whole ton of stuff but I found what I thought was the closest matches for the colors.
So, after I set the stuff out for them, helped them cut their papers, then left them to create their cards while I did things around the house. They only needed a little help. But they totally came up with their own layouts and designs all on their own.
This first card was created by my niece, Victoria (she is almost 12 years old). I think she did a FANTASTIC job!! She's really good at detail and keeping a good balance on her cards.
It excites me to see my nieces (and little sisters) get excited over the things that I love and am really in to! They seemed to have a blast making things and I am happy they were able to make their cards in time before they had to head back home. They were saying before they left "I wonder if one of us will be picked!?!". I told them I would let them know!! Ha! They were pretty excited, to say the least!
