My first kid friendly workshop...

My kids have been begging and begging to have friends over to do a craft with their friends.  I've put it off and had a ton of reasons to not be able to do it, finally I got some really cute ideas from some swaps at convention and decided that it was time I did a workshop with  my kids and their friends. (The Minion card I photo'd from a friends swaps, I'll check again to see if there's a name on the card to give credit to someone, but I don't have the card.  The chipboard card had no name on the back.)

 First we made some invitations and invited several of their friends.  (I forgot to take a pic of the invite, it wasn't anything fancy though.)

Then we prepped for the big day!  I wish I had thought to take pictures of my kiddo's working hard to get everything ready.  (lesson learned, I learned a few of them today with this workshop.  :))  

I used a retired stamp set for this coloring project, stazon ink (101406) , ribbon, (retired) and glue dots (103683).  Daffodil Delight CS (119683), Wisteria Wonder CS (122922), White CS (100730), Island Indigo CS(122923),
and Black CS (121045).  On top of of those different colors, there was several punches, and die cuts to use. 
 The little 3D item we made was using the retired milk carton die, the decorative dots embossing folder, (133520) and sticky red strip, (104294) and of course my beloved Big Shot (113439).  We put candies inside of it and they took it home to their moms to say thank you.
 Look at these happy, cute kiddo's!  We had a great turn out, and I think everyone left here very happy and hands full.  (tummy's too.  They ate an entire bag of pretzels, and grapes!)
