I love the kits that Merrilee has chosen for the 3 Kits 3 Ways challenge this week. I’ve made a page using some photos of our grandson and his fun backyard painting afternoon.


Journaling: Bess takes the easel out and sits it on the patio when the weather is nice. Then Mark & Mary Paul can paint and she just hoses them off if it is nice and warm! On this day, our sweet little Mark made a particularly wonderful painting with lots of different bright colors & plenty of orange! He was very, very proud of it. Afterwards, Mark & Mary Paul ate popsicles before the hosing off process began! I love it when Bess sends me photos it helps me not miss the children so much, and lets us see just what they are doing

I cut it into three pieces and recolored each of the pieces . . . merged and then “stickered” it.
