Sketch #50

Here is my first ever DT assignment layout for The Scrappiest! I have had these pics for a LONG time and never done anything with them and since this month we celebrate President's Day, I thought it was a good opportunity to use them. The fun thing about these pics is the story behind son had to do a Living Musuem project in third grade, and we together selected George Washington (well, I kind of picked it cuz I had a ton of info on him and thought he would be easy, my son wanted to do Emmitt Smith...) So almost every kid in the class rents a costume for their character...well, I am a HUGE cheapskate and I refused to pay for a costume. So I made one out of paper! The hat is made of paper with curly ribbon for his hair. THe shoes are my crocs with paper silver buckles and my knee highs. And the front of his shirt is paper that I curled. The suit jacket we already had...well, he to this day is totally embarrassed his MOM MADE his costume..but the teacher said it was the best one she had I think it turned out good. Just had to document this fun story for my grandkids! Don't forget to hop on over to THE SCRAPPIEST and check out the other DT members awesome layouts, great stuff, and if you want to try your hand at the sketch you can and maybe win a great prize, just link your project in Mr Linky on Liz's blog!
