D is for Dinosaur
Drew has got this "thing" for dinosaurs right now. There are, according to Drew, dinosaurs hiding in our closets, drains, mouths, even our belly buttons. So when I decided to redecorate his room I knew that he would love something that had to do with dinosaurs. I bought four 5 x 7 canvases and with a big dose of inspiration from BasicGrey's dinosaur line I started working on some fun decorations. I would have just used the actual chipboard dinosaurs from BasicGrey but they just weren't the right colors. Instead I recreated them by simply tracing around each one and cutting them out of cardstock. I must say these were a lot of fun to make and Drew absolutely loved them!
Here are some pictures of each one. I think the first one is my favorite!
The two that have the "J" and the "D" are kind of plain and I'll probably end up adding something to them, I just don't know what yet! I was in such a rush to get them up so I could surprise Drew.
I couldn't leave Jackson out so even though he's not sharing a room with Drew just yet he got his own canvas too. I hope some day he likes it as much as Drew does!
I can't believe that it's almost 1:00 a.m. and I'm still up! Yes it will be a rough day tomorrow but we are in the middle of tornado season and apparently we are going to have a yucky night! The other night I actually said to Mike, "I can't believe we've had such a mild season this year. The only time we heard sirens was in January!" I had spoke to soon. At about 12:00 a.m. we were awakened by those lovely sirens. I hate that sound!! I am not looking forward to tonight at all!!
