CED 2008 ~ With SpongeBob!

Why Spongebob? That's the question I've been asking myself for a few weeks now as it seems my dd, Amber, has focused her attention on decorating Alexxis' room with him. The grandma in me says, "She's a girl! Her room should be soft, pink, frilly, and filled with bling!" but some things are best when grandma goes with "the flow" {even when and if it's against her better judgment: grin.}

Today, our little bug, turns two! It's so hard to believe that it has been two years since I witnessed the miracle of her birth. She's completely wrapped me up in herself over the course of those two years and I'm certain that this is a feeling that will continue to grow... just like she does! So, what's a grandma to do but help to create beautiful things for her, to add to the magic, and the land of enchantment. So, yesterday, while with Amber picking up a few last minute items for her Birthday party, I grabbed several yards of two different "Spongebob" fabrics and created a few accents for her newly decorated room. The fabric I used here is simply stapled to canvas frames. I choose to do this believing in a few years, my dd will come to her senses, LOL! and then, we can simply recover them inexpensively. Feeling a tad bit guilty for feeling the way I do, I decided that if I'm jumping on the bandwagon, I may as well "enjoy the ride" so I created three watercolored drawing of dear old 'Bob. I pinned them onto the fabric cover canvases to obtain picks. Later, these will be added onto cardstock in coordinating colors and framed for Little Miss' room. I was amazed that while creating these for Bug, that I am actually beginning to think, "Hey, this guy is kind-a cute!" ROFLOL!
