It was a lot of fun seeing Elmo, Zoe, Big Bird, Ernie and Bert go through lots of adventures that teach kids that they can be anyone, do anything and go anywhere with the power of imagination. After the show, my DD told me she wants to be a pirate just like Ernie. Here is a close up of how thrilled she looked when Elmo first appeared on stage...
I used Bazzill cardstock, Papertrey dies (block and script alphabet, limitless layers oval) and SU and Cosmo Cricket patterned paper.
If there is one thing about my DD, it is that she is passionate about meeting her favourite friends. Two years ago was her Dora phase. Last year was her Barney and Thomas phase. I had to research where these characters will make an appearance so we can make sure we are there, front and centre.
Here is the layout I made with her meet and greet with Dora. I obviously have not discovered Papertrey yet at that time :).
Then, here are the layouts I made on the two occasions she met Barney, BJ and Baby Bop. It was priceless to see how her eyes lit up the minute Barney appeared on stage. Barney was like a rock star to all those kids.
|See how happy she looked at the sight of Barney!|
And after the show, she had to have her special hug with Barney.
And here she is with Thomas...
Whew! That was a lot of stalking but very well worth the effort!
