Sleepover and Any Hero notes...

 Last weekend we had all five neighbor kids over for a sleepover to give the parents a night out to celebrate a birthday.  Three girls and two boys.  Add them to Ernie's two and can you say "chaos!". 
Actually, I think it went rather smoothly...
 
Besides making cookies and watching movies, we made Any Hero cards in my studio.  With the exception of two, everyone made it in there at one point or another during the overnight.  Haley, the oldest of the five (age 12), almost never left (future cardmaker maybe? Hmmm...).  The rule was, for every card you make, you must write a note to a hero thanking them for their service. 
It was a very successful rule!
 
They used Scrappy Backgrounds and partial fronts that I hadn't turned into anything yet (upper right hand corner).  I showed them HOW to make Scrappy Backgrounds (front four).  And we tried our hand at using Dylusions Ink Spray (the middle bunch)...
 
  
The final result is that I have 18 Any Hero notes to include in my next shipment to
Operation Write Home... YAY!!
