Hey Hey and Good Day! Welcome to the little Prince Blog Hop! I am so thrilled to have you visit. I want to thank the abundantly sweet & talented Jessica Kephart for inviting me to participate. I hope her little prince Mason had a wonderful birthday! This is Day 2 of the hop. Don't forget to hop again tomorrow, this is a 3 day hop! You won't want to miss what all of the crafty goodness this group of A-Ma-Zing Designers has created for the Little Princes in their lives!
There are amazing Prizes on each stop of this hop, so be sure not to miss a single one of them! You have 5 Days (Through April 5th at Midnight CST) to get through all of the stops on this Hop. We really don't want you to just rush through, comment and follow for the Prizes! Rather, we would love for you to stop in when you can, throughout the week, take your time, enjoy and learn from the projects, and comment and follow the Designers along the way!
Well, I have 2 special little princes in my life. Dalton is 13 and Gunner is almost 11. Believe it or not, I purchased the foundation for this project about 5 years ago! Bazzill created the super fun coin holder seen here:
I was always going to do one for each of my kids and it just kept getting put off. This blog hop was the perfect push to finally get them done! Here is the first one:
I just filled each spot with the boy's personality traits, hobbies, fun facts and favorite things. It took a while digging through all of my stash to find just the right items. I used an Action Wobble under Dalton's i-pod, peace sign & rubix cube badges. And, under Gunner's motorcycle, guitar & smiley face badge. I didn't like the interior straight black, so I "painted" the insides with some making memories paints and a foam brush.
Here are some closer shots:
And Project #2:
I am really pleased with how they turned out. There are so many different ways you could do this "all about me" collage, even without the coin holder. These will make great decor for the shelves in my kids rooms! The "coin holders" are something the "little princes" can look back on and enjoy, even when they aren't so little anymore! (insert tears here LOL)
I truly hope you liked these :)
