Turkey, What Turkey?

I wanted to share this little something with you guys. I have not crafted as such lately so have no cards to show you. There's just not enough hours in the day. But I did manage to help Megan with a project for school and I thought you might like to see.

The other day she brought home a picture of a turkey and we were asked to work on it all together as a family. We had to disguise the turkey so that it wouldn't end up as Thanksgiving dinner. Paul didn't have time to help and Jake wasn't really that interested either so it was up to us girls. Megan wanted to turn her into a Flower Princess. So I drew a load of leaves on some construction paper and gave Megan a pair of scissors to cut them out. Once she had done that I gave her a couple of my flower punches and some more construction paper and let her punch away to her hearts content while I set about sticking the leaves down. Megan made a large pile of flowers. She really had fun with the punches. We also made her a dress of yellow construction paper and then glued all the flowers all over both the dress and the leaves. Megan wanted her to sparkle so I stuck sparkler stickers in the middle of all the flowers and used a glitter pen down all the leaves. So here she is finished our flower princess. Do you think it's a good enough disguise?

FYI - Friday we are off on holiday to Disneyworld so there will be no crafting posts till December. However if you want to read about our adventure I will be attempting to keep the family blog up to date with news of our adventures. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I will see you all again in December.
