Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

At one point recently Lexi came home and was telling me about this place mat contest they were having at school. As usual, the details were a bit sketchy.

In fact, until she arrived home prancing I didn't get the actual story.

So, she won a lunch with teachers at Evan's Hearth due to her design! This was part of National Woman's History Month.

And, here is the winning entry on "Swift" as she refers to Taylor. Love the purples. That isn't one of my go to colors myself.

Of course, I sent her with a camera, which is why I got a photo of her dessert! Top left, hiding amongst the banners.

Used a sketch from Sketchabilities although I combined the bottom two photos into one.

And also, used up a bunch of paper from my Scraptastic Club.

We are hoping that I can forward my blog post to "Swift" and she will check it all out. Since I don't know Taylor personally, I am thinking it might be a LONG SHOT. Anyone out there know her?

Yeah, wish me luck! 


  1. Looks like your daughter has inherited your talent! Great projects by both of you
