My kids make me smile :)

We like to make silly faces for pictures :)
These are a few of my favorites that we took last week. 

And finally, big smiles for a normal picture :)

I ♥ my kids!

Crayon Art!

{Look what I made!}

To make it I used:
64 pack of crayons (I just picked out all the white, black, grays and browns)
24 pack of crayons (to double up on the prettier colors)
16x20 canvas
Hot Glue gun
Blow dryer

I just glued the crayons to the canvas, but I made sure to have the label on the crayons out because I thought that made it look cuter lol. 

Then, I angled the canvas probably at a 15 degree angle.  DEFINITELY lay a towel underneath!  And behind if you can as well!  It took me a bit to get the right angle and distance between the crayons and blowdryer.  I learned to melt the bottoms of the crayons first, then angle the blowdryer upward.  If you keep it downward it just blows the melted crayon everywhere.  The melting takes time but the results are so much fun! 

And that's all there is to it!!
