Cecily and ...Astronaut Adventure

This weekend Debby and I took Sophie and her friend Grace to the American Girl Doll Fashion Show benefit. The shows
benefit Dragonfly Forest, Inc., a non-profit organization committed to offering seriously ill children an
overnight camp experience in a safe environment, and The Saturday Club Children’s Charity Fund. The show we attended was hosted by the one and only Cecily Tynan, meterologist for ABC news. She's got a terrific personality and is even prettier in person than she is on TV.

Also this weekend Sophie finally finished her big Science project. This is one she put off as long as she could. It truly was like pulling teeth trying to get her to work on this. The assignment was to create a board game about the solar system complete with instructions, game cards, playing pieces and the board. This is when it comes in handy to have a scrapbooking mom. We used photoshop elements, the Cricut Expression, Xyron 510, paper trimmer, cardstock from my stash and punches. Here's the result:

Sophie fantastic job!!! And, my DD is 24 (soon to be 25) and has all the original American Girl dolls (with the accessories, duh) stored away for another day - but still talks about all her American Girl friends.

the monkey and all the astronauts came from one of those tubes of stuff that they sell in Michaels, ACMoore and Joann's. They have tubes of dinosaurs, tubes of horses and all sorts of other tubes.
