Senior Night

Pin It
I have been busy with school ball this week and weekend.
I put on a benefit softball game, the post below tells everyone a little about it.  It went great and I had 2 weeks to pull it together.
Hopefully this will get bigger and bigger every year, and we can raise more money for the cause.
The girls were so great, they paired up with each other to create a gift basket for us to raffle off in between innings.  They were so proud of there baskets.  I hope that they learned how good it feels to make a difference for someone else, and have fun while doing it.

Now we have Senior night this week at our last home game.  I have created a couple of things to give to the girls.  We are also cooking out and having cake after the game.  I still have to run by Sams club and grab the stuff to grill out.  How I got stuck with this one is my inability to say NO.  I was really going to work on that this year.  I haven't gotten very far with that goal as you can see.

So this weekend I was a crafting, crafting, and crafting.  I found some flip flops at the dollar store and the band looked like I could turn them into laces of a softball.  I know scary how my brain works right. I painted the bands and then took a toothpick dipping it in red paint and painting every little grove.  Then I had to seal then and I used dimensional sealer.  They turned out great but I had to watch Transformers with my oldest last night and timed my painting of the red.  It took me an hour for just one pair.  It will be a while before I do that again.
Here is a picture of the flip flops.

Then I had a package of the canvas boxed frames.  So I found a print on pinterest and my hubby helped me create it in photo shop, and I printed them out on transfer paper and the ironed them on the canvas.  Well Hubby ironed them on because I burned 2.  Oh if you saw the mess ups and how I even got them done with out giving up, I will never know.  I painted the edges first and then hubby ironed them.  After all was done I found a better matching yellow paint color and had to repaint them all.  This time the print was on it and I had to be very careful not to mess it up.  Doing all this at 10:00 p.m.  Yes I worked on this stuff all day.
Here's a picture.

The picture frame I found at the dollar store while I was there to get the gift bags, and of course I had to pick one up for each girls.
I made my own gift tags and had my little one Freshman write a little something to each senior on a yellow 3x5 card and adhered it to the back side of the canvas.
Here is everything bagged and the gift tags ready to be tied:)
  Hope everyone has a great week!
