It's dots and kids at Make It Colourful

This is a scheduled post - I will be traveling most of the May due to family issues.

Hey, it's time for kiddie challenge at Make It Colourful again - and the challenge is DOTS. Doesn't matter how they are created as long as the project has some. Oh, and a coloured image too.

The sponsor for this challenge is Little Miss Muffet stamps and it's real great cuz I now have images I wanna play with after kids picked them out, mwahahahaaaa.

Let me introduce you to the young design team and their work.


4  years old. Loves soccer, rugby, crafting, puzzles and generally knocking things over. Will not eat much else except fish fingers, ketchup, chips, toast. Oh, and cookies. Especially the homemade kind.

He used Anise for his card and coloured him with Crayola pencils. Had a free run of my stash, only got his fingers slapped when he reached for Copics. Apart for some little help with cutting he did everything totally on his own.

Ribbon and bows are on his card mainly because his sister wanted some on hers. Bloodshed and misery ensued.

And the dots were created with black sticky-back pearls. A full bloody sheet of them!

our next designer is ORLA THE MESSY
A very girly girl, so much so that I'm doubting my maternity once in a while. Loves anything she can scribble on a coffee table in the family room. Favorite foods include broccoli, boiled cabbage, smoked salmon and houmous. Yup, she's totally a toddler from a twilight zone...

And judging from that pout will be making her first moves towards modeling career fairly soon.

Orla picked out and coloured Cocoa. Her idea of making dots was draining my bling drawer from pearl strips and sticking a big round flower on Cocoa's dress. And picking some dotty ribbon.
And please note that just by looking at the colour scheme you can easily tell who's kids have been crafting, lol

Thanks for visiting and come on, let your kids to roam with your stash a while :)

Your children are gorgeous and what fabulous, fun cards they have made. You are a better woman than I letting them into your craft stash. Miss Emily has tried with mine but Grandma is too selfish so I created a box of unwanted stuff for her and they are treasures to her :)

This was very enjoyable Annika & I loved 'meeting' your kids. They have loads of talent too... I have so much fun with my grandkids when we make cards... they love the sparkles & play havoc with my Stickles... gobs & gobs & the resulting artwork is called 'glitter snakes'. It's great fun though but like you... no Copics although I did buy them a couple sets of plain old markers!
Good on ya too for getting the little ones involved.. creativity starts young!

Your babies are adorable! Love their cards too! Your a brave woman to give up your bling. I feel I don't play well with others when it comes to sharing my craft goodies! It is wonderful they have the crafting bug at an early age!

Aaaaw Niks, Cillian and Orla are adorable! Beautiful cards full of lots of artistic elements. I especially love the dinosaurs and the pearls on Cillian's card.
