Camp, part 2

 My camp girls are so cute. Tonight we made a banner to hang in front of our cabin. All the girls were so excited when I showed them what we could do. Even though they were apprehensive, and most of them felt their art skills were seriously lacking, their banner turned out perfectly. In fact, I heard a few of them excitedly say something like: this-is-way-better-than-last-year's! It made me remember what I felt while I was preparing for my own girls camp -- excited!

All the girls are fun, enthusiastic and of course, so beautiful. I definitely can't wait to get to know them more through this whole experience!

All the girls decided hand prints on the banner were a must.

 Girls still hard at work trying to cut the stencil out.

After the stencil was cut out, I ironed down the stencil and the girls (Angela, Danielle, BriAnna and Cassie) went crazy with the fabric paint and paint brushes.

 I bought fabric spray paint, and after the girls placed their painted hands down on the fabric, we sprayed the tops of their hands to get another hand print shape. It turned out looking great and the girls loved it! After the girls were done painting the freezer stencil I went over it with the same fabric spray paint.

I peeled the freezer stencil off, and the girls sprayed the fabric down with glitter spray. Then we hot-glued the big ol' rhinestones down.

Pretty cute, huh?!
