Toddler Layout-Recharging and Child's Play DT call

Child's Play is a relatively new Challenge being just six months old. Two of my Lasting Memories DT sisters Karen and Haven are current DT's for Child's Play. The Challenge takes a different kind of approach using a child's game or book as the inspiration for two challenges a month.

Currently Child's Play is having a DT call. The requirements for trying out for the team are to post the DT Call and to do a layout based on the inspirational picture, which in this case is a corn popper. Boy did that bring back memories! LOL

So for my layout for the DT call I decided to focus on the colored balls in the corn popper.

Tip: To make the flags I used Flatback Diamond Toothpicks and folded a piece of washi tape around it. I then cut a flag notch. Very easy peasy!!!!

Journaling: To sit and do nothing is rare for you. You must be recharging your batteries!


Cardstock and Paper: Paper Studio Random Dots-Multi, Bazzill White, Scraps
Alphabet: Provocraft
 Washi Tape: Target
Toothpicks: Diamond
