painting 101

For the last two days Brittany and I have been painting the dancing silhouettes for Ella's party coming up. I learned some very helpful tips after our first day of painting that made day two much much easier.

My first mistake on day one was doing this project while Ella was awake. She of course wanted to be apart of the painting party as well. (which I don't blame her, we were making it look so fun!) So I set up her easel and gave her a brush and some paint. That was good while it lasted (5 minutes) but then she wanted to help paint on my paper...

Day two went much more smoother. We finished all of them while Ella and McKenna both napped and I outlined them in black sharpie first which also made it MUCH faster to paint. 
So today I am on to my next project which is party favors. I am working on a dance playlist with some of Ella's favorite dance songs that I want to burn on blank c.d's.  Bob told me that iTunes doesn't let you burn more than 5 c.d's of the same playlist! What?! Have you guys ever heard of that?  Hopefully thats not true cause that will put a major kink in my plan.

They look adorable! Can't wait to see the finished project.

Bob's right....iTunes will only let you burn a purchased song a certain number of times. I *thought* the magic number was 7, but it may be 5.
