Drew in the Hat
Did you know that March 2 is Dr. Seuss’s birthday? I’m guessing if you have a child in school you probably already knew that. Our school always does a week long celebration with fun ways for the kids to show their Dr. Seuss appreciation. There is usually a “dress as your favorite Dr. Seuss character day” or “bring your favorite Dr. Seuss book day.”
When Drew was in kindergarten they made their own “Cat in the Hat” hats in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. He looked so cute and was so proud of his creation that of course I had to make him pose for a few photos. In typical Drew fashion, he hammed it up with his silly faces and cute poses. I seldom have to worry about getting a fun picture with him, with the exception of a year or so during his pre-teen era. If you say the right things he’ll still ham it up for the camera. It might take a little more prodding than it used to, but generally he doesn’t shy away from attention.
I used the title “Drew in the Hat” to tie the event of The Cat in the Hat and Dr. Seuss’s birthday with Drew’s hat creation. It’s a simple switch of “cat” with “Drew” that easily ties it all together. I always enjoy finding ways to make my title clever, when I can.
To embellish I used stars and arrows as the main pieces. On the largest star on the left page, (the one with the dots,) I used brads to cover a few of the dots. This was a fun and easy way to add a little dimension to a simple star die cut. You could also use enamel dots or Nuvo drops to get the same look.
