I know spring is officially here but day after day of dark, rainy days has been getting me down so I decided to make a little piece of scrapbook art to brighten my mood, as well as the wall in Emma's room. Since her birth I have sung "You Are My Sunshine" to her- it was the song that soothed her when she cried and the song we now sing together nightly as part of her bedtime routine. The lyrics, that have become such an important part of our everyday life, seemed like the perfect choice to make into a wall hanging. To make this project I cut 7 one-inch wide strips from different pieces of yellow 12x12 patterned paper as well as 1 piece of grey to use for the rays of the sun. I cut the sun from a piece of yellow cardstock, glued it on a piece of patterned craft paper, then glued down the 8 strips at different intervals. I used random yellow letter stickers, some chip letters painted grey, and my own handwriting to put the lyrics onto the rays of the sun. Now all I need to do is slip it into a frame and hang it up in Emma's room.And I'm hoping the sun takes the hint and comes out a little bit more.
