Super Wyatt!

One of my little guy's favorite shows is Super Why, and if you've got a 3-4 year old boy or girl, then you probably know the show I'm talking about. It's on PBS and a great show to teach different reading skills. There's also a great Super Why www.pbskids.org game online for the kiddies to play and learn.

Well, the main character's name is Wyatt, and his "alter ego" is Super Why. Can you see where I'm going with this!?! I found this "W" in a bin at my LSS, and had to have it.

When I got home, I painted it with white paint all over, then covered it with some SU! paper from one of last year's Simply Scrappin' Kits. The ribbon is wrapped around and stapled to the back. The "Wyatt" letters are AC Thickers.

The stamped images came from Pink Cat Studio's Billy set. I colored little Wyatt in the same colors as the character, and even added (my favorite part!) his Super Spelling Wand for some detail! He looks pretty dog gone close, but the real Super Why is wearing sneakers and has a book on his chest. I didn't want to deal with the microscopic book, so I just used Lauren's idea with the letter from PTI's Simple Alphabet.

I used markers on the sentiment circle for the different colors, and mounted it on top of a Heidi Swapp star that's on top of a SU! punched star! The acetate adds stability and shine! It's all very dimensional.

Wyatt loves his special letter, so that makes me happy. It will now go up on his wall beside his bookcase.

And now I'm off! I'm planning a (probably my last) SU! style Stamp-a-Stack for this Friday, so I'm busily planning cards. It's extremely difficult for me to plan 5 (they make 4 of each one) different cards that are impressive looking, but quickly duplicated, so it's taking some time. I've got two done, but still have three to go! I'll show you one or two of them tomorrow. You can tell me what you think!

Till then...
