American Crafters Round 1 Project

Today's the day to go vote over at Nap Time Crafters!!! :) Everyone votes for your 3 favorite projects, so if one of those just happens to be mine, that's fine with me! ;) Voting is open through Sunday.

It was kind of crazy trying to finish this project with a poor little boy who is not feeling too well. Jackson is such a needy boy at times. ;) But it was fun and I'm glad to be done! It's kind of intense having only 3 days from beginning to end (including actually coming up with an idea) to complete a project! But it was fun. I'm anxious and nervous to see what other amazing stuff people came up with! 

So here are some pictures and details of what I did:

Meet the "Special Delivery Truck"

Here's my super corny description I wrote up for the details:

Don't just hand over your Valentine's Day card or chocolates or gift to your special someone, but deliver them in style with this "Special Delivery Truck". Measures approximately 8 inches tall by 12.5 inches long. The back opens up and has more than enough room to deliver whatever special items you want to share with your loved one. Filled with 100% Polyester Fiberfill, this truck delivers nothing but softness. With children around, it's sure to be enjoyed long after that special day is over. Deliver your love all year long. :)

Can I just tell you, Hunter had already adopted and taken over this truck before I could even finish it. His favorite thing to put in it so far? His Little People tractor. He wasn't so happy after I put the button on since he has a harder time opening it now. But he's already toted it all over the house.

Three days isn't a lot of time to fix mistakes, so it's not exactly how I had hoped it would turn out, but it works. So I would do it a little bit different if I were going to make another one (probably not). But it's fun. :)

Last night Neil told me I should be an squirmy truck driver in the window. lol. Perhaps I will need to add a few more details. ;)

Anyway, the top 10 move on to next week, and I think I would love to move on, but I'd also be totally fine to not. ;) It's kind of crazy. Love the other projects too! So good luck to everyone! And thanks again for this great opportunity!!! :)

So go vote!!

Voting is now over, but I am linking this project up to the linky parties this week! :) Check my side bar, or come back later (I'm going to create a little button list at the bottom of my posts so you can see right there where I linked to.)
