Meeting Jan Brett
Let me start off by saying that I adore Jan Brett's books. As a mom and teacher, they are fantastic books to read with children. The stories are gentle and the artwork amazing. So, I was thrilled when I saw a sign that she was visiting my little city! I called my bff, a fellow teacher, and we made plans to attend.
Ms. Brett gave a wonderful presentation, which included drawing her newest character, and her words were full of encouragement for the kids listening. Then, we got to meet her one on one, where she signed our books, took photos with us, and had a conversation, which included her asking questions too.
Okay, so here are the layout details: The background paper is by The Paper Studio. The egg one is called "Random Easter Eggs." The pink and blue are from a stack called "A Day at the Beach." I used cuts from 3 Cricut cartridges. The swirls are from Home Decor. The bunny and eggs are from the Easter mini, and the font is Storybook. The felt flowers are from Creative Impressions. I used brown and cheasnut roan chalks, and a pink zig to color the inside of the bunny's ear.
