{Joelle's} Best Friends

My middle child, Joelle, is a lover of all animals but especially dogs. Unfortunately, she is allergic. Go figure! Her birthday is coming up and she requested Bolt (a Disney movie about a dog) and pool party. Unfortunately, I don't have a Bolt stamp but I do have these dogs. And for water??? Well, I drew in some water lines and water colored over the hydrant and added a beach ball that I made using my circle punch.

To make this beach ball:
1. Punch out 1 circle from 7 different colored card stock using the 1-1/4" circle punch.
2. Cut 6 circles in half and then cut a third out of the same half circled card stock to make a "pie" wedge.
3. Place 6 pie wedges of card stock onto the full circled card stock with each point in the center of the circle. The edges of the your pie wedge card stock may extend beyond the circle base.
4. Trim the edges.
5. Punch 1 circle using the 1/4" circle punch for the center of the ball.
