This is Tracy's 8.5 x 11 sketch on 12x12 for pictures from 2002 - DS birthday party. The journaling reads in part "For Matt's 7th birthday, we set up an 'excavation site' at Hawthorne Park. Stephanie and Colton were staying with us that week, too. It was over 100 degrees that day, so the kids alternated between digging for bones and resting in the shade. Pete and Matt did not take any shade breaks.
The day before the party, I poured plaster into bone molds that I shaped in the sand box in our backyard. Steph and Lindsey helped wrap the party favors in layers of foil, then dipped them into the plaster to form dinosaur eggs. Before Matt's party, we buried the bones in the sand at Hawthorne Park and strung the flag banner around it. This was so fun for all the kids, but most of all for Matt, my dinosaur lover. A few of the bones were never found, but here are Pete and Matt with their T-Rex."

I want to come to your parties! Every little kid would love this idea. You did a wonderful job putting all the memories down. I like that you used just the little strip from the wheel, makes it look like it was a stamp.
