I was showing my daughter the cover that I’m making for my Andrew Jackson Stephens binder.  My son – who is a graphic designer – created the outline of a tree with the silhouettes of 5 men in the tree. When she looked at the image, she told me that the 5 shadows looked like a “boy band” and she told me I should title it “The Andrew Jackson 5″.  Well, she caught me at just the right moment and I found that extremely funny and giggled about it the rest of the night.

I told her that I’d like to use her fingerprints to make the leaves for the tree.  (An idea that I totally stole from the Budget-Minded Bride blog.) So I thought I’d give an update with a picture of my cover as well as a picture of my daughter diligently coloring her fingertips with highlighters to use like rubber stamps to create the leaves of my tree.  I just love it!  She drew the line, however, when I asked her if I could use her hair like a paint brush to fill in the grass.  I guess helping out mom and “being one with the tree” only goes so far…
