MCT What a Treat Wednesday.....{You're my superstar}

Good Morning everyone!!!
It is time for another one of my FAVORITE days over at My Creative Time~
What a Treat Wednesday!
I am sure you are all familiar with this day but if you are not it is where the MCT DT makes a treat using of course the awesome MCT stamps and dies!!!
While at the grocery store, I found these adorable baseball gumballs. Since it was opening day for my son's travel baseball team I thought they would be fun to give to the boys. So I grabbed a few and of course forgot to bring them to the game. BUT I did know that there was an upcoming What a Treat Wednesday post that these would be perfect for.
So I took that adorable Short Candy Chute from Trendy Twine and was able to place 3 gumballs in it. I wrapped some designer paper around the center and then pulled out the newly released You're My Hero and Bunch of Stitched Stars from MCT (dont forget that there is an awesome sale still going on until this Friday..all the details can be found HERE)
I stamped the sentiment onto matching designer paper and placed it aside while I die cut my stars. Now it was time to put this all together. I wrapped some of my favorite Trendy Twine~Stars and Stripes around the box and then tied it in a knot. Next I layered the sentiment onto the top of the larger star and placed the smaller star onto the top. I added a small hole where I then threaded the knotted TT through to tie it into a bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT hump day!!!!!!

Before you head out I have a little bragging to do:)
Here is my superstar~ my youngest Parker
He is so proud of his new big barrel bat he got for Christmas and didn't want to use it until his fist game of the season!

He just LOVES to catch and is very good at it as well. He sure took a beating at this game but there is no place he rather be!

Parker was our opening pitcher on Sunday. Love seeing him up on the mound but OMG the anxiety gets to be too much sometimes :)

 And here is Parker's team. They are 11U and a very young team, but with lots of hard work they should have a good season! Oh by the way...what do you think of their jerseys??? I am proud to say that they were all done ME :) Looking good boys!
