Emily - This is my pond! To be honest I have nothing else to say.

Jeanine - "Polka Dot Pinwheels"
I've been wanting to try and make these pinwheels for scrapbooking - and maybe to add to a summer centrepiece on the patio. When I discovered that today's prompt for my photography class was polka dots... I had my motivation.
They are pretty easy to make. Just cut paper into squares mine were 6X6 and 5X5. With a ruler, draw an X from each corner. Then cut along each line toward the centre leaving about 1/2 and inch uncut at the centre. Fold every other corner into the middle (I adhered with a glue dot). Then put a brad through the centre of the pinwheel. I just stuck a skewer up into the glue dots/paper/brad when I was finished, but you could also use a hot glue gun to adhere it to the back of each pinwheel. It's fun!
