Today I would be remiss if I didn’t write about National Pi Day. As many of you know, I have 4 boys living in my home at the moment that are math whiz kids, so it is only natural that National Pi Day be celebrated in our home. The two older boys, James and Kyler made pudding pies to share with other kids at school doing the same thing.
Pi Day, the math holiday that is celebrated every March 14, is one of the newest holidays on the school year calendar, although pi as a mathematical figure has been around since the BC years, according to Hollywood Life. Pi Day got its start thanks to Larry Shaw, a man who worked in the electronics group at the Exploratorium in San Francisco in 1988.
This year, Pi Day is particularly unique, as the first few digits of pi round to 3.1416. As a result, there are several people who have dubbed today “Rounded Pi Day,” with several memes suggesting that celebrations should include a rounded pie of some shape or creation.
Today’s sketch used two White Daisy cardstock, two pieces B&T Patterned papers and two additional pieces of cardstock. If you choose a paper pack you like, will get 2 of 6 double sided papers that all coordinate so it takes the guesswork out of matching patterns and colors. The solid colored cardstock is no longer included in the My Reflections Paper Packs as the trend moved toward using more pattern papers. You can deal with this in a couple of ways. You can buy a multi-pack of cardstock which includes 2 sheets of 10 colors in the color family that matches your chosen papers, or you can purchase the cardstock from me at $1 per sheet (plus postage if not local).
Take a 12″ x 12″ and cut 1″ off the top side. Then cut 2″ off the 12″ side putting the 10″x 11″ on the left side and the 2″ strip on the right. The green dot in this case is 8″ x 11″ on left and 4″ x 11″. The blue peacock cardstock on the right is 8″ x 10″. Your mats are cut to fit your photos
