Note: We messed up and got ahead of ourselves and taped the stripes before painting blue and forgot to peel up piece edging the blue resulting in a gap between areas

Note: This is where we realized our mistake in not removing the cross piece before taping the stripes. Kayla covered everything but the white stripe, put down a few stickers and painted that section blue. Sorry, we were too flustered for photos!
