She wanted signs to catch the attention of the local radio station, who was giving away seat upgrades. If she and her two friends each had a part of the sign then for sure they'd upgrade all three of their tickets.
For the signs, I cut out the stations logo in black foam core in two sizes. One was covered with glue and glittered black and silver. The other was coated in purple. Sandwiched in between the layers, I duct taped little battery operated LED lights. Her favorite part was using two print outs of Mr. Bieber's face as the centers of the zeros.

As for the seat upgrades, well... the radio station was only upgrading tickets from the upper levels to the floor, which they already had. Oh well... they we're rewarded by catching his attention and receiving the two thumbs up from the purple pop star.
She and her friends had a great time. Which makes it all worthwhile. Now, if only I could get the purple super fans to help clean up the whirlwind of glitter that's everywhere in the studio and wedged in the "blood, sweat and tears" paper cut I gave myself wrestling the lights onto the foam core.
Thank you Justin Bieber for the opportunity to bond with my girl, her friends and sport bits of purple glitter. I guess if you can be the purple pop-star, I can be the purple glittered craft dad.
