PTI & Basic Grey Cards

Same stamp and sentiment from PTI and Basic Grey paper that I forgot I had. It's always nice to find something you had completely forgotten you had!

Altered tag

A tag I got to make today. The image is from graphic 45 steampunk pack with a Tim Holtz film strip mounted on rubbish plastic. The altered piece is made from fimo and the ticket stub is my new PTI die with Tim Holtz admit one stamp, a little small but it will do! Thanks for the butcher twine Emma I love it!

More of Master Eli

Taken in a dark bathroom with an iphone does not lead to good quality photos, Fimo embellishments made from moulds and rubbed with goldfinger (thanks Anne!) I in vain tried to make a parrot out of TH bird die but it really didnt work! Used DMVC Once Upon a Time stack, it's too pretty to use but alot of the time you have to cut it up to use it

Love this LO, TH lost and found stack (again!!) with TH tattered flowers die cut out of a dictionary. Hope DH doesnt want to play scrabble any time soon! The clock and flower centre piece are fimo embellishments I made and the bling is from an old necklace

Few more for the Book of Firsts

1st time meeting Amy & Richie (godparents)

1st vest- actual vest, it fit into 8x8 with room to spare!

1st Socks- actual socks, at 3 months he finally grew out of them but is now in limbo because new born socks are still massive for him

Could never thank the nurses in SCBU for the care and cuddles they gave Eli, still get a lump thinking about how kind and thoughtful they were. They do such an amazing job, if I hadn't picked a career I would be doing  Special Care Nursing after seeing the amazing job they did

You at 3 months

This is me trying to go through my hoards of paper and just use it, I've far too much to be picky now! On a good note, Eli is bigger than the deodorant can now!

My tape dispenser rocks!

Take 1 sheet of 12x12 Lost & found from Tim Holtz ( I used the little square page for a collage look)

Roughly sand your tape dispenser (i used a nail file!) for some grip and cover in modge podge. I only have gloss, really have to get around to getting the matte

Layer on the paper, put a layer of modge podge on. I massaged with my hands as you can tell from my dirty hands. On tricky corners add slits in the paper and fold around the dispenser

Finished- now to add 3 coats of modge podge

One tres cool tape dispenser! 
*Tips- makes sure you push any pockets of MP out from behind the paper.
Don't use thin paper or too thick card, it won't work
After the first coat of MP check on it to make sure none of it has lifted

Offically in <3 with Modge Podge and now I get to peel my fingers for the afternoon!

Secret Smile

I had to think how to spell Smile and shouted into DH "smile is s-l-i-m-e isn't it".Silence.
 "Think about that he says..."
I nearly gave Eli a secret slime lol
I signed up to STS (scrap, theme, sketch blog) and they have a brilliant pack they email you out monthly for inspiration. I just got mine (after I scrapped this) but the LO is nearly the same as their sketch for January.... weird!! So I'll use this :)

Family first Christmas

I was going to do a sentimental page but then I though ahh hell let's go tacky!! And sometimes that's the best way for Christmas, I put the journalling on Santa's beard and used some cheap foam stickers for Christmas, still haven't got a decent family photo after 14 weeks!
