Scrapbooking Tuesday - T on Tuesday

Hello There

I am unusually late today with my Scrapbooking Tuesday and T for Tuesday post.  But it is still Tuesday so here I am. 

Today's T is for Two Boys - the subject matter for today's layout......

I try to be good and drink lots of water every day and here you see me being a good girl!  My glass is not special.  Just a run of the mill glass from Ikea.  And here you can see my layout of My Two Boys.  Mr Hettie and Dobby acting like a baby!

Do you see what I see?  Sunshine!  Normally I would try to avoid sunshine across my photographs but as we haven't seen much of it around I thought I would share some. I cut around the bottom of the flourish with birdie on the top left corner and tucked a piece of dark brown bazzill and the top of one photo so as not to cut the birdie off. 
The main paper is MME with Bazzill for the plain papers, some of which are Snippets. The Buddies piece is Cosmo Cricket cut from the same piece as the layout I shared last week.  Some Maya twine tied with a MME button (NBUS that I paid a lot for and just hoarded until now!), and a tag cut from TH die and the strip from the edge of the paper aka a Snippet.
The text was cut from TH die and then I went over them with TH Distress Stickles in Antique Linen.
I punched some bunting with my SU punch in tan and dark brown Bazzilll and also added some paper ribbon cut using TH die.  I also did some stamping on the background colour with my TH flourish stamp and Gathered Twigs DI.
Another little strip of the edge strip with a row of hearts cut using an EK Success punch topped with a Love ticket from TH.  I thought I would share my coaster with you.  This is one of the first Honiton lace pieces I made some 18 years or so ago.  The coaster itself now pretty scratched and marked from constant use but Teddy still looks good inside. 
Right, that is me done for today.  Thanks for popping by.  Don't forget to take your drink over to Elizabeth.  As I have used Snippets I shall take this over to the Snippets Playground, but as it is so late I had better be quiet so as not to wake anyone!

Hettie, I love your scrapbook layout. I have two boys too who are inseparable just like yours. I also love the lace teddie in your coaster. I make bobbin lace as well!

What a stunning scrapbook page. It is beautiful. I only have one boy, and he is sticking to me like glue ever since the wind chills hit negative numbers again this week.

Teddy is adorable. It's amazing how much abuse he must have endured over the years. And to think he's still in perfect shape, too.

Thanks for joining T(ea) today. It' was fun to see you and the boys during T time.

Making lace almost seems like a lost art to me...what a precious teddy you made Hettie!
Hope you had a Happy T Day

What a wonderful LO! I'm drinking water more these days too, though not in a pretty cup or glass, right out of the bottle for me.
Happy T-day and thanks for sharing and always leaving such nice comments on my blog. Yes I do notice you visit regularly. :-)

Your lace teddy is gorgeous too.

Glad you got a shot of the sun so you know you weren't hallucinating! Teddy is darn cute and beautifully made. You have lots of patience. More than me I can tell you!

Wonderful layout. Mr Hettie is looking handsome and Dobby looks cute!
Your lace teddybear is wonderful. Amazing it is still protected after all these years.

Karen Petitt said...

Gorgeous layout, Mr Hettie and Dobby scrub up well, and as Sarn has said, damn that bear is awesome! I have never tried lace making - don't think I'd have the patience, but I love the fact that you have protected it while still using it. Really gorgeous that is xx
