Pooh Spring tissue box

Good Tuesday morning all
Over at Practical Scrappers

This week's challenge is Rubons
Even if you are not a fan of rub-ons you probably have some around to use. So here's a great reason to do just that! Check out designers inspiration and pull out some rub-ons to use on your project. The deadline to enter is Saturday at 5 pm Eastern Time.

This was a challenge for me I don't really use rub-ons so it is very a simple pattern.

I was inspired by the Beautiful spring weather we have been having to make this tissue box cover and by the very talented Cindy .
I used Design Studio and Cindy Mcvey's cut file for the tissue box.
Cricut cart Pooh fonts for all the characters
Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet all cut @3ins

Pooh and Friends cart for
Fence cut @ 2ins
Grass cut@ 1in.
clouds cut @ 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 ins.
Sun cut @ 1 1/4 ins.
Tree cut at 5 1/4 ins.
Bee cut @ 1 in.
I added stickles to the sun , honey and bee.
I used the rub-ons for the bee's flight pattern.
I really like how it turned out and with Cindy's cut file I think I am gonna make a couple more...
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

Baby Boy Poem layout

Hi all

This is a page I made for my Friend to put in her baby book.

I used the Friday sketch over at Practical Scrappers The sketch comes from Ann Katrin.

I used Debbie Mumm paper

E K Success corner punch

Cricut cart Pooh font for pooh cut @ 4ins

Baby Boy cut @ 2 ins and cuttle bug embossed them

Cricut cart A Child's Year for the frame for the poem....doodled

Stitched the long strips of paper and added a bow.

A very simple lay out

I found this beautiful poem that I thought was just perfect.

A baby boy was created by the hand of God above to give the world the sweetest touch of tenderness and love. With the softness of a whisper,God made a baby's skin and then designed two trusting eyes to put the starlight in. With giggles from a waterfall and breezes passing by, God made a baby's laughter and a tiny, sleepy sigh .God made the world a precious gift more dear and pure than gold, with little toes to play with and tiny hands to hold then brought into the sunshine a precious baby boy All wrapped up in a rainbow of wonder, hope, and joy.-unknown author
Oh and wanted to let everyone know That I feel much better today, still congested but so much better....
Thanks so much for stopping by
