Josh Pretending to be Harry

Well, with the kids home and less running around to do and lots to finish before Christmas, I took sometime to complete a page for Josh. This year, he became obsessed with Harry Potter. And for a while (about three months in the middle of the year), he took, to dressing like Harry and taking his wand everywhere. This photo was taken at our nephew Jack's 1st birthday in August.

I started off with a piece of vanillia, coffee and Essential card. Spritzed the vanilla with Gold Glow smooch spritz and some pumice stone refill in a mini mister. Stamping done in Vintage photo and Barn Door Distress Inks. Chipboard covered with Frayed Burlap and Walnut stain Distress inks. Buttons are from the earth tone set.

What was supposed to be a quick Secret Santa Gift....

Oh boy, did this take way longer than expected. Hubby came home last night from work and asked me to "whip up a quick sliding card for a time out bar". I laughed at him. At 8pm he asked when I was going to start as he needed it for this morning. So after some playing with measurements and designs 3.5 hours later, this was the finished product. Not quite what I would have done. However, hubby kept giving me details as I was in creative mode and things had to keep changing. Lots of fun to make (and lots of tape later), this was the final product.

Massive apologies for being away for so long. Life has taken some interesting turns in the last month. All is getting there slowly. Unfortunately I am not sure I will not have a lot of time for this blog over the next two or three weeks. I will get back asap, after New Years, In the meantime, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a very safe, happy, and healthy New Year. I am looking forward to getting back in to full time crafting, so hopefully I will have lots of new and fun things to show you in the coming year.
