my little helper

This month, for Handmade by Suzanne, I will be working with Crate Paper - Story Teller collection ☺  What a joy to create with - it's colourful and has lots of fun patterns, tags, buttons and little pegs.
Here is my first LO using my DT kit:
 Some pictures of my little man helping me doing some baking ☺All of the products used here are from the Story Teller collection (except for the stamps) Here are some close-up's:
 ... I just love tags - in this collection there is a whole 12x12 page of tags which you can cut out.  Once again, I've used the Tim Holtz mini rosette die and added in a sticker to the centre - I've also cut out some little flags to add at the bottom of the rosette ...
 ... sticker letters outlined in chocolate pen and cute wooden pegs perfect for the tags - all from this collection ...
... another rosette topped with a wooden button from the button pack ... also some more stickers ...

For the rest, I've added in some background stamping for texture and interest - some of the word stamps are from Prima and the texture stamps from Kasiercraft.

School holidays is upon us now - so nice to have it relaxed and 'out' of routine ☺  I still hope to fit in some scrap booking - my boys have already attacked my craft room and messed it all up - must be my turn now.
Thanks for coming by and happy crafting ☺
