Tips & Tricks with Cocoa Daisy

Hi and welcome to my blog today.

I have some tips and tricks to share today over on the Cocoa Daisy blog.
I dissected this LO that  I made with my October Kit.
I like to try and use stuff more that just the one way.
I get quite a satisfying feeling from doing that.

I used nearly a whole pack of the Amy Tangerine 'Oh Yes' Stickers.
They are fabric and completely lush.
I think Amy Tangerine's collections are top of my list right now. I love how fun her products are to use.
I cut these numbers out from the SC - American Crafts - Yearbook Paper and just went around roughly with a pencil so they stood out more. As the bazzill is textured, you get quite a nice effect.

I used my Amy Tangerine packaging from the alphas and turned the photo into a little pocket.
The alphas come in the main kit. They are almost transparent and come in a brown set and in the aqua that you see here. Both in the one pack. And I used this 'Today' journal stamp here. 
I seem to have found a new love for stamps again.

And there you have my cheeky two.
I played with the photo a little to give it a slightly aged look and a slight orangey tone to match the LO.

I'm feeling abit funny today. My sister is at Gatwick right now waiting for her flight to Orlando.
We are so so close. We both have a very empty feeling when the other isn't around.
Like something is missing.
I got in from the school run this morning and just went to pick up the phone to call her. Habit!! We chat every morning once the kids are at school. As we are heading out next week, we won't have a morning chat now til 1st Nov!!
I'm so excited for them though. This is their first Orlando trip. Her kids are the same age as our's and then there's little Millie too who I scrap about quite abit. She's just turned 4 and is more excited than anyone. She wants to meet all the princesses : )
I can't wait to meet up with them next week. We are meeting at Sea World. Excited!!!

Please see my Cocoa Daisy Blog Post if you want to see this LO dissected.

Thank you for stopping by today xxx
