Teddybo Challenge 15 - Alter Something !!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

 Oh my, my week off has just flown in !!! Back on Saturday ;0( .  It has been great to craft more ! I could craft everyday. I was banned last night by my fella  though lol,  I was a complete rogue and did some colouring in he he he. We watched Avatar was so great loved it !. My daughter got her exam results this morning. Scary time ! she did so well but was disappointed in one which may determine her entry to university next year . So she has a back up plan that if she does not get into Glasgow she will go to Dundee. We would love to move further North so we said we would move there if it happens !!. Now enough of my woes and onto my passion !!! My daughter bought an A5 Filofax so she can be more organised this coming school year so I thought I would alter the index cards for her !. Her favourite colour is purple . She picked Teddybea_065.  His name is " Jolly the G_____Jiraffe " lol. She loves them as she is so tall and that was her nickname at school lol. She has giraffes everywhere in her room !!! So here he is .....

How cute  is he !! Great fun to colour ! I used a tiny bit of twine on his tail lol ! and a touch of orange sugar glitter on his funky hair !!  I suppose this is like a scrap booking project really. She picked a vintage style papers and some old maps !! I could not put too many embellishments on there so it would close properly. That was really hard for me lol ! I usually have flowers everywhere !

I have added chipboard , lace and die cuts .
When I ordered this image Teddybo sent me a wee present another Giraffe image to be released next week ! Don't you just love surprises ! This image is soooooooooooo cute !!

It's Teddybo & Jolly what do you think they are peeking at ? lol . This time I added a little polar white flowesoft to her pom poms to try it out as ordered it for Christmas cards. So I made another file page for her , just had too !!

I was watching create and craft TV this morning and they put some glue on a stem/wire and then coated the stem in flowersoft so I had a go great idea !! I also made the cute wee tag and added a gorgeous tree charm ! I figure these will motivate her to study hard so she can become a physicist and travel the world and maybe see a real Giraffe one day !!
