OTP Pen Pot for Mothers Day

Well the mojo has come back, then gone and come back again and I have no idea where it is at the moment. Mojos are a bit like kids really ah? One minute they are there full of energy, being nice and then in a split second GONE back to being little horrors who are here to torment us and increase our stress to near heart attack levels!

In between the comings and goings of the mojo I finally managed to finish an OTP project. Now before I go on, my views of mothers day is not to spend a ridicious amount of money on them, whilst we appreciate them I am sure they would also appreciate us not going into world crisis debt to buy them presents just because society tells us to. Mothers Day to me is the Angels making me something from the heart and this is what I have created for my mother (crap - mum if you are reading this do not go any further and GET BACK TO WORK!)

Here is a family pen pot for her desk at work that I have finally completed.

Everything used is available from my2angels, except the pot and couple bits of paper and paint.

I am loving our new rhinestone strips which I used underneath the photo of me and the angels. The little house I made on my brothers page is our silver rhinestone squares and for the roof is the buzz and bloom chipboard frills

And I can't forget my tree with our cute owl charm sitting on a flower which is from our 200 bulk flower pack. Underneath the tree is our little mushroom charm.

Someone said to me the other day that charms aren't your usual scrapbooking item, but I find they just give that little finishing touch. I have used 6 of them on this pen pot! We have over 75 charms at my2angels, some are quite unique ("quite unique" I sound like a toffee nose twit!!!) but they are unique.

The new little eye pins we now have in stock are coming in handy for attaching the charms. I have been putting our beads on the top and a little dimensional magic to hold them in place. The beads are sold in strands for easy storage cause you don't want to drop the container TRUST ME you will be finding the damm things for weeks afterwards!!!

Now that the Angels have gone off to the beach (god knows why, it isn't THAT hot here on the Gold Coast)but they are out of my hair which is a GOOD thing especially after 9 days of school holiday., I am going to get back to a new born baby card and a layout which I started in the early hours of this morning.

Roll on Tuesday, back to school, yeah ha
