Monkeying around

I have been trying to use my time more wisely and scrap a little each day. So far I have about 4 WIPS just about ready to upload with several other projects swirling around in my head.

In the meantime my husband's job has a client in need who is expecting so everyone there has banded together to try to do something special for her. My husband asked if we could contribute a diaper cake and of course I was very happy to do it. Since I have never done a tricycle before I decided to give it a shot and I love the results. Here is a front view of the bike. I even added the little key rattle to start the engine, lol. Not pictured is the tag I made to list the "ingredients" for the recipient.

Here is a view from the back. I used a bib for the fender and then I decided to add a license plate. I googled PA license plates and found this style (that we no longer use). That says, "You've got a friend in Pennsylvania". I thought that was very fitting for the occasion so I just added the company's name for an added sentiment.

But one of the most exciting things for me was that I finally got to(thought to) finally use my Around the block tagger. I know this is not the best picture but that is how I attached the license plate to the bib.

I have to confess that I have had this tool tucked away in a drawer for years. I thought it was such a great idea when it came out but once I had it I didn't find much use for it so away it went to the land of the least used tools like the fastenater and eyelet setter. In my quest to become better organized I have recently cleaned out my drawers and when I ran across the tagger I was determined to use it for something and I am glad I did since the only other way I could have probably attached the license plate would be with pins and it would not look as neat. My only problem now is that the tool is pretty much obsolete so finding the tags for it is going to be challenging, but hey, at least something old is new again.
