Yep, it’s the last time someone in our house will lose their first tooth. Adam lost his on Friday. He was quite distraught when it loosened considerably Thursday evening – freaked out when it bled a little. Then Friday morning at breakfast it just fell out. He walked over and handed it to me and said – “look what fell out on my tongue!” Here’s the little dude with his gap-y smile….
He’s quite proud of the fact that he was the youngest of his brothers to lose his first tooth. It’s nice to do something *first* when you are the youngest! Anyway, I had him pick out some papers so he could have his tooth tin all ready for the tooth fairy. Adam went with the sock monkey papers from Daisy D’s – here’s how it turned out!
supplies: What’s In Your Tin? Set 1 byMelanie Muenchinger for Gina K Designs; Daisy D’s sock monkey papers; palette noir black ink; Cricut Expressions; prism papers;Mono Multi; Terrifically Tacky Tape – 1/8 and 1/4; and “altoid” tin.
So I used my Cricut to get the letters for Adam’s name – mostly because he loves the color red and I didn’t have rub-ons or anything in that color. And now that I am using the Cricut more – I love it! Alex was up late the night we made this and we had a great time fiddling around with stuff. I am totally picking up the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge – I did a bag off the cartridge that came with it – totally cute! I and really liking the idea of being able to cut a box or bag in whatever size I want – how cool, huh?
Here’s what Alex and I made – he’s definitely the most athletically inclined so he wanted the “Award” to be for exercising…..And yes, he’s wearing a Chinese outfit I got him when I went last year. He loves that outfit – but it’s getting a bit small so he is hoping that Aunt Kimberly will bring him a larger one when she visits the US this summer! (hint hint, Aunt Kimberly!)
