Love My Boy - lo and an award

This photo of my eldest was taken when he was 16 months.

The big circle was made with a big doily as a mask.

I've made this orange flower out of fabric (dispensable table cloth), after I saw a similar flower over Crafty Fairy's blog. She explained that she used a lot of glue to stiff the fabric, and then added stickles. So that is how I made mine. Isn't it gorgeous?
The pale green ribbon was made of bandage that I painted with acrylic paint, something I learned from another Israeli talented crafter - Yafgil.
I added leaves I made out of used dryer sheet, inked it with distress ink and added stickles.

I'm entering this lo to the following challenges:
something old, something new - #42 crafty angels (mine: the photos are about 7 years old, the bandage ribbon & the fabric flower are new)
ribbons & flowers - #82 the crafty pad
2 colors - #2 the stamp man
make your own flowers - #5 craftalicious

And the award:

I got this award from the Crafty Girl, Barb. I was so surprised and thrilled when I saw it! Barb is such a talented crafter. Her lo's are so cheerful, and full of lovely details, a real eye candy! I just love to read here posts. Thank you so much, Barb!

Now, here is what you should do with the award:
1. Thank the person who gave it to  you.
2. tell 7 things about yourself.
3. pass the award to 5 bloggers whom you think are fantastic.

So here are 7 things about myself:
1. I was born nearby the sea but now I live far from it.
2. I was never ever crafty kind of girl, till a year ago...
3. I have 2 sisters and one brother.
4. I'm the youngest (okay, I cheated here a little to gain another line... LOL)
5. I have two wonderful, handsome boys!
6. I had two dogs living with me, till I gave birth to my eldest.
7. I'm a full time working woman.

And the 5 bloggers I'm passing this award are:
2. Rose M.

Thanks for stopping by!

מצאתי את התמונות הללו של בני הבכור באיזה אלבום כיסים ישן. אלו תמונות מהזמן שהוא היה בן 16 חודש בערך (איך שהזמן טס, הוא נראה פה כל כך תינוק, ובסה"כ חלפו רק 7 שנים...)
את הפרח הכתום הכנתי מעיגולים של מפת אלבד. כן, זאת שלוקחים תמיד לפיקניקים או למסיבות ואחרי שמשתמשים - זורקים לפח. אז זהו, שלא חייבים לזרוק לפח... ראיתי אצל פית מרציפן את פרח הבד הזה והוא שבה את ליבי. אז ניסיתי לשחק עם הבד לפי התיאור שלה (דבק, סטיקלס) וזה מה שיצא. הפיה פשוט קוסמת - הבד באמת נהיה קשה וקל לשחק איתו בעיצוב.
את ה'סרט' שמתחת הכנתי מתחבושת, כפי שלמדתי מיפית. פרחי התחבושת שלה הם אחד הרעיונות הכי יצירתיים שנתקלתי בהם.
הוספתי עלים מדף משומש של מייבש כביסה שגם הוא עבר טיפול מסיבי של סטיקלס ו'לכלוך' בדיו דיסטרס.
האותיות הכתומות הקטנות הן מ'מקס סטור' והאותיות הירוקות הגדולות הן מביג דיל.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!
