Try It Tuesday~the shoe is done!


Hi everyone~ I thought I would go ahead and get the shoe done, since it has been on my mind.  All of these elements remind me of my sweet grandpa {pepo}.  The cigar box{Jenni Bowlin}, the shoe, the coffee emblem{he loved Folgers Coffee} and liked getting it on sale, so I thought I would combine them and make a rememberance to him~


The inside of the little shoe is reinforced with heavy cardboard to give me a flat surface.  I used a wine cork and covered it with JBS/Magpie paper. I lined the inside of the box and inked the edges.  I used Helmar Acid Free and Helmar 450 Quick Dry as my adhesive.   The pin is by Tim Holtz and holds the photo perfectly!


I love the new Jenni Bowlin tags and they were perfect for this!  I didn't photograph it~but it will all fit in the box and fold up perefct for storage.  Have a great Tuesday and I will see ya soon!
