Tiddly ABC's

Good Morning Tiddly friends. Don't forget to check out the Tiddly Ink's DT's today. I've said it before, these ladies are awesome.

Get ready for today's Tiddly Tuesday Challenge - Reading Fun! Create a reading inspired craft! To me, this meant create a craft that helps inspire someone to read.

I've made a lot of crafts for my DD lately - today was time for my DS to get some mommy crafting attention, plus Crazy 4 Crafts is having a Male inspired challenge C4C102 too. Buddy is starting Junior Kindergarten next week. This year they will work on learning the alphabet, phonics and early beginner reading. Since my little guy is a BIG eater, I thought these alphabet pretzels would be a fun way to SNACK and LEARN.

I cropped Tiddly Inks - Carpenter Joe into a circle frame so that he would fit better on this SU Top Note die packaging. Since he is a carpenter, why not BUILD some WORDS with our alphabet pretzels.

There are also new images available today at the Tiddly Inks store. Two new fabulous Minnie's and she is the cutest! I chose Minnie's Gift - my DD had a birthday party to attend so this Minnie was just right.

And thanks to Card Patterns for inspiring the layout with their Sketch Challenge #130.

Thanks for stopping by, have a Tiddly-tastic day!
