A Sticky Exclusive and Giveaway!

Hello friends
Bit of a long blog post today - hope you don't mind! Pop that kettle on...!
Some pictures of our day in London for Elliott's birthday yesterday.
Setting off on the train...
Convent Garden, look it was sunny! Plenty of people watching the street performers.
 Impressive display of Olympic banner/flags.
 We found the theatre but then...
 the rain ...lots of it - thunder, lightening ..
So we took refuge and found 'Scoop' - seriously delicious ice cream!
Back at the theatre, we attended performance number... 
It was really good.   I highly recommend it.
On our way home...a rather damp but still smiling Elliott!
Despite the weather we had a brilliant day.
I do treasure these occasional days out with my boys.

Back to craft....
Great excitement in the house today!! 
I have an exclusive to bring to you from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ 
it is................. E-Z Dots® Permanent 
This fantastic adhesive is not hitting the UK until November 
but I have a small amount of stock to sell now!!
You receive 15 metres - it dispenses as small dots which allows the adhesive to be applied in curves and on the back of tiny die cuts and embellishments.
It works on vinyl, acrylics, ribbon, foil, glitter and more.

Recently I put together this project using just this one adhesive.
Please click on my Scrapbook Adhesives tab on the sidebar or click here to view
and also other amazing sticky products available.  
Also, I will be giving away an E-Z Dots Permanent :)))
Just leave me a comment and Bella will pick out a winner on Monday -
she's been lazing around far too much lately, I think she needs a job! 
Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, it looks like Elliott enjoyed his day out with his mum for his birthday. Such precious moments to enjoy when they are young because soon they want to be out with friends rather than mum. The ice cream looks delicious sadly the rain came to spoil the day.

Hi Christine, glad Elliott had a lovely birthday...we went to see the Mousetrap last year, when we had a weekend in London to really go an see Les Mis..we enjoyed it, it's just one of those plays you have to 'tick' off! Happy Sunday, Carole Z X

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Morning Christine, What beautiful pictures, so glad that you both enjoyed your day trip together, and I bet the Theatre was fantastic too. What a lovely birthday prezzie for Elliott, that you could enjoy too ha ha !! Shame about the rain. The ice cream looks yummy, we are off to a fund raising event at Church this afternoon, and it's Ice Cream Sunday, we have it every year, this year we are fund raising for a new heating system, we haven't had any heating for 2 years, the winters we are dressed for the 'arctic' ha ha. Hope this rain stops for this afternoon ha ha.
The box is beautiful and those felt flowers are gorgeous.
Have a lovely Sunday. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Maggie J said...

Great to hear about your lovely day with Elliott, shame about the weather but that's always the risk here isn't it, however the ice cream looks delicious. The new adhesive sounds good, adhesive is the thing it is most difficult to get right I think so I am always ready to try something new.

Elizabeth said...

It would seem that a great day out was had by all. Fantastic. Was the chocolate icream yours Christine? Yum yum. Great news about the adhesive rolls too will have a look. You do spoil us Christine with all your help and knowledge.
Have a great long weekend.
Elizabeth x

Hello Christine, sounds like you both had a fab day for your son's birthday despite the rain. The sticky dot runner sounds great & would be perfect for sticking down envelopes that I am turning into gift bags. mmmm wonder where I got that idea from!!!

Oh bless - doesn't Elliott have a lovely smile Christine? You both sound as if you had a really good time. The weather could have been nicer for you but I don't think it looks as if either of you were bothered!!! As for that ice-cream - coooo that looks good!!

Happy Birthday Elliott. It looks like you all had a wonderful even with the rain. I think your ice cream looked wonderful and what fun way to celebrate with a great showing of Deathtrap. I first saw the movie of it back in 1983 and it has been one of all time faves of Agitha Christies. I too love all the pictures you took on your wonderful day out. I love days like that with my two children. There is just nothing better. lol... Thanks for the chance to win. Hugs, Lisa G
