"What's your NickName?" - PDEC Wk 31

Hello Bloggers,

It is time for another installment in the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge.  This week we are celebrating Nicknames and our theme is Baby Cakes [Baby Cakes is Bonnie's (Janis' daughter) nickname].  Create a project with cupcakes or a baby project.  I had a ton of ideas running through my mind this past week.  I have a boat-load of nicknames and any one of them could be depicted with images, but I stuck to our theme.

Here is a list of my nicknames, or at least the ones I could remember.
  1. Biendy or Bindy - my family calls me this a lot.
  2. Bear-Belinda - Mom calls me this when she is going through her list of names (i.e. Belinda, Beverly, Don, Shortie, etc.)  Beverly's name is 'Bel-Beverly'. 
  3. Deanie-Weenie - I was called this in high school and at my first job.  My middle name is Dean (after my grandmother Junie Dean) and I used this name in Jr. High and High school.  Since I am very short (5'2") the Weenie was added.  Hooter, yes that is his nickname, called me this at work all the time.
  4. "B" - When I graduated to office work instead of the factory floor I was called "B" a lot.  I guess that got that because I signed my name that way most of the time on process orders.
  5. Blin - my friend Melissa called me this.  She really is the only one.
  6. Banana - the little boy next door to us could not say Belinda.  I don't know where he got Banana.

It was fun remembering those nicknames.  Thanks Janis for a creative way to chronicle 2012.  I chose to make a quasi baby project.  When I was born one of my relatives gave me a White Bear.  He was affectionately named "Whitey."  I still have him to this day.  He has a place of honor on (not in) my hope chest at the end of my bed.  Whitey has been ripped and had 'surgery' many times.  He is in relatively good condition for being 55 years old and wagged around by active children.  He was dressed along with my dolls and played with for many years.  I was appropriate to put him on my tag chronicling my nicknames and being a 'baby' project.  Without further ado here is "Whitey's" remembrance.

Now here is the recipe for my project.
Size:  4.5" tag
Tag:  ELEGANT EDGES, pg 46, Heart2-s, cut @ 4.5" using the Oblong and Shadow features.
Bear:  GIVE A HOOT, pg 32, Bear + all layers, cut @ 3.2"; also used Shadow feature.
Letters:  POOH FONT SET, various pages, letters, cut @ 0.8" using the Marker and Marker Shadow features.
Cardstock:  The Paper Company (White, Black, Light Gray and Pink)
Patterned Cardstock:  SEI [Chicky's friends (back) Chick-a-dee Assortment pack]
Ink:  Colorbox (Charcoal Chalk Ink Cat's Eye)
Adhesives:  Scotch (ATG and Foam Tape) and EKSuccess (Zig 2 Way glue Pen Fine Tip)

To show the layers and addition of foam tape.

This was a quick and easy project.  That is usually the way when I have an idea in my head and the colors go together quickly. Can't go wrong with pink, white and gray.  Now, it is your turn to make a baby or cupcake project.  Before I forget ... we have Prizes!!!
