2013 Daddy/Daughter Dance By Momto3infinity

Happy Monday everyone,

I put this LO together last week, but hadn't yet put it into my 2013 Scrapbook. Every time I walked past the LO, I cringed at the placement of the ruby slippers, they weren't the right scale to have by DD2's head and it looked like she was getting stepped on :(. So, this afternoon I decided to remove them and put them down by the the lower right hand corner of the photo, between the two red flowers. Luv the LO much better now.

Anyhow, I am now left with a tiny pop dot mark in the photo. Does anyone know how to get rid of adhesive residue on a photo? I have Undue Remover, but am too afraid to use that on the picture itself. Any suggestions? Thanks Ladies. Keep a smile M.

test it on another picture that you don't care about first?????

worse comes to worst, reprint the photo if you can and put it right over top???

I've used UnDu on my photos with no problem. Like Holly suggested, I'd use it on another photo you don't care about and show yourself that nothing bad will happen to the photo.

Undu should work just fine. Maybe try it on a cotton swab to only touch a small place.

You can try an adhesive eraser. I would just dab it on the sticky part and lift, do NOT rub.

Thank you Ladies,

With a light touch, a cotton swab, and Goo Gone Sticker Lifter, the remaining adhesive came off the picture. There is no apparent damage to the photo - YAY!

Yeah. I've got mil's old, nasty, magnetic, sticky sheet albums and have been working hard to get some of those pictures out. Some of them I've pretty much saturated with it, and they dry just perfect.

Believe it or not I use a big pink eraser-rub very gently but it has worked for me!

I have an adhesive eraser (see below) and it works fantastic!
It is rubber, like an eraser, but gently scrubs the residue off without damaging the paper....
I LOVE it!

Just wanted to say thanks for the heads up on this little tool. It is awesome, I never knew it existed before and I find myself pulling out all my old LO's that I used the Cricut on to take off any extra glue It works like a charm. Thanks Cindy
