Temptation and a Heritage LO


Look what the postman brought me on Monday!
My cyber buddy Carole sent me this gorgeous tag made using her new die - I will not give in to temptation,I will not give in to temptation....
Last time Carole got a new die a few of use just had to buy it too!
Thank you Carole - Max and I will treasure it. Thanks for making us smile.




This is the LO I made at A Maze of Memories on Saturday -- finally managed to do the title.
White smooth cardstock edged  with distress ink (faded denim I think); patterned papers are 7 Gypsies "Venice"; flower made with card soaked in watery distress ink, then crumpled and dried using a heat gun;journalling on cream card hidden under an acetate tag (Sizzix die)coloured with alcohol inks. We made paper beads to give a textured border under the flocked paper but I seem to have cut them off in the photo!
Title from cream card cut using the Sizzix "Man Oh Man" alpha and coloured with distress ink (broken china).
The photos are of OH's christening - unfortunately that  is all we know.

I did a quick LO today for the Birthday Bash on Let's Capture These Sketches.
Purple Bazzill with My Mind's Eye "Penny Lane " paper; buttons,ribbon and brads from stash;K&CO butterflies; Doodlebug alpha.
Photos are from our Florida trip in 1998.

I didn't do any book sorting today - Sainsbury's delivered my groceries and by the time I'd put them all away and done some necessary h*******k it was too late to start (well, I thought it was) - so I did some crafting instead.

I'm so glad that you (and Max) love your tag - you know why I made it for you xxx LOL at you calling me your "cyber buddy" reminds me of the cyber men in Dr Who (and I look nothing like the cyber men I hasten to add!!!)

Gorgeous layouts - much more fun to craft than sorting books!
