Tag Time

Just back from the UK where we have been celebrating Alex’s birthday.  He has just turned 17, learning to drive and growing up way too fast.

Had lots of playtime whilst away and even managed to get to a class at the Craft Barn with Helen Chilton.  We made a Marquee Sign with lights but stupid here left it at Clare’s house.  You can see Helen’s make here but I used different stamps and colours on mine.

Also had time for some art journaling with Clare but had to buy a new A5 book because I left mine at home … now I have two on the go.  Note to myself when visiting Dot must remember to take it with me!!!!

It’s been so long since I have made a tag and today was just perfect to start one.  Beautiful sunny weather and lots of crafting time.

Bought stamps and paints at the workshop … Sandy had her shop there.  Below you can see I have used one of the new PaperArtsy stamps on my tag with some of the new paints.

The ‘Dream On’ sentiment came from the bottom of a stamp from Finnabair.

The eye stamp is so old that my poor little brain can’t remember where it came from.


Sorry for not visiting anyone whilst away but tomorrow is catch up time to see all that I have been missing.  See you soon.

    It sounds like you’ve had a great time Shirl, even managing to get a craft class in too, that’s what I like to hear. I don’t have a notebook but it sounds like a good idea, so I need to get onto that. I love your tag, great stamping and background and I really like the touch of red. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

    As Sandra said, sounds like you have a good trip over here and yes they do grow up far too quickly and you wonder where the time has gone.

    Super tag, looks like it was fun to make.
