Travel Tag...

...those new Destinations papers are lush aren't they? I think that this is fast becoming my fave Tim paper-stack... I know, I have said that everytime there's a new one but this is really up my street because it is all about travel (ahem, quite, hence the name!) but the backs of the papers are gorgeous too... they are all patterned so they look like they have texture... loooove them!


So, I was faffing in the Room of Stash and decided to bung a quick tag together... a Challenge Hels that I was only allowed to stamp the new train stamp... nothing else (!) and all the decorations had to be from the stack *but I did allow myself a bit of Idea-ology otherwise I would have not liked the challenge setter (me) and gone off into a moody (not good, being moody with self) so I liberally sprinkled some onto the tag too* Oh and... I cheated a smidge because I had a couple of Grungepaper strap jobby things from the Hardware Alterations die kicking about on my desk, so I used them to look like fastenings for a suitcase... mmm, I think a bit of squinting needs to go on because they look nowt like that but... well, it is the thought that counts lol


Right... better get a wiggle on... I need my beauty sleep, I am away to Coningsby in Lincolnshire to Jo Channon's store, Let's Create, for a demo day of Ranger goodies and Studio 490 loveliness... if you are in the area, it would be fab to meet you! Thanks for looking... have a goodly Saturday! TTFN
