Wednesday again, here is my desk today. Rather tidy dont you think? LOL, wonder how long this will last? Hopefully not long.

Had to shut my journal so i could do some cards i had promised, was hard to close it but had too or else would never have got anything else done, lol.

The 2 cards on my desk were posted yesterday if you would like to see better pics of them.

My little box of tags is rather full this week as i had an afternoon on making tags. Got my dylusions sprays out and spent the afternoon getting messy, whoop whoop. Did loads so it should keep me busy for awhile.

I am onto my second set of pages for my tag book, the first ones were posted last week if you would like to take a look.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a great WOYWW.

Tag Journal 1

I have no idea why this photo has come out this way round !!! Blogger doing its own thing i guess.
Anyhoooo for those who commented on my WOYWW this week, here is the finished page in my new tag journal. When i say finished i doubt it as these pages never seem finished, lol.

This tag was created for a couple of challenges a few weeks ago and how i created it is on my blog so i won't go into that here. The pages was made around the tags theme. All stamps used are from Dylusions range, I am sooo addicted to these, hard not to be.

The elements are all coloured with pro/flexmarkers.

Yesterday I decided to have a few moments with my Dylusions sprays and get a bit messy. Well those few moments turned into a bit longer and a whole lot messier than was anticipated but boy was it fun. Here are the fruits of my labour.

Should keep me going for a little while, if it doesn't I will just have to do some more won't I? Oh dear, lol.

Here is the 1st one of the above tags, I am sure it will find its way into the new journal book.

The next tag page is underway.

Thanks for stopping by to look. Have a great day. xxxx
