Hi all,
Here's a fairly quick post today,
to show my entry for the
simon says stamp and show blog Challenge,
the theme this week is SHOW SOME POLKA DOTS.

this tag also fits the challenge over at
the stamp man challenges blog
the theme this time is # 14 DISTRESS

click the links to read all there details.

Here's my entry,
yes it's another tag
(note to self, must make more effort to make other things,
don't just reach for a tag to alter) lol.

there's quite a lot of elements to this tag,
so I'll start with the polka dot's,
the papers are Jenni Bowlin,
the background dots & the words are Wendy Vecchi's,
all other stamps are Tim Holtz,
the hearts are made from UTEE & cookie cutters,
the flower is made from lost & found paper stack & a punch,
 the photos behind Tims film strip are also from that paper stack,
the lock & keys are charms & the leaves are wooden embellishments,
the word ART is from a travel Scrabble set my sister was going to bin,
I used a Manila tag & fibers from my stash,
& the Distress Inks are
aged mahogany & brushed corduroy.

All the bit's & bobs on this tag are things I have made for other projects
that didn't quite work or didn't look quite right,

I have a box on my desk for said bits
& every so often (when it over flows) I try to make something from it,

I must say I am pleased with the way this tag turned out,
I get such a sence of acheivment from useing up all the bits(LOL)
& I find I use things that I would not have nesseseraly put together.

Hope you Like it,



Thanks for stopping by,
Back soon,
