This CJ has been sitting on my desk for about 3 weeks now. I found the stamp tricky and to compound it blue is a colour I just never use! So I began to think of all the blue things I could. Several had already been used but rattling around my brain was this phrase "Blue Meanies". Now I didn't know where it came from so I looked on the internet and found that it was from the Beatles film "The Yellow Submarine" So this is my take on the Blue Meanies!
And this is my next Tag for UK Stampers...P for Party. I was rather hoping for P for Pants but Party it was! There have been some lovely additions so I thought I would go for a political slant as I saw these rather yummy accordian flowers whilst I was blog hopping and fancied a try! Well, let me tell you they are REALLY tricky to make as the middle keeps popping up and won't stay flat! I tried Pritt then PVA finally resorting to double-sided tape and a good whack and they actually only stayed flat once I taped them to the tag with about half a yard of tape each! So if anyone has a fail-safe technique for how to get these to work without the violence please leave me a note!!!

The next few pages......sorry rather dark photoes and a filthy cloth too! However thes I am happier with as they are really DLOs and I am soooo much happier working in DLOs cos then they "match". Must be the Virgo in me!!
These tags are making me realise that I seem to be a bit of a collage freak.......!

Sorry for the few days absence! Been another busy week and last weekend, well where did THAT go?! So I am on catch-up with my tags again....this is "W for Wings". I actually did the BG during the week but then had a glass or two of wine and couldn't see straight enough to assemble it all! But now she is done in all her glory!
And this is the next page of Sarah's book, showing her first Christmas. I spent Sunday at a class at The Glitterpot and did quite a lot more pages so it is definately all beginning to come together now!
Right off to do my next tag.....

For this page I stamped a selection of flowers from my fave Fancy Pants set onto the BG and then decoupaged a few of them to give it some dimension.
These next 2 were taken at our allotment. We used to go there most weekends and Sarah couldn't wait to be mobile and clamber everywhere!
I made the photo corners from a sissix die...unfortunately I think I should have trimmed the pop dots a bit smaller!!

So I have started! In the end I just jumped right in and chose three main colours (with the help of the fabulous Gilly at The Glitterpot!) that complemented the muted photoes. I chose two Penny Lane double sided papers that "went" too and have gone with simple and understated! And here are the first two LOs. I usually scrap in DLOs that match, so to do a front and a back of a page the same but the facing page different, is quite scary for me! The pages are 10x10 and I plan to make a mountboard cover and bind it all with the BIA. Now I am underway it is flowing more...I am never very good at visualising my projects and they seem to evolve along their own routes! But so far so good!
