Tuesday Today!

And of course it's Tuesday Taggers day but first I want to share a little something

Here comes the Bride

Helped along the way by Dad

The proud husband!

 Followed by their bridesmaids

Posing for the camera

And off to the reception!

A truly wonderful day in the company of truly wonderful people and as Fizz and Liam start a new page in the story of their lives it's time for me to get on with today and post the Tuesday Taggers challenge, for which the theme is


The DT have done us proud again by producing some of the most imaginative projects from artwork inspired by a book to tag books.

I've gone for an altered book, a journal in fact, made a while ago for my oldest son but I loved making it so much I thought I'd show and tell this one!

A cheapy book from poundland which I covered with tissue and PVA then painted and grunged with Acrylic paint. After stamping with Paper Artsy and a couple of other stamps I punched a hole and attached the tags with string and nearly couldn't give it away.

After making 6 bridesmaid dresses, 6 fascinators, 1 wedding dress, 3 waistecoats, 2 wedding rings, curry for 60 and marrying my son off in such a spectacular way, I'm ready for a little r&r at my craft desk. Hope you are too!
