I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Live Gently

Hello all!  I'm over at A Vintage Journey today, stopping at Destination Inspiration.  If you have a moment, do hop over and take a look at what I created with the contents of this month's travel bags.  I'm afraid it's another tag full of my favourite colours and things - when I do have some crafting time, I can't resist them.  But even limited crafting time is good for the soul and so too, I think, is this tag.   I hope you like it.


Thanks so much for stopping by and for hopping too.  For those who are curious, I did in the end pack a small(ish) travelling craft kit to bring with me to Columbus, Ohio, so there may even be a few more new things to share in the coming months.  We'll see how time pans out.  I hope to be a better blog visitor too, but we all know about good intentions and where that path leads...  Happy Crafting all!

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

If you don't mind hopping to see the full project...
I'd like to enter this in Time to Take Flight over at Stamps and Stencils
And it's also perfect for the Resist Stamping theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Wonderful tag Alison and the crackle stamp seems like a must have for me as I am useless with crackle stuff.

Nice thought with this quote as well.

Hope you enjoying life and taking lots of pics.

Love Chrissie xx

Hi Alison, many thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving such a lovely comment :). I love your tag and the background is amazing, it really does look like stained glass. I'm pleased that you filled it with your favourite colours and things because that's exactly how it should be. The sentiment is beautiful too.

A beautify tag Alison, the background does look like stained glass, gorgeous shading of the colours, which go so well with your embellishments.

Spent some wonderful time over at AVJ. Love that crackle stencil with clear embossing powder. Amazing background for that sweet vintage bird. Can't believe how much I've missed since school started. Sigh. -- ME
