Another appointment....

Good morning you all. Hope you are all fit and well. Today I have to go to the Dentist again, but at least I have till this afternoon to enjoy my day. I think (hope)he will just be controlling if everything is okay; but when he is finished I will probably know better!

Spent a lot of time doing nice things today - like making tags, doing more pages for my journal, and starting my Calendar journal pages for October.

The tags are for Rebecca's Blog Challenge Garden and for the Dragon's Dream.. Rebecca's theme is school related, and I have chosen *the math lesson* for my tag. I have made a double tag, using paper from the *fairy Tale Stack*, which reminds me of one of my old school books. I have used different classroom elements and a little blackboard. The pencil sharpener is a button, and I have used a vintage scrap school girl, who seems to belong to another day and age.


The next tag is for the Dragon's dream, and this week she's dreaming of Nancy Sinatra's *Those boots were made for walking*. I didn't have and boots to hand, but I think if somebody gets trodden on with those high heels it should hurt just as much....


For my journal spread I made a collage using bits and bobs cut out of the newspaper and a magazine, it's fun to do something different each time.




Okay, that was it for today, thanks for visiting, have a good day, and take care!

  7. morning Valerie. Good luck at the dentist. All of your creations look bright and colourful I hope that is a reflection of your well being. Super idea to use pieces out of a magazine. The paper is usually great quality. It always seems a shame to throw old mags away.

  9. ALL of your work really appeals to me today, Valerie. I would find it very difficult to pick a favorite. "A Proper Gentleman" makes me smile. All of them are stunning. Hope by now you may be home from the dentist and settled into your house for the day, taking it easy. Thinking of you. Take care. hugs, Donna
