Tag You're It Challenge

Yippee the challenge this week over at "Tag You're It" has been set by my wonderful buddy Kath who I'm sure you all know very well... and she has opted for stripes...
What a fun tag this was to make as I delved into my scrap box for all the bits & pieces that have been left over from other projects. Like so many others I've started the clearing process & am truly amazed at what can be found amidst all the goodies we have collected over the last year, so rule number 1 this year is to keep buying to a minimum until I have used up a lot of what I have... I'm sure my bank account will like that but more to the point so will my craft room.
Well I have a spare half hour now before hubby whisks me off to the shop so think I may just manage to squeeze in a bit of blog hopping which will be the first for a few days & I'm so behind with my visits now. Perhaps I'll be visiting you today or tomorrow so keep an eye out for me.
P.s. Don't forget to check on my blog candy

Happy crafting

Hi Lorraine, Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I love your tag. You co-ordinated all your bits and bobs so well!!! I love the idea of not buying anything until you have used up what you have. But then you visit someones blog and then see something and then you just have to buy it!!! LOL Pascale :)
