Journal Page and Tag

Hello Everyone who calls in and thank you for your visit and for the good wishes for my MIL. She is home now so needs lots of help at the moment. Fortunately the weather has been kind to us so the walk to her flat along the seafront has been a lovely one. Vic's sister is here from London as as well so all hands to the pump.

At Art Journal Journal the theme 'poetry in motion' was chosen by dear Jo. You don't have to use a poem to enter a quote or saying or part of any of them will be fine.

I used one of my chalked backgrounds and added bits and bobs that were in my scrap box for this one. I had printed out lots of the saying to make tea bag holders last year.

Go Tag Thursday has the theme Balloons this week-any balloons so Sandie says.

I went digital this time and found a wallpaper advert to make the background and the main image

 I thought you might like to see our newly painted garden shed.

The photograph was taken through a window so has my reflection on it.
 The poor old shed was well past its best but a friend was taking down his fence and told Vic to take as much of the wood as he liked, so he did and mended our shed then painted it beach hut style. It brightens up a dull corner now.

Hope you will join in our Tag Tuesday challenge with the theme Use your Scraps as there is still until next Monday evening for that.

Try it on Tuesday has just started a new challenge and it has lots of possibilties so do pop there to find out more. The theme this time is Is My Garden.

Have a
 great day

Love Chrissie xx

  9. Hi Chrissie, fabulous journal page, I love Tea, so it sure appeals to me :) The digital tag is very beautiful and your shed, wow it's fun and vibrant ! Take care, Shirleyxx

  10. First of all Chrissie I love your brightly painted garden shed. It will be so cheerful on our duller days.
    The journal page is wonderful reminds me of a rather posh cafe and ladies who have afternoon tea together, and of course I love the tea bag quote.

  11. Your page is absolutely beautiful and I love the quote! Fab balloon tag and your garden shed is soooo cool - brilliant new paint job! xxx

  12. I forgot to say that I am glad your MIL is home! xxx

  13. Glad yo hear Vic's mom is home. It must take up some of your time to help. But I do love your tea page. I am all about a cup of tea. And I like your newly painted shed. It is very artistic and fun to look at. Hugs-erika

  14. OH golly! That AJJ page would even fit nicely for T, too. It's a real beauty with the butterflies and quote from the tea bag.

    Your tag is lovely, too. I like the digital entry because it is very different from the journal page.

    Your new beach hut garden shed is simply fabulous. It looks like the quintessential British beach hut, something we don't have here in the states, but also something I truly LOVE. You and Vic did a great job.

    I hope your MIL is better by now.

  15. Your page is very pretty and the tag is gorgeous! The shed, wow!!!

  16. Delightful page - a summer garden tea party on paper! And the balloon tag is great (reminds me I need to rebook my cancelled balloon flight...) but it's that fabulous shed which steals the show here - just love it!
