Feeling A Bit Shabby

I can't believe it's week 4 of Linda's (at Studio L3)  CoC Challenges already AND I'm still hanging in there. I usually manage to do a couple of weeks then real life kicks in and I go awol from my 'cutting and sticking' for a few months lol.
Sooo Linda's got us all opening our books to page 49 - I would tell you more but she would have to kill me... I guess I can tell you that this week is 'shabby chic' AND I can show you a picture of my recipe 'cos I've learned how to add another pici to Blogger. Well yeah I hear you all mutter.. it's simple - well not to me :o). Took me hours last Sunday messing about, and all I had to do was update my Blogger ....Thingy!
So we have paint, stamps water,the cat! and my bestest book all on the same table,.but I was very careful lucky and no book or animal was harmed in the making of this tag. A stamp did have to be unwrapped and now it's dirty but I'm ok about it :o) Oh yeah I had to cut into my grungepaper too..
I am so enjoying these challenges I don't know why they call Tim a genius, everything he does is really simple - just joking honestly, put down your pokey tools you angry mob lol. But seriously if you follow this book you will get brilliant results - I know 'cos I've seen all your blogs!
Thanks very much for looking and see you next week x

  3. Sure, you are cracking me up! You're a brave woman, unwrapping that stamp and cutting into that grungeboard, but look how beautifully it all turned out! PERFECT use of that collage image, and you ACED the Shabby Chic look.

    I'm so happy you're sticking it out. They say after 28 days, something becomes a habit, so seeing as how this is the end of the 4th week, I think you're in for the long haul! I sure hope so, anyway! ♥

    Hugs,
    Linda
