- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

TH#4 - April Tag
Ripped the first page out of the dictionary I bought at our Scout Jumble Sale for such purposes as this. Considering the Easter season I went to the "e" section and there was "egg" right at the top, how could I resist?
Embossed frame made from a small freebie Christmas Tree folder where I just put the edges of the tag in and had to emboss 6 times to get the edge pattern.
Bird - Marianne die (sans it own branch)
Branch - Quickutz die (2 parts)
Leaves - from Tim's Regal Crest die
Plaque - Tim's book plate from Tag die
Crown - metal embellishment from "The Works" here in the UK. Had to cut the brad ring off the top - now that was fun!
On reflection I really ought to have made the bird BLACK in honour of the Blackbird which has taken up residence in my garden and promptly starts singing his little heart out around 5am and continues 'till 9am and then returns in the evening. I think the novelty has worn off now!!! BJ
