Tim's 12 Tags and a catch up

Hi folks!  It's been too long since I blogged, so this is going to be a bit of a mixed bag - I thought I'd better state that right up front.

First off, my version of Tim Holtz's tag for July -

I LOVED making this one.  I've been waiting for the  seaside dies to become available since CHA, and the faux sand technique is just genius.  I live beside the sea (I can see the beach from my living room window) and this looks like the real thing.  My husband had a hard time believing it wasn't.

Speaking of my husband, he's part of the reason why I've been a bit quiet of late.  He's recently got back into cosplay (look it up on wikipedia!) and for London ComicCon he wanted to go as Dr Strange (again. wikipedia is probably your friend here).  So I've been busy with the sewing machine.  Here's the scrapbook page I created.

(I also put together a slideshow if you want to see some of the fantastic work of the cosplayers who attended. )

I have to say it was very, very hot at Earl's Court and the queue was so long that it could have had its own postcode.  I only went for the preview session on Friday evening (to carry bags, mostly, but Lady Ermintrude did get herself a rather spiffing top hat and a set of goggles for when she's gadding about the Steampunk world).

For the rest of the weekend I headed for the museums (and spotted Barbara Grey of Clarity Stamps in the V&A).

Anyway, back to Tim's tags - which is where we came in - and I'm still playing catchup, because August will be here soon and I still haven't finished June's tag (which I will do, for the sake of completeness).  So I'd better crack on.

See you soon,

Crafty hugs,

Your DH's outfit looks fantastic ! I must now look up Wilkepedia as I am intrigued.
Lucky husband to have such a talented wife.

Great to hear from you Keren and see your fabulous version of Tim's current tag. MOST impressed with that Cosplay outfit too. Looks like Earls Court was ridiculously busy this year but that just shows how popular this has all become now. Jenny x
