A couple of tags well worth sharing....




The flower, made with the Sizzix die from Tim Holtz...both sizes, stacked on top of each other, finished with Glimmer mist and Prima flower and pearls.

NOTE- Be careful if you want to do this yourself, as the tissue is very fine. Don't make it too wet with glue and mist or it will not be able to hold it's own.

I just love the crackle paint from Ranger, finished with stickles. Have to have some bling somewhere!.....or life as we know it could be so dull! We can't have that now can we?
The stamp used here is from Prima Marketing, colored with Glimmer mist.
Butterfly wings and dress form are from TWIDDLY BITZ
Tissue paper from, COLLECTIONS

Can't, not have a 3d photo to show you!

More close ups for you.

"The nameless one."

This tag has no name....thus, the name I shall give it now will be ,
"The nameless one."

I love this butterfly. I got such a buzz with making the A Team, love it when a plan comes together...showing my age with this one!
It is worth doing a tut. on the planning........
Sorry the photo does not show the bottom of the dress form well. 
Wholes made with the crop-a-dile then,beads attached to jump rings- 7 gypsies-

But what I will share with you at this point, is The butterfly is cut out from one of the 'COLLECTIONS' papers you can purchase. The back ground is stamped with one of the Prima Marketing stamps released last of their many to die for products. Painted of course by hand with Glimmer Mist,

Close ups of the butterfly.....and the dress form, Twiddly Bitz that is covered with the tissue paper.

 Mallissa Frances glass glitter- Pink and Green.

Just wanted to show off with a few large close ups.hahahahaha....yes you see the butterfly is finished with those wonderful glass chips.

I hope you enjoyed wondering through my post today/night.....and yes I have good news for you.
So have a scrappy one, love and scrappy hugs, Susan

For those that are interested - The news to date.
I have this morning...the small hours...returned from two glorious relaxed non stress weeks from the France....I slept for the first two days! and, yes I did manage to get a tan ,and no, I did not Internet, so I could not post here,,that was a killer, as I had the time! and yes had time to kill.....laying around , reading, (TWO BOOKS and into the THIRD!) eating cheese and drinking wine...a little any way......Met a great couple while there and booked for next year for three weeks...wait till you see the photo's of the location for next will be eating your hearts out for sure!
(some one commented today that I was not that brown........really!....... with the Irish blood in me! I am so glad I have a slight tint....with a little help from the Sun Bed I shall keep it in tact for Australia......YES IT IS TRUE!!!!!!!
A special note.....Sorry for all those that booked a WS at Scrap-delight with me....but I have not seen family and friends for at least 12 years...I could not pass up this gift my DH offered to me on a silver platter.......and yes I will be returning, I have booked a RETURN TICKET!....So I will make it up to you.....promise!
and yes again...
my other sister in New Zealand, Michelle, talked me into giving up three weeks in Australia to spend it with her and dear girlfriends in the 
But truly,.... this is a once in a life time thing! A two edged sword....being able to plan my time in as I want, not having to take Frans (DH)into account while away, as..... FRANS WILL NOT be traveling with me.....thats, a real down, down side. The up side is...I can scrap till I drop!
But absence makes the heart grow fonder.....
we will leave it at that....and...... but thankfully,we have skype and e-mail.....and who knows.....he might get a crazy idea to pick me up and travel home with me......won't hold my breath though...he's not a good back seat driver.
He is a retired KLM BVK...ops.... the cats out of the bag now.
I have booked and I'm flying out of Holland Friday 3 pm. 12 hour over stop at Hong Kong, so may be I'll spend a couple of hours looking around. Then I shall be landing on Australian soil 8 am Sunday.

Over there is Father's Day, so Cheere and boys will be picking me up, having coffee may be at Macies or whatever.

I shall hopefully keep you updated.

Bye Bye - time to fly!
