TIO #114 - The Secret Garden

Well, we did not have very many entries to the Angels and Demons challenge, but those of you who DID join in were totally inspired!!! Thanks guys. We really do try, here at TIO, to make you think about your projects in a different way. You can do straightforward, or you can challenge yourself to think beyond the obvious. Long may that continue!!

This is the last in the series of book titles, and it's chosen by me - the boss!! tee hee... so here we go with our new challenge for the next fortnight and it is "The Secret Garden",  by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The DragonsDreamTeam has excelled itself again and given us many interpretations... mine is to be found at the bottom of the post, as always, and I DO have a ickle twist!!

So there we are, all packed up for another fortnight. I think there are some stunners here, and our new DragonsDreamTeamies have done us, and themselves proud, don't you agree??? I hope you will all support them and us, and join in with last challenge in this round... then we are changing type and pace and doing something completely different!!

Until then, have a great couple of weeks, and don't forget to use at least one real stamp there somewhere...  Oh, and to see the twist, you will have to visit my DragonsWeb blog... one or two of my teamies have secrets too, so hop over and check them out - but most of all ENJOY!!
Love and Light

DT Announcement

Hi... just popping by to tell you that we have chosen some new members of our Design Team, and I hope you will welcome and support them in the coming months... So without further ado, they are:-

Sue 
I've been married to Neil for 30 years this July, have two almost grown up children of 21 & 18, and a cat who rules us all.  I work part time to fund my chocolate and craft addictions.

I've been crafting for about 5 years, and like so many people it was a Kanban kit that Dawn Bibby demonstrated on QVC that started me on this slippery path of inky fingers and rubber hoarding.  My first love has always been rubber stamping, I don't think I've ever made anything that didn't involve a stamp.

I don't know how I would describe my style, I love collage, don't do cute, get through tons of embossing powder and am just dipping my toe into the whole art journal thing. My son described me as 'weird', but we settled on 'quirky'  The stupid blog name comes from my playing Monopoly on the bus to work, on my mobile phone. On my turn it's always displayed as Sue the Iron!
So there you are, this is me. xx

Monique
something about me ....
Well I'm dutch, I'm 45 yrs old , married, have 2 kids (girl 16, boy 14) and 2 cats. I love to get my fingers inky and love stamping and reading.

As you can see on my blog I do have a bit of a dark side...
I started scrapbooking 8 yrs ago and got into card making and stamping from there.
Best regards xx

I'm thrilled to have been invited to join the DreamTeam! I have a real passion for tags as they are fabulous size to be able to showcase your style. I am influenced by Wendy Vecchi, Tim Holtz and PaperArtsy but often inspiration strikes at the oddest time! I am lucky and have a studio in my garden where I escape to! xx
May
My name is May, I have been crafting around 6 years now, I work full
time for the NHS after a busy day! I can be found in my little crafty
space surrounded with paper and ink, I love papercrafting with a passion.

I'm just delighted to be on the DT Team for DragonsDream Tag it on
and so pleased to be working alonside such talented ladies xx


So there they are, finally. It has taken a while but I feel we now have a very good mix of styles and personalities... Thanks to all those others who applied. When it comes round next time, please try again, as none of you missed out by much!! I am VERY happy to welcome these ladies to my DreamTeam and look forward to them TIOing with us very soon.
Love and Light
Frankie

TIO #113 - Angels and Demons

What a great crop of tags from last time... Thorn Birds seemed to capture your dreams well, so thanks to all who participated. We really appreciate your support.

This time, it's Blackdragon's choice of book title and what could be more fitting for challenge 113 than a nightmare, rather than a dream!!!??? Yes, she has chosen Dan Brown's best seller, Angels and Demons... she really makes us think,eh?? well she really challenges me, Dragon, to think differently!! So here we go. Create your tag with at least one real stamp, and then post it for us all to share!!

Dark matters this time then, but such fun. I really enjoyed this one once I got the nightmare/dream into my head!! So, just get out your stash and get inky, you will have fun too, and remember just to ENJOY!!
