TAG - You're IT
I have been mooching around the UKScrappers website for quite a while now wondering about the challenges and swaps. I don't feel that I can commit to a weekly layout challenge what will working full time, taking care of 2 kids, a house and husband - there's just not enough time!
The monthly altered tag swap caught my eye! A whole month to alter 6 tags in a selected theme - surely even I can manage that?
In May, the group selected the theme "Alice in Wonderland" - I wish I'd noticed that one in time.
For June it's "A Midsummer Nights Dream" - sign me up!!!
Each participant is put into a team, they make their tags and send them to the host along with an SAE.
Once the tags have been received at the end of June, the host (Netty) sends everyone 6 tags back - what a wonderful way to collect original artwork!
After a quick recap about the play on the interweb, I hotfooted it down to the local Hobbycraft to find some fairy stamps. £4.99 for fairy stamps and £5.99 for some lovely V&A background stamps which look kind of foresty. Sorted!
My tags went in the post today.
I'm really looking forward to receiving the other tags but I suddenly feel very apprehensive about the quality of mine.
