Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair

Hi everyone.........It's time for another challenge over at A Vintage Journey and it's Jenny Buttons, who is the host of our "Destination Challenge"

Jenny would love to see a creation based on a destination of your choice. You don't have to use Tim Holtz Stamps but he has provided many destinations..........just go where your creativity takes you. 

Below you can see my project, which is inspired by a song by Scott McKenzie. I was just a little girl in the 60's but every time I hear it I feel so happy inside and this year I plan to take a trip there.................San Francisco, California.

 It's a little tag book, which may hold some of my tickets etc as mementos of our trip

 First of all I embossed a size 12 tag with one of Tim's embossing folders
 SA stamps,  Tim Holtz Sizzix die cuts, correspondence stamps and ephemera
 I used Cracked Pistachio and Vintage Photo to highlight the raised embossing.
 Above you can see the back of the album

As always we welcome you on board and would remind you that each Monday our Destination Inspiration Posts continue, displaying a travel bag full of products and techniques. 

Take care and catch up soon x

Thank You too for dropping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.....they are truly appreciated. .....I am on a break for a few days to a family gathering but will be back Monday 6th so catch up then

Huge hugs as always  xxxx

    Saw your comment on Valerie's blog about our weather. I wonder whereabouts in Scotland you are (you can email me if you like). My vegetables are growing well but the poor flowers are fairly fed-up. At least it's not too hot, haha!

  17. For sure I have never seen a tag book before - or if so, I forgot already Annie. This is so fun and Wow - it's FABULOUS. It looks like leather and somehow it just makes me happy to see it - like I wouldn't mind a trip to San Francisco! j.
