An adventure ...and a tag

Where would I like to go  today?
If I had a choice and the weather was  warm and I could go anywhere,
The magic carpet parked outside my front door.......
[maybe it would help my fear of flying]
Perhaps I would I  join Mr E., go for an adventure and see where the carpet landed.

I didn't know how this page would evolve,
it began with sticking a variety of scrap papers in to my journal.
Mr Evolution man was stamped onto tissue and as you can see he hadn't been stuck down properly, no worries a quote would cover that hole up.
What to add next, where would he go for his outing?  I remembered seeing these small pictures in  one of the scraps boxes, I think they may have been Crafty Individuals..

Six more days to get out and about at AJJ
I have so enjoyed seeing everyone's interpretation of the theme.
you  are all 'inspirational'.

Now I am sure Mr E.  would have packed a small suitcase,
just in case he decided to stop over somewhere.
So he would need a tag  with his name on written on the back so his luggage wouldn't get lost.....

More bits and pieces were used for this tag ....
Made....... so I can join the folk at

Tag Tuesday

where the theme for the challenge is 'Birds and Nests'.
The scribbly lines were added in my digital program.

Thank you for calling in to see me today,  I really enjoy your company here..

  9. wow - two stunning projects today Yvonne :)
    Your AJJ spread is absolutely fantastic with all the details
    (love that imagery especially - I keep meaning to look for those C.I mini image pads)
    and I think that magic carpet would be ideal to help with fear of flying -
    go any where - fresh air - a great view (seatbelts of course)...and it wouldn't be claustrophobic -
    Maybe you could swing by my way if you've room... I've only flown once (I'm claustrophobic) but it was a flight to remember as it was on Concorde.
    I love LOVE your tag too - those birds are beautiful!
    Have a great weekend... nice and sunny here for a change but still a bit breezy.
