Tag Tuesday Challenge #59 - Hearts

The challenge this past week at Tag Tuesday was to make a tag with hearts.  Aaaahh, a heart challenge, turns one's thoughts to love, romance, passion, beheading, Hallowe'en.... No?  Then you haven't gotten your hands on the Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland papers, LOL!  I've been sooo itching to use these, and I've done it just by chance.  You see, I had every intention of joining in on Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge last week, which was to use distress embossing powders, but it went horribly wrong.  You can see a bit of it in the form of the scrolls around the outside of this tag, but the dirty secret lies beneath the images.... scary, I tell ya.  So instead, I decided to salvage what I could of my Compendium of Curiosities disaster and go the Curiouser and Curiouser route instead! (......oh, shhh, I can hear you groaning from here!!! ROFL! Yes, somewhat bonkers today ;))  Thus a heart-filled Alice Hallowe'en tag with a little distress emboss stamping, a coupla bats, some distressing, some inking... you get the picture.  This will go on some treats for the kids come October if I don't lose it before then.

Will try to stop neglecting the blog so badly!!  My daughter is now required to be at school at 7:20, my son at 9:15, then I get in line to pick up my daughter at 2:00, my son at 3:30 - back and forth, and it's making me totally zonk out by 10:00 pm, which is when I used to start crafting.  Gotta get a new rhythm going ;).  Plus I've been neglecting all of your beautiful blogs - I'm determined to visit soon.  Hope your Monday has been sweet - back again tomorrow hopefully.
