WOYWW ? a bit of this and a bit of that

 Hi, fellow desk snoopers. Tis time for another Wednesday swoop round the workdesks of the world, thanks to Head Girl Julia.
Today you find me going on my travels - though sadly only in my dreams! At Dragons-Dream, it is Frankie's turn to set the theme for our Tag It On Challenge today - and the theme is travel.
I actually had most of this tag made before the theme was set, but hadn't blogged it, so just had to add a couple of finishing touches!  Result - don't you love it when that happens.  If you fancy joining us, we have a call out for DT members - check the Dragons-Dream blog for details.  Also, this week, travel is the theme at SimonSays Stamp and Show too - so this is my entry there too.

So, on this fine (probably not sunny) Wednesday, what is occurring chez H?  Well, no new stash - I MUST NOT buy anything else till Ally Pally in September -  but there is a new magazine though; waiting to be read - and a tag in progress for a swap I can't share yet  It's currently being weighed down to let some glue fix!
So, come over to Dragons-Dream and play with us - and catch up some far more creative workdesks than mine! Happy Wednesday.

Last year I learned what Ally Pally was, so will watch in anticipation of what you bring home this year. That's a great tag. I agree that if you can use something that was made before, but not specific to any challenge, that's a great way to go. Very nice addition to the book.

Lots of travel themes this week! Like the tag on the book - great stuff... Never done Ally Pally and still contemplating the madness myself...
Thanks for sharing today. Sarah (at 1)

Does the limited size of the tag make you think more about the layout rather than a larger item? I suppose (as a non-cardmaker) that it's more a case of what you leave out makes it more effective? It's very elegant, anyway!! xx

Jona Panesa said...

loved your tag. I guess I should try making tags and incorporating it in my pages. thanks for the inspiration!

NatashaMay said...

Oh yes! I love it when you're in sync with the universe. :) Great tag! Eiffel tower is one of my to-do things. :) I've been there but could't go up once because of the wind and once because of the croud. I was really upset about that. Going to Paris and not going up the Eiffel tower.

Spyder said...

Morning, yes I finally got to bed about 5 minutes before I got up!!
Love your tag, really wish I could make one that good! Very busy work desk as usual, have a great day...I'm fighting monsters from the moon...or in other words..mother!! ((Lyn))

Neet said...

If I get chance I will join in this week as I do love Travel as a theme. Yours has inspired me to do it and I must say how much I love the torn strip down the side.
Thanks for the good wishes and the look around your workdesk. Hugs, Neet #2

I cancelled all my mags in an economy drive last year. I really miss the Take Tens. Now things are on an even keel again, I must slap Mr D about for agreement to start again!!

sandra de said...

Lovely to see a completed tag covering the book. I make the tags and then put them in a box!! I have been wondering if Take Ten is worth subscribing, will be interested to read peoples comments.

Jen said...

Lovely tag, like the roses and the journalling is a perfect touch.
