Go On ... I Dare You!

wish 1a

When I first saw the mini luggage from Zutter ... Well I just knew I had to have one! They are sooooo cute!

As many of you know I am on the DT for Aussie Dares and the dare for October is "I Wish ..."

Now I bet the rest of the DT wished I would get my act together ... there I was merrily putting the finishing touches to my submission ... which is due on the 2nd October 2009 ... then I see it is already the 2nd October 2009 in Australia and I am late! Whoops!

Anyways ... back to the Dare ... I wish ...

I thought it would be really nice to be able to give someone a book of wishes ... so I made one ... then decided to give it to myself :0)

I made a rule that they had to be proper wishes ... Wish 1 none of this ... I wish I had more money kind of a jobby ... but more childish wishes ... so I started my book with ... I wish my legs were longer! And continued from there! What would you wish for?

The hardware on the cover of the book were not only made by The man that can turn water into PVA glue ... Mr T!m ... but I also pinched the design from his blog too ... I hope he does n't mind ... actually I am pretty sure he won't notice ... Mmmm ... Is there another wish brewing?

Stamps are also by Mr T!m and the very talented Mrs Vecchi and I have used Fired Brick distress ink through out.

If you get chance this month please join in with the challenge  ... you can find the dare here!

Love the suitcase and wish book! great idea. re the corner rounder (angies blog) have you looked at the corner chomper yet? it's brillant!!! esp. if you use lots of chipboard. it has both size corners and is really easy to use.

I wish you were not as good at this stuff as you are to make me look vaguley up to it. I wish that I could 'do' your style. I wish I could get into TH stuff, but it's the exclamation mark...and I wish that my legs were longer, and my gob was smaller.

I love the idea of a tiny book inside a tiny case! The colours are gorgeous and the theme of wishes is a great idea.
Come on, everyone wants to know your other wishes - so let us see -pretty please.
