Okay ... I have to admit ... I have worn myself out with excitement and I really need to reign my high spirits in a bit if I want to stay awake for Ranger U! So ... tonight anyways I am taking everything at a nice, slow and sedate pace ... hopefully managing to stay calm and get a decent nights sleep!
I think John is hoping for that too ... he was less than impressed ... putting it mildly ... when I awoke him at 12.30am this morning to ask if the U.S was in front or behind us time wise and then I squealed with excitement when I realised in only a week's time I would be getting ready for the Ranger U Barbie :0)
I have had a wonderful day teaching a class at Olney with a wonderful group of ladies ... and I reckon they will be impressed too when they see that I actually managed to get everyone in my photos for a change! They all made a wonderful job of the project and they put up with my constant ramblings about meeting Lord Tim of Holtz and The Wendy Vecchi!
I hope you are sitting comfortably for the Distress Inks on tag number six ... in no particular order ... I used ... Rusty Hinge; Scattered Straw; Shabby Shutters; Dried Marigold; Wild Honey; Crushed Olive and Antique linen ... by my calculations that only leaves 8 colours on 5 more tags ... do-able I reckon! The grunge rose is the middle sized flower from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 collection ... all the other stamps and embellishments are Lord Tim of Holtz's ... you know Tim ... the man that can create a rainbow over every continent on our planet and several others at the same time while holding his breath underwater for a full hour with just a nozzle from a Mini Mister and a Game Spinner!
Okay ... if you have only just joined us and you are wondering what on earth I am on about ... myself and Anneliese Bates will be off to Ranger U in 6 more sleeps ... we are making a new tag each day to mark the final ten sleeps countdown ... Anneliese's tag can be found here and if you fancy joining in with one tag or all ten then please leave a link to your blog in the comments so we can check yours out too!
I am off to soak in the bath with a nice cold glass of white wine ... laters!
