Everything Tim ... Well ... Nearly!

You would have thought I would have learned by now ... but sadly ... it appears not! What with the halo polishing and all the bragging I did last week ... you know ... the whole blogging every day thing ... well you would have thought I would have at least turned up on day 9 and 10 and 11 to post ... well ... erm ... summink on the ole blog! But nothing ... nada ... zilch!
In my defence I was busy having a good time! A day with the Wonderful Lin and the lovely Karen ... A morning shopping with John ... he bought me the most gorgeous jacket ... then we spent Friday afternoon eating choccies and watching movies ... I know ... on a Friday ... How decadent is that!
Saturday ... a bit of dog walking; more movie watching and dinner for two in a Thai restaurant meant that Sunday was all about rushing around and trying to catch up with all the things I should have done ... with ... erm ... with no time left to blog! Whoops!
Anyways ... I am here now to tell you all about the new theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Anything Goes! Now this of course means that if you make anything ... from a tag to a semi-detached residence between now and next Monday ... well you can link up to the challenge and be in with a chance of winning a $50 Shopping Spree at Simon Says Stamp! Cool ... Huh?
I am right into journaling on anything and everything at the moment ... so I made myself a mini journal to fill! It is nice and ickle too ... fits nicely into that mini suitcase that I made aaaaaaages ago! It was indeed inspired by Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can build a scale model of Big Ben on the edge of a piece of copy paper while performing open heart surgery on a butterfly with just a Ranger Manilla Tag and a smidgeon of Black accents!
I must away ... I still have loads to catch up on ...
Have a good week people ...
Laters!

I was admiring your mini album and suitcase when all of the sudden Tim makes an appearance. I gotta say I love it. The mini album and Tim's "guest" appearance on your blog.
