Hello everyone,

Saturday morning here at the time I'm writing this post, and I'm pretty excited..

I have a new upright deepfreeze arriving with drawers for all my veges, I'm like a squirrel saving it's nuts for the winter, but I grow a lot and it makes sense to freeze then I always have stuff on hand.. 

My chest freezer [ although small ]  is great for the meat a bigger stuff but I loose my little packets of veges like baby food...I LOVE baby food, I eat it like soup!! I'm feeling a little peckish, better get on with my post..

Tags is the subject today..nautical of course, that bug is still hanging around..

Oh,my, look at this Anchor, what a beauty he is and really big..

after die cutting I coloured him with markers and ink..

the extra ropes I coloured and inked and glued them in place,
3 times, until I figure out I was doing it wrong, but all sorted in the end..

picked out my papers...

and found more pads on a site in Australia
love,love,love.these.. so guess who went sever shopping..

After I picked the base I ripped up scraps to add on..

and the best bit is, they were the reverse side..

added my giant anchor ..

Then sorted through my fussy cut outs from this book.

made reinforcing rings using a tiny die from Magnolia stamps..

second tag getting sorted..

Gluing time, and need birds..

Love my birds, nautical and birds..

I think this is where they need to go..

Bit closer..


And no splatter, I must have forgot or
could have possibly been no room, these are pretty loaded..

So there we go..
Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'm off for some toast, then check the gap in the garage again, make sure it is just right//
I'll see you tomorrow or Monday..
Have an awesome weekend..

These are just amazing. Fabulous designs Chrissy.
By now your freezer is probably in and filled up to the brim. I have a question for you. When you say veggie baby food, do you mean you mashed up the veg, because we do that with left overs and call it Fry-up, which btw is delicious....occasionally I do freeze it for another meal, add some crispy bacon and wowser, hahaha, now who's

Sigh. These are beautiful, Miss Chrissy! The colors, the elements, the distressing... all lovely! I'm happy for you about the freezer. While chest freezers are a bit more economical, it's hard to keep things organized. We grow a lot in our greenhouse, and outdoor garden, and enjoy freezing and canning the goodies. Hoping the freezer is all you hoped for! hugs, de

I was very excited when we got our freezer too, not having to run to the store so much made this girl very happy.
Your tags are fantastic, such fun papers to go with your scenes, you have put them together so cool!

These are wonderful, Chrissy! As usual, the seagulls are my favorite but the other elements are absolutely amazing. Yay for the new freezer. There is nothing like home grown veggies.
