Cracking Curiosity...

This week over on LInda's blog Studio L3 ( what a great name :) we have reached week 9 of Compendium of Curiosities challenge!! week 9! I only think I have done some of them, and this one appealed. No telling you how to do it.. you need THE BOOK!  However I can tell you I made a tag, used the Fanciful Flight die, and Tim's Grunge paper stack.. Was great fun making this...and a challenge to say the least!


Thank you Linda... and if you haven't taken part yet.. have a go.. some great prizes up for grabs:)))
Edited....to also include Simon Says Stamp And Show as this also fits the bill, and it was suggested to me by Lynne that I enter it!
Have crackingly creative day!
Hugs
