These are a few of my favourite things ……..


What a lovely idea Tim has suggested for this month's tag - an opportunity to showcase some of our favourite things! 

As usual my tag is way way different to his ...


but the principle is the same. 

If you want to see how Tim created his May tag then go HERE for all the instructions and some fabulous ideas for the new ShadowPress embossing folders (I can't wait to get mine in June!).


And so to my favourite things - 
keys, spinners, butterflies and the lovely Wallflower Paper Stack.


A fabulous button and a brass plate slipped into my last parcel by Linda at the Funkie Junkie Boutique. 


I mounted all my pieces on some quite thick board and couldn't help organising them into a stict grid pattern (you can't change the habits of a lifetime!)


Thank you for visiting today and I hope you are getting some better weather than we are!

A fabulous take on Tim's tag Jennie, I love the sunny yellow tones of the background that is picked out with the yellow rose on the wallflower paper in its wonderful frame, and the rose embellishment. Mo x

Jennie...your take on Tim's May tag is beautiful. You have such a feminine, sweet and shabby style to all of your work. It's always beautifully done. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment about my faux tea roses canvas. <3 Candy

I am really enjoying seeing all the different interpretations of this tag by Tim. I love your flowers, especially that beautiful cream rose. I have not yet tried doing a Tim tag. You have inspired me, so maybe next time I'll join in! Julie Ann xxx

Your grid pattern gives the impression of a shadow box or printers tray, which we always use to house our favorite things! It's perfect and I love your choice of items and products!
