Mid-Month Media Monday

It's MEDIA MONDAY, so I'm thinking about one of my favorite Mamas and Papas songs, Monday, Monday.  "They" say, if you wore it the first time, you shouldn't be wearing it the second time around.  I gasped when I saw the skinny pants and boots.  I only remember bell bottom jeans and sandals!  If I had kept all that clothes, I'd have saved a pretty penny on my recent purchases!

Television Media
Is anyone else watching Ken Burns' The Roosevelts on PBS?  Every night this week! It's great compnay while I craft!

Magazine Media
I came across a most delightful magazine.  The best way I can describe it is "Pinterest meets blog in print form".  It's published 8 times a year and the issue I picked up says No.5 /2014.  It's a UK publication printed in Dutch, German and English.  Perhaps you've seen it?  It's entitled Daphne's Diary.  I found a website for it in case you'd like to learn more HERE

Cyber Challenge Recognition

I made the Top 3 for the August 2014 "word play" challenge at Country View and will have a guest design spot in the near future!  woo hoo!

I also was the random winner at Sentimental Sundays for Challenge 222, Back to School (my altered composition book entry).   I get 7 digi images from Bugaboo Stamps.  I can't wait to go shopping!!!

I was to be on holiday last week, but the hubby came down with a virus while at our first stop, resulting in our trip being cut short.  We returned home as soon as he was well enough to travel. While he rests, I'm hiding in my craft roon, far away from the germs.

This new-found time allowed me to play at Tag Tuesday with the theme Fairytales.  Better late than never, here is my tag, before the new theme gets posted.  Please catch up with all the inspiration from the other players HERE.

Since I was coming in on the (fairy) tale end, I dug out this lovely Gecko Galz digital image which I had printed out quite some time ago.  I added it to a Julie Nutting for Prima tag and an Alesa Baker Designs rubber stamp from Impression Obsession, Inc.  The glittery shoe is DCWV from a paper pack I've had for a few years.  Ribbons and flowers from my stash.

I'd like to add this tag to the following challenges:

As You Like It Challenge : Your Favourite Rubber Stamp and Why:  I have so many stamps that it's hard to choose just one as a favorite, but I love stamps that are a bit snarky or "tongue in cheek" such as this one.

A Creative Romance:  Anything Goes

All Sorts Challenge Week 276:  Sugar and Spice   That's right.  I always thought Cinderella was a bit too sugary.  But her sweet disposition did land her a prince and change of life's ciricumstances.

Frilly and Funky:  From the Heart:  ah that prince whose heart was stolen by Cinderella which sent him frantically searching for the young woman's foot that fit that sparkly shoe!
