Hey Man! Tag you're it!

You see here my first tag for a Man, pretty near my first tag too. I've been wanting to try steam punk too, and hope this qualifies. My papers are Kay & Co, the little pix are from a 12x12 of postage style images. The fibre is Basic Grey, the pocket watch, buttons charm and chain are from Beads Direct. The crocheted lace and tie are handmade. 
I hope you can read the sentiment, Travels Inspire. Thought the perfect thing for a 'luggage tag'

I want to enter this Sentimental Sundays Challenge....Tag for a Man

*Using outside content in your My Memories Suite software* from Lisa Jurrens on Vimeo.
I've just worked along with this tutorial to learn how to use digital papers I already have on my pc...and I have a lot of them - yet another one of my addictions. It's so great to be able to make use of all these wonderful papers I've bought, in addition to those on My Memories. These papers are from Donna's Bearly Designs, and the added embellishments are part of the My Memories suite

You can do some really cool things with this software, and there are so many detailed tutorials to hold your hand every step of they way. If you are still undecided about having this great tool, I suggest a look at the above tutorial, or pop over and visit the blog to view any of the tutorials there. There are a great number of designers for you to browse through on the My Memories site, and many, many free papers, templates and quick pages that you can use with or without this software. 

To enter my give-away of this software program please go here. You can use this code STMMMS43270  any time to receive a $10 discount on the software.

My Memories Suite Giveaway

I have to admit, I've been longing to have a go with this wonderful Scrapbooking Software - My Memories Suite -so when it was offered to me I jumped up and down and then jumped at the chance. I can't begin to tell you how how easy (not to mention fun) it is. I did the first page while I was feeling quite poorly - now at my best I only function on half a brain cell - so it had to be super-easy.

This is from one of the made just add the pix....and leave it at that if you choose.  However,  you can still play around with it. I moved the shadows and changed the embellishments. I hadn't found the buttons at this point, or it would have been covered lol. 
This next couple of pages is using what's called a photo only template, so you add the backing and everything else yourself. You still have complete freedom and can move the photo's anywhere around the page. 
I loved the staples and clip so went a little mad lol. 
You can even add stitching to the buttons. 
 There is so much more you can do, cards and well as add sound and all kinds of cool stuff. There are plenty of How To Video's on the My Memories Blog, so you can have your hand help every step of the way if you wish.

As stated in the title, I'm allowed a copy of this to giveaway - someone is only two steps away from having this to play with too.

1) Be a Follower
2) Take a look around  My Memories and come back and leave a comment telling me which Kit, Quick Page, etc you most like.

It needle-be a Rainbow

I needle felted this Rainbow finch (Gouldian Finch) some months ago, and it's been keeping my daughter company hanging beside her bed since then....along with the Hummingbirds I felted. You can see the posts here and here, I hope you can see that my technique has improved a little. I made his beak myself with papier mashe, and coloured it with promarkers. 

A few more views below, wish I'd shown his tail clearer.

 I'm entering this at Paper Playtime Challenge for their Anything Goes, Past or Present.
