A 'Green' tag.... pudding and a sneaky peek!.....

This weeks theme over at..
 I didn't know what to do for Green...
So many possibilities!!...
So I grabbed a chipboard tag..
 painted it green....
Then...I searched through my crafty stash to see what other green-ess I had!!
I found some lovely green lace
 (which I wrapped around my painted tag)
...It reminded me of the sea...
and this is what appeared a little while later!
 after adding painted clay cab face (green eyeshadow!!) and shells, fibers, charms, glass pebbles (boobies!),gems, beaded wire and a tim holtz sentiment tag.

Molly the mermaid looking quite content in her sea of Green!
Oh, just had to show you these scrummy lovelies...
These are the fab results of what my Callum (son #3)
made in his school catering exam today
He also made a yummy lasagne, but that didn't survive long enough to make the photo shoot at home!
He had to make a four course meal for four people...which took four hours!!
(OMG, don't think I've ever cooked for that length of time in one stretch in my life LOL!!)
The pavlova full of double cream and fruit was lush!!  :)
Mmmmmm....my hips will pay for it later!! ;)
Oh, and I've just finished a couple of Swaps I've been working for Speckled Egg Petite Inspiration matchbox - Birthday edition hosted by the lovely Heather..
(Just LOVE her swaps!!)
Here are a few little of Teases of what I made...
fractured dolls
fairy wings
 lots of lovely lace and buttons!
Birthday Joy & Birthday wishes!!

I will reveal all once my swap partners receive their boxes and goodies ;)
Thanks for peeking!
