Confessions of a 'Lady'...........

Hi, I started to make a Large Corrugated Tag for Dragons Dream Tag it On, where the subject is 'Romance' based on 'Letters to Juliet'  ............hmmmmmmm better explain my thinking on this.......Juliet the girl in the centre of the tag  is clutching her handbag and doesn't want you to see whats inside..................

and can you blame her..................the letters inside the handbag are confessions written to her from her mother, plus a few pictures..........to say this was a shock to poor Juliet is an understatement.........lol

Then the Large Tag sort of developed into a Calendar.........now how did that happen!!!!!
Stamps are by Paper Artsy.
Sorry about the poor quality of the above picture, not sure why this happened..........if I can get a better shot before this is posted to one of my dear blogging friends in the States I will.

Hope you all had a great weekend......mine was spent cooking meals for the week and painting, hubby did the washing and the cleaning so we are all set up for next week when its Christmas Shopping time.
Take care and thanks for popping by, Hugs Annette x

PS....... A few have asked what those secret confessions were......if you look at the bottom right of the tag....her mother was a lady of the night.............need I say any more........lol x
