TIO #106 - The Da Vinci Code - Homage to the Great Man

Well yet another week has flown by. I really must thank everyone who entered last week's challenge - what a beautiful selection of Oriental tags, every one of them different but every one stunning. It is my (blackdragon) turn to pick the challenge this week, and we are still being inspired by film titles.... if you thought....'She'll pick something gothic horror-ish.....' NO! ......I chose 'The da vinci code'..... so please take inspiration from... (in my humble opinion) the greatest artist who ever lived.... LEONARDO da VINCI. I couldn't help myself.... I made two tags instead of one.... I hope you'll be as inspired by da Vinci as I am...

I did not get any time to have a go at my beloved oriental theme last week... just too many things tto be done to be prepared for mum. I have not forgotten about my promise to do a giveaway, so tada!!! the winner of my random draw for the Steampunk theme from Wanda a couple of weeks ago is


So please get in touch on my email and I will send you the tag below, made as part of a larger piece here


.So there we are for yet another week... rolling on to Christmas.... and with that in mind and the imminent arrival of my mum, we are having two weeks for this theme. We will be back with a science fiction/fantasy theme from me which will be gothic/Victorian/steampunk. Then there will be a total break until mid January to give us all a rest and time to enjoy the season - the team is struggling as well as myself, just now, so this break will do everyone a lot of good... We WILL be back, so keep watching after Christmas!!! Meanwhile, some Da Vinci please, and most of all, ENJOY!!!
Love and light

Time is flying and it's Wednesday again. It's me, Silvia, this week and we're going on with our wonderful round of film titles. Lots of great Romance entries last week - thanks to all participants.

Hope you are enjoying these creations as much as I am. My DreamTeam is just so wonderfully creative and so supportive. I shall be late again this week, as family birthdays are full on just now and my usually slow crafting is at snail pace at the moment!!! I shall be back very soon, but can't twiddle anymore today, as I am off to Yorkshire to sort out the dreadful situation surrounding my poor old mum...

Please do join in with this interesting and different (at the moment) theme... there is such a lot of scope for all your creative stuff to come out, so get inky, use at least one real stamp, and link up so we can come and see. When I post my tag, I shall announce who and what won the #103 Steampunk ickle prize I offered... most of all ENJOY!!

TIO #104 - Letters to Juliet - EDITED +

Hi, The Dragon here...Well, you really pushed the boat out last week and showed us some great steampunk/Victorian/toys stuff, thanks very much. We really enjoyed seeing it all. As we had a reasonable response, I will find a little something for one lucky winner... but we need a bigger turnout for a really good prize... I will choose this at random, as you are all so good!!!

So, our theme for this round was chosen by me, Aj. and is  titled "Letters to Juliet" and we would love you to show us some  Romance. You have loads of scope here folks, so please dream with us and be sure to use at least one real stamp...

Aj.

 So there you have it again, my friends and Dreamers... another wonderful batch. My own is lacking at the moment because I am desperately trying to finish a trishutter for the fragrant Freddie's 60th birthday tomorrow (Thursday 10th Nov). I WILL join in very shortly, but meanwhile forgive me, cos my poorly wrist is still achy and my thumb is still rather painful...So come back soon to see my tag, please.  I DO hope you will dream with us again this week, and so I send you off to get inky, using those real stamps... just get romantic!!! and ENJOY...

See, I said I would do it... hope it fits the bill, as I have not seen this film!! Really enjoyed making it.
Love and Light

Hi... the Boss here again, or "Drakon" as I have been renamed by Netty!!! She says she looked it up, but I am not sure where!!! tee hee... anyway, taken another goodness knows how long to post this so bear with!!!

Have you noticed the auspicious number in the title??? It's my 100th TIO challenge and should have been amazing, with a give away and everything!!! but I will save that for when I am able...

Now... this challenge would have been my next blockbuster!!! It's all there, desperate to pop out, but I can't even do my own bra!! Freddie has to do it before he goes to work... that's what I am reduced to !!! So come on... show me your tickets and make it MEGA to cheer me up and make me proud!!! I only ask to use at least one real stamp...

Helen
ALL our love to Helen, girls... she lost her mum this week, but has still made us this wonderful tag... bless you and your family, Helen...we are all with you. Your darling mum has her ticket to ride wherever she wants to now...
