I'm a globetrotter this month!

What a busy month I've had! The kids have kept me on my toes with many practices and performances, including all three being in their "All School Play", which of course in an elementary school is reliant upon the parents doing a lot of volunteer work. I made a bunch of Viking and Celt costumes. Then, my big trip, hitting one of my bucket list items was a visit to Australia! My husband had a business trip down under and of course I HAD to make a vacation out of it. We've been wanting to go there since we were a young, freshly married couple. It's not like you can experience all of Australia in a short week though. It's as big and diverse as the United States actually. We were able to visit both Melbourne and Sydney, which isn't outback-y at all. But still beautiful and loads of fun.

Now this isn't a vacation post, but it is related to Australia...this is an entry in the Helmar Make-A-Tag Challenge! Helmar is an awesome craft and art adhesives company out of Australia. They provided a little tag sketch challenge this month and I seem to have a passion for tags. I just love adding them to handmade cards and scrapbook pages. So I think this one will fit great on some of my vacation scrap pages...


I used the Helmar Scrap Dots to elevate the fun circles over the tag and tape. All the stamps are from Unity Stamp Co, February SMAK kit "Going Places". Just perfect! I also had the opportunity to use my new washi tapes from Pick your Plum (not sure if they design these tapes, or just sell them). It sure is fun to use a whole bunch of fresh scrapbooking supplies! :) Thanks for the inspiration, Helmar!

Also entering this tag in the Moxie Fab Washi Tape Challenge with thanks to another Helmar entry that mentioned it! And of course I'll be sharing it at Unity for FWF next week too!
