When a tree falls

Afternoon all 

How are you today? Better than most I hope. 
Rain here today - had to pop into town first thing to post a parcel 
and to the Bank. 

Glad that Mum is back home from hospital but I do so wish she would 
rest... but what is the saying "you can not teach an old dog new tricks"
not that I am calling Mum an old dog, more like an "old" lady...

Made a quick tag today and hope that it will fit in with several 
challenges today. 

I thought of C is for Camera ...... 

I first started with one of my paper stash splatter papers and made a tag

I then used AlteNew Say Cheese Stamps to stamp camera across the tag
I used various AlteNew inks in various layers. 

Added a definition which I inked the edges with a hint of blue.

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for your comments yesterday I did enjoy reading them. 

I do feel that our life is what we make it, and it is up to us to make the most of 
our time here. Sometimes things get in the way, and for me it is stress and worry. 

But I have to remember that I am powerless over people places and things. 
And this too shall pass. 

Another saying is 

 "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

and with that thought I will say bye for now.
