A moth ate my Travel Guide!

Not really, I was just trying once again to get both challenges into one blog title.

The challenge over at the Every Inchie Monday blog was TRAVEL, and I decided to make a teeny weeny TRAVEL guide -




And over at the Tag Tuesday blog we have arrived at the letter M. I knew I had a very old book on MOTHS somewhere, and once they had nibbled away at my brain, that was it. I scanned in one page from the book, and for the background, I used a photograph I had taken of the night sky in France a couple of years ago. The metallic lace is there to represent the moonlight shimmering on, ermm, stuff. I also couldn't resist making a little moth out of a printed image, a bit of wire and a tiny piece of pipe cleaner -





We are still in the UK, as we need to take care of some elderly parents and elderly auntie stuff, but we are hoping to be on our way in a week's time. Can't wait.

Love that cute little travel guide and the moth tag is beautiful. You make such wonderful tags. How do you display all of them? I'd love to see a photo of how you use them.

I think your post title was perfect by the way!
