TIO #94 - Bed of Roses, Bon Jovi (Metal) and New DT Members

Well, everyone, before Elizabeth switches us on and spins us around for the first of our song titles, this round, I have exciting news ... sadly we had to say goodye to two members of the DreamTeam last week, but now - tada!!!!! I want to introduce 3, yes three new ones, and wow are they going to be good....

Aj - Fistful of Glitter - who lives far to our north and is wife and mother of four - good luck with that last one!!! She makes great stuff...
Silvia (aka Barnie) - BarniesBaustelle - is a wonderful German stamper whose work I have admired for a while now...
Lyn(x) - (aka Blackdragon) - Blackdragon's Crafts - is a master of the dark arts!!! tee hee!! she is very alternative and will keep us all on our toes with her wonderful creations...

So there they are... please visit their blogs to find out just what a lucky lady I really am!!!! This team is going to inspire you and make you want to create wonderful dreams, so without further ado - over to Elizabeth, to start us all off with our song titles - the themes for this next few weeks...

One of my most loved songs of all time has to be "Bed of Roses" by Bon Jovi, it's such a beautiful love song, and I'm a soppy old Hector at heart!

Inspired by Frankie's metal flowers I decided to have a go at making some of my own, the perfect match for my song choice. . I hope my choice of song will inspire you to dream with us this week. So we are dreaming Roses and Metal with at least one real stamp somewhere in your creation!! Elizabeth xxx

Love and light

TIO #93 - "Travel - Time to Make a Get Away!!"

Another week has come and gone in this year of lightening fast days!!! I admit I just can't keep up, and here we are towards the end of August!!! It is a double sadness here at TIO, that sees us saying goodbye to two of our valued team members... life is just getting in the way for them, so they are dropping out of teamie duties, but not from the challenge completely I hope... they have been fabulous contributors, and will be greatly missed... frankie@gaywood.net if you fancy applying to join us... (my addy was wrong on the last DT call, so sorry about that!!!)

Well we had some fabulous Child's Play last week, and you really seemed to enjoy that... so this week, it's MY own turn again. I seem to have chosen a popular theme around and about, and that is "Travel- Time to Get Away" ...I shall choose some of your offerings, if there are enough, and make a sampler again this week... here goes then, with our current full team for the last time... take it away girls...

TIO #91 - It’s a horse’s life

It's Wednesday, it must be Dragon's Dream TIO and time for a new challenge.   It is surprising sometimes which subjects you will like and when... guess the start of the school holidays here in the UK, combined with some lovely weather, took you away from your craft rooms last week.   Those of you who did join us shared wonderful work and it was a great pleasure to visit you.

Have to wonder what you will make of this week's dream,as it is my turn (Zoe) to suggest the theme, which is A Dog's Horse's life.   Beautiful, graceful, amazing beings, I'll not bore you here, but be warned I'll pay homage on my-own blog.

Another week and another fab set of tags... I really appreciate my teams' hard work. Please feel free to join in with us and don't forget to use at least one real stamp.... but most of all ENJOY!!!

TIO #90 - Nature's Bounty

Hi there, Wanda here, and it's my turn to set the challenge this week. I am struck by all that nature has to offer for our plates, especially at the moment, so I thought "Nature's Bounty" would be a very fitting theme for this weeks' challenge. We hope you will feel inspired by the fabulous, varied design team enties, enough to dream along with us. Please remember to use at least one real stamp in your work.
