Scrapbook Tuesday - Oh Deer!

Hello there!

Sorry for being late with my posting today, but the internet is sooooo slooooow round here I could not load the photos up!

Before I start I wish to say Hi to Julie Ann, my latest follower.  Thank you.

Never mind, here is this week's Scrapbook post.....

 Excuse the pun of the title, but I could not resist it!!  These photos were taken from the car as we drove around Longleat earlier this year.  They really are beautiful creatures and are pretty nosey!

MME papers and Bazzill cardstock as well as a few Snippets.  I placed a piece of hessian (burlap) in the ripped section just to add some dimension and layers.  It kinda reminds me of feed sacks.  Or even Santa's sack!!
The flourishes were cut using my Tonic dies which I purchased recently.  I had a credit on my account and needed to use it up quick or lose it.  These were £12.99 with free postage at the time and I love them.  I have used Tonic punches for years but these were my first dies.  They are so fine and cut with ease.
 A little Snippet of cream cardstock to cut a TH deer and stamped with SU stamp with Gathered Twigs DI, and the words tab was made eons ago on my Silhouette.  When you print and cut these you usually get four different coloured tabs and it seems a shame to waste the others!  The stripey parentheses was on the border edge of another MME paper so I cut it out by hand.  Waste not want not!
 This wooden flourish was from Kaisercraft which I have not used before NBUS, again I stamped it with DI.  In fact all the stamping was done with the same SU stamp.  I had a nice surprise with this.  I only ordered one, but when I opened the cellophane packet, there were two in there!  I like those surprises!
A little tag on the bottom recycled (made a mistake on the back ages ago!) and a VOS brad holding down the strip of TH film.  The words were cut on the Cricut.  

Right then, off to the Snippets Playground to share this as there are Snippets included.  Why not join in?  You get to play on the virtual swings and roundabouts!  Just link up HERE for any projects in which you have used Snippets.  Wow!  I just realised this is the 100th Snippets week - seems like yesterday that Miss was given the keys!

Thanks for calling by.
