I've no idea what you would call a collection of 'scallywags' ... but here they all are, looking as if they are up to no good!

My 20 minutes crafting, turned out to be a tad longer yesterday..and what a fine mess I made!
I'm glad no one is actually here watching me as I am not a tidy worker!

I cut some tags...super sized sizzix tags.

Fetched all the glitzy bits and pieces.

She has to be my fave! L'il darling!

I'm actually making these into tag books ...great for little gifts for children... (or the adult who has not quite grown up!) and today I'm progressing to... pirates and golliwogs .
I might even make some with chefs on the front, for recipe books...so many ideas are spinning round in my head!
That'll be quite a gathering in my house!

Meanwhile, in the craft room, there's a rumpus of little rascals, which I need to sort out right away!
It beats housework... (although that's what I tell him I do all day!)

I love your scallywags! Especially the ones in hats. I bet you've taught a few scallywags in your time Sal!

Hello, another new word for my English vocabulary ! I didn't understand what was a scallywag ...
A look in my dictionary ... and I understand.
What you made is very nice. Les enfants ont bien de la chance d'avoir de si jolis petits cadeaux !
Tu es une personne généreuse et tu as beaucoup d'imagination !
Bonne journée !

What great gifts for kids! and I think I would fall into the category as ideal for those adults who haven't quite grown up yet!
