Chillax, It's TCP Tuesday!

Well, today we have more of the same weather (springlike and rainy--in JULY!), but that's perfectly fine with me.  I love the simple life of hanging out at home and everyone "doing their own thing".  Audrie has a dentist appointment this morning, and then I have a couple of errands to run (running out of ATG gun adhesive at the most inopportune time=a crafting emergency), and then, "AHHHHH"--I'll be home.
That's what's going on lifewise.  Here's what's going on craftwise:  It's TCP Tuesday from THE CAT'S PAJAMASThis month, Alma is challenging everyone to include a handmade tag on your card or project, or simply make the tag BE your project!  

So as I told ya'll yesterday, I was going to show ya'll something you don't see from me everyday, but I hope to share more often, if ya'll don't mind.  If you've been hanging around here long enough, ya'll know that I'm a scrapbooker as well as a cardmaker.  It's actually where my love of paper began.  I did this scrapbook page in advance of our trip to a beach (somewhere--Pensacola, or now we are thinking Corpus Christi, TX) in the next few weeks.  We need to decide quick!  I used a few different things from The Cat's Pajamas on here and it came together super quick.  The sentiment on the patterned paper is stamped from the LIFE'S A BEACH set and you can readily see a couple of the CutUps dies I used--GLASSES and the WAVE border dies

Then there's the TAG!  I used the one of the new LUGGAGE TAG CutUps dies, stamped it with several images from the SUMMER SENTIMENTS stamp set, and finished it off with some ribbon and Linen Thread. 

We'd love it if you played along in our TCP Tuesday challenge!  HERE'S the details on what will come of it if you do!  

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Since I don't have pictures for this page yet (am I the only one that does this--make pages ahead of time?), I adhered the tag with non-permanent adhesive so I can easily pull it off and then restick it onto the corner of the beautiful beach pic that will be there very very very soon.  AHHHHHH!!!  Can't wait to drink something with an umbrella in it!
