Congrats to you! Wish I could have won it, LOL

So, onto our challenge for this week, which you may have figured is all about Autumn. Seems to have arrived with a bang here in the UK, especially so up where I am in NE Scotland. Minus Four degrees in the Highlands at the weekend - aaargh!! Trees are changing colour now too. Best time of the year for all those gorgeous colours.

Anything autumn-y will do, layouts, knitted scarves (need to get mine out!) colours, Harvest, tags, whatever. We are sponsored by this week by our regular sponsor The Craft Barn who give the most wonderful prize of £15 to spend in store just make sure you pop their link in your post to be eligible for the prize!

And here for your inspiration are some yummy samples from the TT DT:

Emma has chosen this weeks topic which is "It takes all sorts" - an easy one to follow so lets see what you come up with.

We have a new sponsor - a few weeks ago we met a lady called Bea at a social get together who owns this fab company. We were blown away by the gorgeous colours and types of ribbon so just had to indulge!

Bea offered to sponsor Tuesday Taggers and this is the lush prize!

So my dear friends keep up the good work and let's see what you make of this weeks theme Diamonds are Forever
which has been set by myself (Pat).  I think this offers plenty of scope, be it diamond shapes, shaped cards, or if you've got an odd diamond or two lying around perhaps you could incorporate them!

Our guest designer this week is Yvonne aka Von who has created this wonderful hanger for us


So without further ado let's check out the  DT's inspirational  creations







What a brilliant selection, I'm sure you'll agree, so now it's over to you.

It's my turn (Michelle) this week to choose the theme for the challenge
Not many entries for the houses theme last week, I hope we're not scaring you off. An easy one this week and now the kids have gone back to school, and the sun has gone walkabout again, perhaps it's something you'll have a little more time to explore

The challenge this week is to include something to do with books in your project. This could be a project inspired by a book you love, An image with a book in it, an altered book, a project using a page from a book or even a hand made book, a book token gift card etc etc.

Hope that gives you a few ideas
and there are a few more from the Design team to wet your creative appetite.

Our Winner last week Meggymay is our fabulous guest designer this week. You might like to read a few words from her.
