T stands for…latte, a Dragons Dream and a trip to the seaside

I'm at it again..trying to cram too much into one post but I realised that the deadline for Dragons Dream is in..yipes!... 3 hours!!! I made this tag yesterday but this morning felt quite poorly so having done my duty(see the previous post)I went back to bed! I don't know what was wrong but I'm fine now and have just got back from picking up GD and a bit of shopping!
I'm also here for T stands for Tuesday with Bleubeard and Elizabeth and to show you photos from Vintage by the Sea.
The theme at Dragons Dream TIO is the number 3.
I had no doubt which stamp I was going to use - it is one of Julia's that I bought at the WOYWW crop last May. It reminded me of my 3 boys when they were younger.
I layered the two Artistic Stamper grass stamps in a combination of DIs -Pine Needles, Mown Grass and Black Archival onto a tag that I had sprinkled with Brushos and spritzed with water.
 The image was stamped with Coffee Archival and then washed over with watered down Vintage photo which was also used around the edges.It was then mounted on to some rescued bread wrapper(edged with Vintage Photo.
I used part of a copper plant label to add some stamping using Stazon and an Artemio foam number. All I need then was my clock to show the passing of time and something suitable for the top and bottom.

My drink this week is a Latte, made with our lovely little machine at the caravan.
I had just cleared away after making some Christmas cards.

Now, you may remember we went to Morecambe the other weekend to Vintage by the Sea. Wayne Hemmingway started this about three years ago and it has grown each year!The sun shone and there was a flypast by a wartime Hurricane plane, lots to see and do!!

What a gorgeous site. I was in awe of the buildings. I was a bit perplexed, since I wasn't sure if I was looking at Art Deco from the 20s or at very modern buildings. Regardless, the architecture was simply fascinating.

I'm sure by now you are well, so I will just say don't overdo yourself.

I enjoyed the tag. Not sure why you didn't also add it to TioT, but I like the stamp you used. I have one (ONE) of those photo type stamps, and I can't get it to stamp properly, even after doing a lot of "conditioning" it, and stamping 25 cards. I applaud you for the ease with which you created that one, and I am in total awe of it. Julia would be proud. I like the color, too. Vintage, sepia, and a touch of nostalgia.

I will share a latte with you. It looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing your latte, your gorgeous tag, and your amazing photos with us for T this Tuesday.

Glad to hear you're feeling better - going back to bed always the best option!! Looks like another busy day out too - you put me to shame!

Delightful tag - the layered grasses in the background are so pretty, and the Pals are wonderful.
