Here is my very, very, very  late entry for what is now last weeks tag theme.  I had started this in plenty of time and had made the coconuts on their stands and I had selected the papers I wanted to use - It just had to be my favourite Graphic 45 papers for this tag ........ and then life took over!

My youngest decided to fall when doing a flick in Gymnastics and he is now nursing a broken wrist and a fractured arm!  Not one to do things by halves. ;-)  The fantastic NHS have sorted him out though and he now has an impressive cast on his right wrist and a splint on his left.  So as you can imagine my usual crafting time has gone out the window and I am late for everything!!

I am sure you won't mind if I do enter this anyway as my coconuts really are cute (if I say so myself!!)  Hmmmmmm I think that sentence needs a photo caveat! .........

It's funny but I have sung along to this little tune many a time and didn't realise it was about a coconut shy at the fair!

Had a good day today as Callum went back to school and I had a good catch up with myself.  I have one card left to make for my day of teaching on Friday and I may even get a bit of time to make my Circus tag - More Graphic 45 I think!!

I am looking forward to catching up with what lovely tags you have all been making.  Have a great week.........See you soon with my Circus tag.........Touch Wood ;-D


  1. OMgoodness, poor wee mite I hope he's not in too much pain. It must be very difficult to do many things for himself for the next wee while. Sending best wishes for a speedy recovery.
    Your tag is excellent. I was surprised how many people don't know about coconut shys. I love the song words you've put on it too :0)
