I'm So Sorry

Good morning, and happy Saturday to you!  Do you have something fun planned today? I have no idea what we are going to do. The highlight of our day may be baking brownies. Mmmm...

I have to tell you a boneheaded thing I did. I was working on this tag Thursday night late. When I got up the next morning, I piddled with it some more, then went to Facebook to chat with some friends, went back to piddle with the tag, went to fix lunch, back to the tag... you get the idea. I finally decided to just go take a picture of the thing, get it posted, and be done with it already. So I grabbed the camera, picked up the tag, and I heard, "Ting, ting, ting..." Yep. The dew drops that I had NOT glued down yet went skittering and bouncing all over the table and around the floor. LOL

LOL, I do things like that all the time! I think something is stuck down, but it isn't! I'm glad my dog doesn't eat EVERYTHING off the floor, lol! This is just a fabulous tag--I adore the dew drops as apples! Thanks so much for joining us at FYI! I hope you'll join us for our challenges at Inkspirational and Technique Tuesday, too!

I really enjoyed your story, Janis. I do a lot of piddling myself. My husband calls me a piddler, so I'm glad to hear I'm not alone. Your tag is wonderful! You put a lot into it!
