 Tags.  Who knew making a tag could be so engrossing?  The techniques here were carefully laid out by Mr. Tim Holtz, he made it look very easy on his blog and I had (most) of the materials on hand so I thought I'd give it a try.  And it was easy - and very fun - and took me forever :)  But, hey, I learned something new and am pretty pleased with how it turned out for the first shot!  

 Thanks to these challenges for giving me the inspiration and allowing me to share my little creation:

 Tim Holtz 12 Tags - Technique

 Use Your Stuff - Tag

 Crafty Boots - Something Old/Something New

The Paper Players - Use a number
 (I think Roman numerals count :)

 Simon Says Monday Challenge - Something New
