12 Tags of 2015 - March

Hi Everyone

Just a quick post on this very changeable March day today - I think we are getting into practice for the season of April showers today here in a very blustery Derby!!!

Today I am posting my March tag and if you have seen Tim Holt's tag already you will know that mine is looking a little different as usual!  I hope you don't think this one is a bit cheesy!!!! ha ha ;-)

The first change I had to make was which stamp to use on my tag this month as I didn't have the gorgeous butterfly Tim used and then the phrase 'Say Cheese!' came into my head and so it continued!  I made myself a cheese effect stripe on my tag using washi tape.

I had fun trying out the embossing powder technique that Tim had on his tag and I will definitely try that again as it gives an interesting extra texture to embossing paste.  You can see how I got from Tim's inspiration to my interpretation this month if you take a look at my video below.

Of course, as usual, I made my little 3" square sampler piece too and you can see at the end of the video how this contrasts to the first two I have made so far this year!  I may need to tone it down a little but I am going to see where the rest of the year takes me before I decide.

So that is it from me except to say if you fancy playing along with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags Challenge then please follow this link - April begins tomorrow so I am looking forward to seeing the new tag inspiration for this month.

I am off to do some of the dreaded H word ……..housework :-( !!!  We have visitors at the weekend so I better get on with it I suppose!!!!  We have two French Gymnasts coming to visit as part of an exchange programme so we are hoping for nicer weather than today!!!  It will be fun catching up with our friends from Chalons who we haven't seen for 4 years.  Last time we relied heavily on Google translate to get us through the weekend!!!……Though we did find that 'Shall we go to McDonalds for tea?' need no translation at all ;-)  I am thinking as one of our Gymnasts Thomas was quite good with his English back then, now he is 17 he may well replace the translator this year.

Callum is back on crutches so he will not be able to compete this weekend - I am wondering just how good sport is for you as he seems to go from one injury to the next.  Rugby and Gymnastics are not the most delicate of pastimes I suppose!

See you again tomorrow with another Video for the Rubber Dance Colour Challenge post.  Have a fun week if you are having an Easter Break over the coming days/weeks.

Thank you for popping by X
