12 Tags of 2012 My April Tag

12 Tags of 2012 with Tim Holtz

Whew... I did it ! Okay, I was VERY frustrated because I did not have all the supplies for this tag ( I know... I know , I could use what I had... BUT I WANTED what Tim used) so I sulked for a couple of weeks. THEN I decided I would not do this one...NOT !! Okay so I hunted around for the die and embossing folder EVERYBODY WAS OUT ... another week seriously sulking now. HOW COULD I "Tim2" not do this tag...simply unheard of ! After falling over my bottom lip a few times, I finally went out to the Queendom and pulled out things I thought would work... you see the date right? What can I say I'm a serious Tim-a-holic !! So this is what I used Birds, Flowers & Branch Set  (Sizzix 656503), the bird from Caged Bird (Sizzix 656634), I did not have brushed corduroy embossing powder so I used brushed corduroy  distress ink on the branch and then mixed vintage photo and tea dye embossing powders on top. Hadn't gotten word bands yet either , sooooooooooooo I dug in my stash and found the
celebrate ribbon label ( Making Memories). I figured this was an appropriate label for me to use... I'm celebrating because I "survived" not having what I wanted .  I did do the techniques, they where quite fun. I'm still telling myself, "It's not that serious" ... BUT IT'S NOT WORKING... I'M A SERIOUS TIM-A-HOLIC !!!

Family Game Day

Nate and Jayden play game.
Oh so cute to see Jayden "concentrate" on those games. He is serious about his  cousin's games. He's not two years old yet but he knows how to  push those buttons.

Wouldn't this make an awesome "Queendom" ?

Gorgeous House/Office

I saw this while I was walking to the Hilton (Pasadena), it was on the opposite side of the street, But I just had to have a picture of it. I've always loved this building and even more since they remodeled it.
I dreamt this would be an awesome "home" for the Queendom! Wouldn't you agree ?

Mini Baby Album

I don't recall what this album fold is called, I scraplifted the idea a couple of years ago from Shop Hop. I do love my mini albums they make great gifts. This was the other part of a baby shower gift. I made the bag and card previously from the same paper.

OK , I had fun with this!

Yay! I Finished a project I started last year. A mini baby album made from DCWV Baby Boy Stack. It has the most adorable paper and I absolutely love these colors.

Decorative Crosswalk

Okay... Have you seen this? I seriously felt like I  should  get out of my car and get out my distressing inks ... Lol ! The pattern reminded me of one of Tim's ( Holtz of course) background stamps. I had to laugh at myself for such thoughts... But can't you see that with some color and a spritz of perfect pearls??

A Loving Message

So much love she had and gave to all of us; her family, her extended family and her church family.
Even in her passing, she left us a loving message. A loving classy lady! " Her children arise up, and call her blessed... Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. "  ( Proverb 31:28-30 ). Hallelujah !
