Starting off the New Year right!

It's been awhile since I've crafted just for the heck of it.  I haven't had much energy so what I was doing was for the design team obligations (which I love, I just didn't have any energy to do much else), so things around here have been neglected a little.  This weekend I've found my energy again (or maybe it's coming back now that I'm past the first trimester!) and I've decided to take up the Tim Holtz tag challenge.

Every month I see his tags and think I need to try it for myself.  I never have until today!  It was so much fun trying out some of his techniques.  I don't have all of the distress products, so I've substituted some as I went along, but boy it does make me want to go shopping ;)  The first substation was the tag size.  I didn't have the #8 tags, so I went with the #5.  Much smaller, but I still made it work!

Here's my tag:
