Keeping the Intention - so far!

Hi Folks,

One of my New Years Intentions (don't make Resolutions cause I always break them) is to start AND continue with the 12 Tags of 2013 with Tim Holtz.  I made a late start last year, and then I don't know what happened but lots of things went by the by,  including 2012's Tags.

So here we are with January's, and for a change I did have a few of the items required, although I did still have to improvise!  However, the hardest bit was cutting into the embossing folder - as instructed by Tim -this was a first for me, although I have heard of people doing this - scary!

Just a quick one, and if you want to see the original, just pop over to Tim Holtz blog for full instructions.

Enjoy your weekend.

Avril xx

Fabulous take Avril! I cut into my folder yesterday, too. It was scary but made so much sense. Hoping I can do all 12 tags, too. Have a great weekend!
