October Tag! :)

Are we hitting the fall season already? WOW! This year is really trekking by. :) School has started for both of my kids and I seem to be busy almost everyday. Between Football for Jon, Preschool for Sasha, harvesting and freezing (I am so NOT a canner!) veggies...not to mention cleaning or TRYING to clean my house and keeping up with that stuff....I am pretty sure I know where my time is going.

THANK GOD for the Halloween/Fall Tag Swap I joined that is being run by my friend, Jenn. :) I have known Jenn since middle school. I have fond memories of her and how she was as a kid (Those were the days.) She always seemed to be mature in those days (not that she wasn't) that is what drew me to her. I have always loved people who seem to know things about the world and things I love and am interested in. :) Jenn seemed to know a lot about music and doodling...this is what I remember. :) I also remember she thought I was a sweet girl and I remember thinking....I trust her. Which if you know me.....especially as an adult...this was HUGE. :) Anyways---because of Facebook we have gotten to reconnect and we have so much of the same likes and dislikes....the funny thing? She still knows so much more about the world than I do. Of course, I like my shell and to be comfy in it. :) Of course, I have my bestie, Becky...but her and my family are really the only ones I let in and to really know "ME". But Jenn is safe because she has known me for what seems like FOREVER. AND...WOW...she still likes me! HA! :)

Ok....Well, because of Facebook we are able to see what each other is creating and making. In August, Jenn created a Tag Swap for those of us in Great Falls who wanted to join and create for the love of creating. I JUMPED at the chance to join her. :)

At the time I also joined a card swap that took time and then I started all the little projects in the house that I have been wanting to finish. So, getting the tag done took a back seat, but I was always thinking exactly of WHAT I wanted to create. :)

This is what I came up with:

I used Tim Holtz for Ranger Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Dried Marigold, and a little bit of Shabby Shutters. I stamped the Tim Holtz Skeleton Image with Staz-On in Timber Brown. Then I sprayed some Clearsnap SMOOCH Spritz in Gingersnap on the tag and image. I let that dry and took some leaves from a little collection I got from somewhere and attached them and then took the "October" and "31" from Maya Road and attached them. The last thing I added was Bling which is just a ME thing and those were from Michael's Dollar Bin. :)

Thanks Jenn so much for letting me take part in this swap! :) ((HUGS)) And thanks to my followers for reading and for those of you who comment...Thank You. I read them and I love what you say! :)
