#5 of 12 of 2012 ...

Pin It


Happy Monday, stampers ... hope your Father's Day weekend was long and wonderful!

Today's tag was created for Tim Holtz's "12 Tags of 2012," June edition.  For Tim's stepped-out tutorial ... or a look at his gorgeous tag, clicky HERE.

This tag qualifies for a number of fabulous challenges ... for a complete list, please see the bottom of this post.  And for the down-low on all of the product I used to create this tag, please check out the Tag Recipe, below.

Sooooo, this weekend Sheila's family ... including Reid-the-Wild-Child ... came over for dinner.  As we sat down to eat, Sheila reminded the Wild Child to say a prayer before eating.

"I don't have to!"

"Of course you do do," Sheila insisted.  "We always say a prayer before eating at our house."

"That's at our house," Reid explained, "but this is Deb's house and she knows how to cook!"

Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me!
