Tag and President's List

I am so excited. I received my President's List letter today from school. After three semesters I am still holding a 4.0 GPA. I was so scared to go to school and now I wonder why I did not do it sooner. It has given me confidence, allowed me to meet some wonderful people, and has given me a sense of accomplishment I had never had. I was a wife and mom and although I knew I was good at that I felt that is where my accomplishments ended and now that feeling has changed. This tag I made really says it all....."The Journey Awakens the Soul". Yes it does!!

I started out with a bright white tag. Distressed it with Martha Stewart "walnut" ink. I then stamped the background using the same ink (I stamp once on a piece of scrap so the image would be light). I then stamped the remaining images with Memento "Tuxedo Black". All stamps are from Tim Holtz. I added some off white ribbon that I distressed.

These Tim Holtz stamps were sent to me to give me some supplies to start creating again after loosing all of my supplies. I must say I adore them! The designs are so fabulous and they are really easy to work with. I hope you like what I have done with them.


I am entering this in the Sundays With Crissy Challenge; things with wings, Anything Goes Challenge Blog; Colour Combo (black and one other color) 

Until next time.....
