Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 - April

Howdy! Today, I am proud to show you my Tim Holtz-inspired tag for April 2015. The reason I am proud is that Tim has finally convinced me to turn on my sewing machine and use it! I have not been on speaking terms with this evil monster for ages. I was working on a project (a couple of years ago!) and just could not get the stitching to work out right and finally gave up. The machine (through no fault of its own, as we have now discovered) has been sitting under my desk ever since. So today, after some serious soul searching, I thought it was time to bury the hatchet and give it another go. After DH and I worked on it for awhile, we discovered that I was not threading the machine correctly. Oh bother! Once this minor issue was corrected, I practiced on a couple of scrap paper things, and then, lo and behold, SEWED ON MY TAG!!!! I felt like Tim must have felt on a video I saw of him at CHA earlier this year. He was challenged with demoing a tag without using ANY BROWN INK. Tim said: "Not gonna lie. I'm breaking a sweat!" Ha!

As always, if you would like to see Tim's tutorial for this month, click here and be amazed.

So now that you know the back story, here is my tag. I hope you like it! Peace.
