Like most churches, The Church of Christ at Logansport has a group just for the women, and young ladies. Our group is called The Ladies Friendly Circle, which meets just once a month. Each of us tries to take a turn hosting unless there is a visit planned to one of the three area nursing homes, or we plan a special event for others. Since those things take up half the meetings, that leaves only 5 or 6 other months to host.

By the time anyone sees this, TAG No.2 will already have been posted to Tim's Blog. But if you have a different fave of the three here; you are more than welcome to let me know! :D
Thanks for checking in and esp for reading through this long posting really meant for just ONE Tag for the month.

I started out with a video explaining what I did to get the finished project, and added some photos below the video. This will give you a chance to see details both ways. Enjoy!

I'm getting somewhat 'caught up' on alot of things- and I'd like to say I've won the Leaf War of 2014 (current Battle Score being 3-2 with the Leaves ahead of me...simply because I conceded that 2nd battle when I slipped and fell flat on my....gludius maximus), I only have a little more touches of using the blower and being the confident, victoriously celebrant person I am; I think I can safely say I came out Tops.
So while the usual WET Halloween came and went, I did some serious cutting in my Studio with the Birthday Picks the ChiefHubby let me order from JoAnne Fabrics' great sale. I chose carefully over the stock because, while I am always on the lookout for Tim Holtz's new items, I am still currently filling a few of the discontinued items that just never seemed to make their way into Indiana. I've not been let down and was HAPPY to find a new one AND an old one....WEEEEEEE!!!! :D
Very HAPPY to find ALOT of these items now in stock in both JoAnn Fabrics and Hobby Lobby of Lafayette, IN ! I certainly complained to them enough on every visit with a huge *sigh* of "WHY can't I find anything NEW that Tim Holtz has out since it's all so POPULAR, but your store doesn't carry much." said with a lost puppy dog look. ;) And, thanksSOmuch! they have brought in TONS of it finally! But there are still alot of the dies that they only sell online because of shipping costs. So I try not to waste any money on shipping myself and wait for that to be "FREE w yaddayadda Purchases" or special sales. Why waste money on S&H when you can get one more item for that same amount??
|Before we show the finished- I noticed that my inside papers seemed to be UPSIDE DOWN. Is this normal??|
|Here's the backside of the Cover Page Tag out of the plastic so you can appreciate the details I did to each number. The odd items just make the third 8 look like it was 'working' into an 8. ;) Sorta the way my MIND works in that sudio....??|
