TIM'S 12 TAGS OF CHRISTMAS 2010 - #7

What a marathon of a tag today. Phew!
I was given the opportunity to do what I do best - open my perfect pearls UPSIDE DOWN.
Why do I do that every time??? The stuff got everywhere and it's just about impossible to get it back in the pot.
Anyway, I gave today's tag my best shot by improvising.


I didn't have the sticky-backed canvass, but did have a sheet of canvass digital photo paper. I cut pieces to the sizes stated and sprayed them the best I could. I then ran some grungepaper through my Zyron and stuck the canvass to that. I don't have the embossing folder that Tim has used so used a Cuttlebug one instead. I found it really hard to make my flower look anything like and am not happy with it, but I suppose it looks better than my poinsettia plant which has now only got 2 red leaves!!!!
Here is my tag then. I hope you manage yours today.

You've made me laugh, I always open mine upside down too, but even though it's been a bit of a trial for you I have to say it was certainly worthwhile, your tag is gorgeous.

Oh! the Perfect Pearls trick - my favourite! LOL. Nearly as good as throw half a pot of Actimel over the tags you were going to photograph -Oh yes I did!!I didn't know something so small could wreak so much damage - all over the edge of other stuff too:( Hadn't the heart to do today's-may try tomorrow.
Your tag looks great - well worth the time spent!
Love, Chrisx
