Tag Tuesday Challenge #47 -- Inspire Me!


This week's tag challenge is to use a quote or a word even that you find inspiring.  That should be relatively easy.  And at the same time it will be nice to check out everyone's tag and be motivated and uplifted!

I used a quote from one of Tim Holtz' new stamp sets -- which goes so well with his new line of paper.  One more thing about this new Tim Holtz paper, Shabby Vintage, I've been raving about.  Pam inquired if I was going to be purging myself of any of the pages I don't like as I shared previously I usually do when I buy a new paper pad.  Well, there's not one sheet in this pad that I would even consider getting rid of.  In fact, after making the tags I made the last two days with it I found myself saving scraps from this paper in a way I never have before.  This stuff is gorgeous!

Lovely tag and a nice theme - its a long time since I've done any crafting either but I found a quote which struck a chord with me at the moment and became inspired.
