Tim's 12 Tags -- Day 3



I'm loving these tags of Tim's!!   They are incredibly designed -- and leave so much room for you to add your own touches or change things up as you need to.
It was only as I tried to reproduce his background that I saw how many layers and how much detail he adds to things.  
I had his bird die and I also had vintage greeting he used from his seasonal paper pad.  (Can I just take a minute to say that his seasonal paper pad is the most fabulous set of papers I have ever seen.   Out and out my all time favorites!  I will have to have one I'll use and one I'll just keep to look at:)
I also chose to create a pinwheel flower for my tag as I had just been making some of these the last few days and had it handy.

Like that telephone in the background on the first picture?  As I was walking this morning around the neighborhood (I like to go early when it's still dark out) I spied it in my neighbor's trash. (ETA:  I didn't actually go rummaging here, I just spied it sitting on top of the newspapers in the recycle bin.)  I scooped it up, brought it home, cleaned it up a bit -- and now I have a super cool retro phone for my office.

Love your tag, I thought today's was just brilliant, and you have interpreted it beautifully. Do you often pick things out of your neighbours trash then?!!

Your tags are lovely Louise! And the retro phone is cool too. One man's trash is another man's treasure!

I love knowing that, every morning I get to wake up to Tim's tag, as well as yours! I love the rosette - perfect spot to use it. And, I can't believe you scored that phone! I'm totally jealous.

love your tag Louise,especially the pin wheel flower, must have a try at them. Collecting the phone from your neighbours trash is exactly the kind of thing I would do, the best kind of recycling !

Great tag, Louise! Love the rosette you created. Isn't if fun finding a treasure you never expected? Some of my most treasured items are things that cost nothing or next to nothing;) Fabulous find!
