Live the Dream

Hello my sweet friends..
I have been so busy I start a tag on Monday
can you believe I am just now getting it done.
It is so funny how I was so happy to be off work..
More time to play in my craft room.  But that hasn't happened 
yet..   Oh Well I do have sweet little thing keeping me occupied..


Man do I just love this little guy!!


So about my Tag..  I am playing along in a new challenge for me..
It Grunge Monday...  hosted over at Studio L3..  I know some of you have
been playing along with Linda (Host of Studio L3) all along.. 
I have been watching and just love seeing all the wonderful Art that goes 
on over there..  It's all about TIM.. Yep the one and only Master of Grunge..




To play along you just follow the technique she has post.
It's one of Tim's Videos from April 2008..

If you want to check it out you can go HERE!



I had a blast making this tag..
The technique was to use clear embossing power and then use
Dark paint over it an rub it off so it stains the paper that was not embossed..
I must admit I used distress ink instead of paint..



Lots and Lots of distress ink..

A punch flower with some of Tim's metal leafs..


So that is my tag.. Lots of fun.
You should play along..  You have till Monday!

To see all the other entries or to get all the details 
on the challenge you can head on over to Linda's Blog and


Thanks so much for stopping by..
I do hope you enjoyed your visit..

Hugs, Linda

You may not have been grunging along with us from day one, but no one would have guessed it by this loveliness! Your tag is gorgeous and I love every inch of grunge! Wow! I love this weeks challenge, but I have been busy and probably won't make the cut! The little one is certainly as cute as can be and I know why G-Ma can be slightly distracted! Have a lovely weekend!
