First Day at School Tag

I've done a craft tonight that I've never tried before, a multimedia tag:

I was just browsing my google reader and spotted this post by one of my favourite artists, Dina Wakley. She has a fab blog called Ponderings and has just started on the DT of (Lord) Tim Holtz!  Do have a look at her site, for some fab tabs using Tim's products. 

Here's further details of mine:
I used napkins, paper scraps, a frame die cut and even a bit of our twirl painting from yesterday.  I then added rubber stamps, distressed the edges and wrote the lettering with my Uniball white pen.
It was a fun project to do and I shall have to do one about the other son or they'll be arguments! ;-)

We enjoyed our Bank Holiday day at Hatton Country World and it didn't rain! Was a teeny bit nippy though but it didn't spoil our enjoyment.  Whilst my MIL was minding the children, watching the sheep racing and taking them around the maize maze, I snook to the shopping village.  It wasn't as crafty as it used to be {blast} and the only crafty equipment they had was for children.  I still got a few bits though:

Two canvas pencil pictures for my craft room (one is a noticeboard), some girly stickers and a posh letter 'N' for decorating.
This was just £8 (its a discount place)
..and this was £6.  I figured I couldn't make one for cheaper..

Hope you've enjoyed your Bank Holiday.
Thanks for reading and for any comments you may leave,
See you tomorrow,
