tag your it...

Sorry about not posting all week folks. Had a bunch of drama here in our household, even beyond our normal drama. I fried the hard drive on my computer, don't ask me how, I haven't a clue but since it is my only computer you can imagine that I was just a tad bit annoyed. Anyway long story short I ended up fixing it mostly myself since no one could fix it quick enough for me to fulfill my design team responsibilities. I can say that I learned a lot but that is not an experience that I wanna repeat, if you know what I mean! And let me share a tiny bit of wisdom with you. If you do not own an external hard drive for your computer, run don't walk to your nearest store and buy one, then back it up frequently! Seriously I would have lost everything if I hadn't had one or I would have to have paid someone a fortune to try to retrieve my data. Yes it still took me 2 days to get everything fixed,reloaded, updated and tweaked but I am back in business! Then just when I think things are good and I can finally get some sleep again instead of sitting hunched over my computer, two of my kiddos came down with the H1N1 virus. They are doing alright (though I am a little concerned about how this will effect Manny's asthma) and it is likely that their older sister had it last week so we are just waiting for everyone else to get sick. I am running around like a nut, wiping down all the surfaces and yelling at anyone to wash their hands! Well enough blah, blah, blah and on to what you really came here for...

Todays Kraftin' Kimmie's challenge is Tag Your It! I used the super cute Posy image to make this card and I added a clear acrylic Tim Holtz tag, held down by the cutest flower brad.
What I used:
Kraftin' Kimmie's Posy

Basic Grey urban prairie designer paper
Tim Holtz clear acrylic tag
