Too Much Excitement ...

Tag Number 11 today... I created it after a very fun Wax Class with some ladies -- we did the last of the "leaves" class today as the snow has started to fall and leaves are getting far too scarce. Oh well ... Hope the girls enjoyed the last of the leaves of the season -- and playing in the wax too, of course!! *smile*

This tag was fun!! Some of you might recognise the "make your own stamp" technique that Tim taught today -- I used that technique at ScrapFest Oshawa's Crop Room Make in Take. IN FACT, Cheryl Sue used the stamp I gave them for that make in take in her variation of Tim's Tag #1 ... I thought that was sooooo cool!! Anyhoo, I digress :)

I didn't make my own stamp here .. I did use one of Claudine Hellmuth's Foam Stamp Sets instead. I love the one boarder stamp that I believe is in the Doodles Pack -- I really must check that out ... I think it works well here. The Trees were from that Seasonal Grunge Set that used before (and that has come in VERY handy this year) I embossed with Distress Embossing Powder and, instead of Flocking, I used Ranger's white embossing Puffs for the snow. Did the trick ..

Hope you like the tag cause it almost didn't happen today -- I got locked out of my back room -- THANKS WANDA!!hehe We had to break into it -- I am happy to report we must have all been good little girls in our youth because we couldn't pick the lock... even though Kelly just had to keep trying while I tried to take the pics out of the hinges....

Eureka!!! The pins came out okay.....


BUT... the door was wedged right in there... and I couldn't pry it open with my limited tools -- my tools are kept in the back room of course -- we did what we did with jewelry pliers and setting tools - OMG ... hysterical!!

So...... Amber went and got her hubby and his tools.... VOILA!!! He doesn't look as happy as I was to see that door give way! LOL
THANK MIKE!! I could get to the back room once again!!!!! And you saved the 11 Tag of Christmas ... and my bursting bladder!!! LOL
Hope you're all having a creative weekend!! One more tag to go .... Hopefully sans drama :)

Well like it says on the tin - or in this case the tag - your little work of art is utterly joyful! not so your experience with the jammed door, or maybe it is a funny thing to look back on, looking forward to tomorrow to see what everyone makes of the final tag xxx
