This is a new challenge for me. I found Linda Ledbetter through the Gingersnappers. There's quite a few gals over there who participated in Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenges. When I found Linda's blog they were coming to the end of that, but I was lucky enough to see Monday that she's starting Grungy Monday. It's always fun to get in on the ground floor of something so I decided to jump in. Grungy Monday is about celebrating the techniques of Tim Holtz. I've been collecting some more Ranger products so I think I'll be able to follow along pretty close.
On this tag there a only about 4 things I had to improvise on: the backing paper on the heart with wings, the letters and spotty stamp, and the round tag at bottom with the heart brads. Everything else is Ranger. I followed the instructions pretty close also, I just had to move somethings around because my letters turned out bigger than I thought they would be. I'm not always the measuring girl (lots of eyeballing, guess they are a little blurred today) :-)

Beverly, I'm so glad you discovered the Grungy Monday challenge. Welcome!!! Your tag is just wonderful-- it's a brilliant re-interpretation of Tim's original, and so beautifully designed. I love the cheerful colors and the happy sentiment.

I hope we see you again next week!
