Tim's 12 Days of Christmas Day 5

Can you believe it we are already to day 5? Before I post the tags I wanted to share a little funny. My 3 year old son helped me pick up the Mr. Potato Head and when we were done he wanted his usual high 5. So I put my hands up and he went to give me a double high 5 and suddenly he stops puts his hand on his hips and in the most discussed voice says "mom" points to the kitchen sink and says "wash" This is what he was seeing. I got to laughing and just about peed my pants.

Okay, so now onto the tags

Here is where you can click on the link below the Tim's Tag to be taken to his blog for complete instruction.

This is my version of Tim's Tag:

I really like the way this tag turned out but those numbers gave me fits! I didn't have any of the Utee Ulta Thick Embrossing powder so I used just regular and applied it really thick, well I think I must have gotten it to hot because it bubbled and stayed bubbled never really smoothed out like Tim's did, but oh well, in person it looks like I painted over rusted numbers. I also didn't have the right colors of the distress embossing powder so I used distress stickles instead, which turned out to be okay. I was missing one of the leaves that he used so I put my flower on top of some leaves that I had because it just needed a little something. In the picture you really can't see the sparkly fluff either but it's there. This was the first time I used that product and I think it could become habit forming. Another thing I didn't have was the styled label so I used my cricut to cut one off of the Storybook cart. Well guess that's about it.

Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by, I really do appreciate all of the lovely comments and encouraging words.
