Guest Designer ~ Jo's Scrap Shack

Welcome Bloggers!
I have been selected as a Guest Designer for Jo's Scrap Shack

My challenge for this guest spot: Use Tim Holtz products to create a project. 
I decided to make a tag using Distress inks and here is the result of the background for the tag and the finished product.

This was a fun tag to create and took less than 20 minutes to whip it up! A man in my life will have this tag attached to a package at Christmas. Easy peasy ~lemon squeezy!

The link to the tutorial for making tags as demonstrated by Tim Holtz is below in my recipe.
Why not give it a try and also, stop over and visit Jo's Scrap Shack where she has a blog challenge - you will be happy you did! 

Thank you Jo for the opportunity to share a Tim Holtz Tag with your readers!

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a blessed day! ~ Gail ~
