Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - March & Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter to all my bloggy friends!! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend!! I was able to sneak into my craft room yesterday to create a tag to play along with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016. One of my resolutions was to play along every month and so far, I'm three for three :)


I pretty much followed Tim's instructions HERE. I don't have any of the new Distress Crayons yet, so I used Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin. For the cut-outs, I used


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - March


2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Thanks so much for stopping by!! I wish all of you and your families a blessed and happy Easter!! Big hugs :)

Your Mar tag Butterflies are bee-utiful. I have the TH Brights Distress crayons and found them a bit difficult to use the first time on the tag I made and mine has more of a woodsy look than a bright look. Have a BEE-utiful Easter!
