Happy Friday bloggers! I'm so excited this morning because we just had our first Tim Holtz Caribbean Cruise meeting to plan our excursions for the September trip! Jet-skiing, Skyride, Parasailing and the Treetop Adventure Tour. Oh my gosh, we are going to have a blast!
Okay, so that photo of us planning our excursions was a little posed. Here's our happy smiling faces afterwards...
From left to right are Charmin, Tamra, Jo Ann, myself, and Sherry. Missing from our cruise group is Dotti who is up in Atlanta for the summer.
I wanted to make something fun for our kick-off meeting and what better way than to utilize the Grungy Monday challenge this week and make a fun cruise tag?
You can check out the Grungy Monday Challenge #14 over at Studio L3 hosted by Linda Ledbetter, who I hope it going on the cruise too. Linda?
This week's challenge is Tim Holtz's March 2008 technique showing us how to create our own pearlized distress mist. Check it out here. Tim shows you step-by-step as he creates a fun tag, so be sure to check it out.
Meanwhile, heres my cruise tag...
I used several Close To My Heart stamp sets (Jungle Leaves, Ticket Tags and Horizon), plus Tim's compass stamp which is a single wood mount stamp plus the flourish in the background from his Artful Flight set. That flourish is done with the Snowcap White Dabber, like Tim shows in his tutorial.
Here are a few close-ups of the details...
I made one for each of the cruisers. I cannot wait for this cruise! I know we are going to have a fabulous time together.
Thanks for checking in today. Enjoy your weekend!
