Day Three of Creative Chemistry

Woot Woot!!
I finally got time to play!! I finished Day 3 and I am hoping to start of Day 4 before I run out of steam tonigth.
This was fun tonight, as it got me digging in my stash of inks. It's been a long time since I pulled out my Archival Inks! In fact, some of them I've had for more than 10 years as you can tell by the labeling and the hinged casing! Most of them didn't even need re-inking even though I have some bottles of the re-inkers too.
Here's a shot of PART of the pile I had on my desk when I got through. I've managed to put most of it away, and started pulling out what I need for Day although this mess it gone, it's been replaced with another one. So now I'm off to play again!

Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101

I finally got some play time and was able to at least complete the assignment for Day 2. Looks like I won't be able to play any more until the weekend and the class will already be over. But I've been learning a lot and enjoying looking at all the fun stuff everyone else has created.
I can't wait to get inky again!
Had to take a quick snap with the time to dig out the big camera tonight.

Getting Inky tonight!

Decided I needed to get a bit inky tonight, so I dug out my stamps and inks and FINALLY got to work on my March Tag for the 12 Tags of 2012 that Tim Holtz is doing on his blog. 
It's already half way through the month, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he does for April. is the tag that Tim did and posted for March.

I didn't have a woodgrain stamp for my I started digging through my stamps to see what I could find, and found a wonderful oversized stamp by Stamp Out Cute that I've had for years. 
I think it made the perfect background for the butterfly

I can't say that I'm really in love with the butterfly, but I was trying his mosaic technique.  Don't know that I'll use it again on anything as it really isn't my style...but it does look pretty good once you get all the bits and pieces on the tag.  I actually made two butterflies but there was only room for one on the card, so I'll have to figure out something to do with the other one.

I actually got into my stash and USED my Tim Holtz Idealogy Foliage metal flowers and leaves.
Now I need to find a cute way to display all the fun tags I've been making.  I've got a picture tree on my desk at work and for now I think I'm going to take them there where I can enjoy them each day. is my card .....

You can check out Tim's blog's always full of inspiration!

 Well, it's time to call it a night.  I've got a busy weekend ahead, and a night out tomorrow night with my hubby.  We are going to go see a friend and listen to her music at a local Bistro tomorrow night!  Yea for date nights!!

Sneak Peak...

Here's a little sneak peak of a mini-album project that I'm working on.
Can't show the inside yet because it's a surprise gift for someone and they don't know about it yet.

Now...I'm off of here to get a bit inky before I have to go pick my daughter up from school.
One more day until the weekend!
I am hoping to finish up this little book, 
get pictures made 
and get it in the mail!
