DSC00622Here it is the last day of the month and I am just getting my tag made for Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2014!!  It has been a little busy here this month….daughter came home from Mexico with 15 days to unpack, repack and move her to Chicago where she will be a freshmen at Moody Bible Institue, son moved back to Newport News to begin his sophomore year at Chistopher Newport University, we are packing up our home of 20 years and moving into a very small apartment for the next three months and then moving to FL….so with all that on my plate I almost forgot to make this month’s tag.  I didn’t have all the goodies that he included in this month’s tag and since I waited till the last day to pull it together, I didn’t even have a chance to order them or go out and buy them.  Using what I had I created this tag.
