Yesterday I shared this LO over at scraplagret blog. 

It´s about my summer of firsts… The first time I ate Ice-Cream out of the box, being alone at the beach, caring for my kids  and also some partying… as a single mom. The first of everything..

Tag it!

I have been at home with two sick kids.. and with kids big enough to enjoy themselves with TV, video games and board games, I have had enough time to actually sit down between the fights and create.

This time I had an Idea of creating a masterpiece LO,,,, but somehow the mojo didn´t appear.. so it ended up as tags instead.

They can come at handy when I need a quick and easy gift tag.

The tag didn´t take loads of time.. but it gave me a bit inky fingers.

I used distress inks to color my tags, I used the darkest at the edges and the lighter at the center. Then I added my stamps with black VersaMark, and added some color touches with distress markers to the stamped image.
