TIM HOLTZ May 2015 Tag

I can't believe I am able to make this post today.
My oldest son Will was in the hospital for over
3 weeks in this month...
(this is another story for another day).
I can't tell you how good it feels to be HOME!
So whenever I can, I sneak down to my happy place...
My special place where I lose ALL TRACK OF TIME!
I feel so BLESSED to be able to create..I know I
have told you how happy it makes me...
So on to the topic of my post:
TIM's May Tag
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE creating vintage projects.
I have tons of family history projects just waiting for
me to work on!  This is my second love after working
on my own immediate family projects.
There were quite a few products missing from
my stash in order to create this tag. I didn't worry 
about it because I knew I wanted this project to have
special meaning for me!  I didn't want it to be a
"technique" tag.
I had this photo of my mom that has always been a favorite of
mine.  She had it made for my dad early in their relationship.
I already had it in my I just reduced the size and
printed it out for this project.  So now that I had my photo
ready, I just had to gather my embellies.
The only product that I used that was the same as Tim was 
the train and dance ticket, The TYPO Stencil and the base tag.  Everything else
is different.
You can check out the products Tim used on his tag and

I think my mom does "SPARKLE" in her photo...
She definitely looks  "HAPPY" here...

at this tag..and I think she is going to love it....
But I am not going to give it to her...
