A 'Tim' layout

Well, it had to happen, I just got my Photobox order,so decided to scrap the photo of  Mr Holtz and 'lil old me.
I ordered some of the lovely new Prima range and they arrived too.One of them just seemed perfect to me (after trying the photo on a dozen different backgrounds) I went back to the first one I liked!

I thought I might add a couple of close ups...I always like it when other peeps post close ups - so thought I'd give it a go as well......
I wanted to make it a bit 'Tim-esque' (is that a word?) so used some of his letters from his 12 x 12 pad..I also made a bit of a tag.I used some of Wendy Vecchi's new stamps that I bought at the class -amongst other things...I never thought I'd see a spider on one of my layouts ! I used a bit of a mix on here - some Graphic45 paper as well,and some tissue tape on the tag - love that stuff now. One of the new inks I've just bought is Crushed Olive and I've used it so much.I'm getting a bit worried about myself using so much green- I normally don't use it at all.!
And now - I've been a bit naughty .....and bought one of these ...

It arrived this morning and I can't wait to give it a try. I've not had a Big Shot or any of those so it should be fun.. Enjoy your weekend everyone..
