Love Monster

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I spent mine just trying to catch up on sleep and relaxation after an incredibly busy week. The weather here in the Northeast was summer-like, hitting 80ish yesterday! It was a great weekend to get outside and we found ourselves a nice farm on Saturday where we could go pumpkin and apple picking and let the kids see some farm animals. Fun times (and I managed to not cook one meal over the entire weekend - BONUS!)

A huge thank you to everyone who left comments during the Operation Julie's Smile blog hop. I'm hopeful that the small donations along the way will help Julie fix her emergency dentist issues. I also wanted to mention another hop that is taking place today for Katie Renz. For those who do not know Katie, she is battling cancer. It's a heart breaking situation and the entire family could use your support and prayers. You can read about the hop and Katie's story here (the hop is sponsored by I heart Papers.)

Now on to today's creation! A tag featuring stamps by Paper Smooches! I created my tag by using the Tim Holtz large tag die (love that I can create a large tag in any color!). I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder to emboss the tag and then use white ink to highlight the embossed areas. Tissue tape (also from Tim) was used as a ribbon in the background and then I added the designer paper (notebook die from MFT), white circle, and spotted monster! I should note that the stamp, included in the Falling For You set, does not include dots. I drew those in after I colored the monster and then filled them in with a white gel pen. Buttons are from Papertreyink and twine (a perfect match to my monster!) is from Sweet 'n Sassy.

Enjoy! And thank you again for all of your wonderful comments. Please be sure to check out the Katie Renz hop as well...
