By the SEA...I want to BE!!!

Thar She Blows!!!
Here is my latest tag using the newest TH dies plus a few of my favorite things!  I absolutely love having free time in summer to go hog wild creating tags!  There is not a moment that goes by that I am not creating and sketching out designs!  Even in my sleep!!!  If you know me, you know my love of the beach and all things 'of the sea'! So when T!m came out with this die, I couldn't wait to own it!  I loved adding and mixing all the various 'odds and ends' ephemera that I have hoarded for so long!  A great big thank you to Cat at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks for allowing me to spend my summer days hanging out at your wonderful store creating the day away AND getting ahead of the game of tags for our monthy tag class!!!  Also...
  Thanks T!m and Mario for your countless hours of work to inspire art lovers all over!
Oh and one more thing...I get to making so many tags that it reminds me of fishing trips as a kid. I would fish for so long that when I would go to sleep at night...all I would see when I shut my eyes was the fishing bobber!  Well....replace the fishing bobber with tags...tags...tags...My brain won't shut off at night!
