Twelve Tags of 2015 challenge. I was a bit daunted when I first saw Tim's tag, as I haven't got any of the lovely Word Block Dies. I'm also running low on Ideaology bits and bobs. Still, I see this as all part of the challenge, it makes you put your thinking cap on! For my die cut background I used Tim's Typeset Alphabet strip die. As I use a Big Shot die cutting machine, I was able to cover the last inch of the tag with a thicker piece of card in order to prevent the die from cutting through the bottom of the tag. The cool looking dude in the picture, is my ' Uncle Jim'. He came to England from Nigeria, at the same time as my dad, in the early 1950's. They were best friends and our two families spent a lot of time together as we were growing up. They remained firm friends throughout their lives and sadly, they passed away within a year of each other. I love this picture and have welcomed the opportunity to use it this month's tag. x
P.S. Just been having a look at this month's entries, wow.. there are some fantastic interpretations!
