National Scrapbooking Day_My First Tag Book_LONG POST...Lots Of Pictures

For National Scrapbooking Day, I worked on my first Tag Book. I'd actually finished the basic book earlier this week, but yesterday was spent adding lots of details.

The theme of this tag book was Grunge - so after some quick You Tube and GOOGLE searches, I jumped in. Since my upcoming cross-country trip is on my mind, I decided the theme of my book would be Trips, aptly titled Life Is A Trip.

This was done for a swap on Art For The Creative Mind yahoo group. This group is a swapping group, so there is always something going on. If you want to stretch yourself and swap - this is a group for you.

A tip: For the pockets that held the mini tags - I used manila folders to cut out the pockets. I also managed to cut out 5 large tags from one manila folder .. and I am sure you can get at least 10 smaller tags from one manila folder. So, if you don't' have any tags from the supply store - use a manila folder.

Thanks Jan. I haven't ordered from House Mouse in a long while, but she has some adorable bear stamps in addition to her usual Mouse themes.

Since I'm not a grunge lover per se, I had to throw a little cuteness in there!!LOL

OMgoodness! Kenyatta, I am just in love with your tag mini album! I love the theme - how cute for your upcoming trip and I just love your ink distressing and love, love, love that bear in the car - girl, this is amazing! I added your link to Mr. Linky so that the other DT members could check you out because this is amazing! If you ever think about putting this to a You Tube video, please let me know because you have so inspired me and I know you'll inspire many more because I've not seen one so beautiful!
