A Family Tree!

SSS31810 You know when you see something ... and you immediately know exactly what you are going to do with it ... well that is how I felt about Lord Tim of Holtz's Branch Tree Die.

You know Tim ... the man that can single handedly save the rain forest in his lunch break while regenerating the Tiger population with just a scrap of Grungeboard and a squirt of alcohol ink.

Anyways ... back to my family tree ... I say my ... we are not actually a well photographed family so I have had to pinch the piccies from Lord Tim of Holtz's Lost and Found stack. I am planning on a Halloween version ... which to be fair ... is more likely to resemble some of my family ... But don't tell them I said that :0) SSS21810

The frame is one of The Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts ... the Fence is one of Lord Tim's new dies and the stamps are all The Wendy Vecchi of course.

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Anything But Not a Card this week ... and there is another shopping spree to be won ... so what are you waiting for ... Go!

Actually ... don't go quite yet ... leave little ole me a comment first ... does n't have to be long ... relevant ... or even polite ... I just like to know you have been :0)

Have a good week y'all

Laters!
