And here we are with Sir Tim!!! We all had the biggest grins that day and all thanks to Sue who arranged this fab trip for us!! Sue (who unfortunately wasn't quick enough to get next to him in this photo - well it was every girl for themselves!!!!!) was formerly the owner of Paper Paradise and has become a really good friend - her talent for altered art is amazing. Days before the shop closed I made my hubby Steve take photies of all her work that was on display. She really is an amazing artist.

And yet another one - this time Sue got in there first. How she managed to keep that smile whilst I was thumping her in the back for getting next to Sir Tim is beyond me!!!

And the best one saved to last - just Me and Tim!!!!! Yes this one is on my desk at work!! right next to one of me and the hubby!!!!

Thanks Sue for organising all this - Thanks Sam for driving us there and back in such bad weather and thanks to my hubby Steve for taking all these fab photies of us all.

Inspired by Sir Tim ! ! ! !

Did I mention in my profile that I had met Sir Tim Holtz ! ! ! well this is what I created from the inks, grungeboard and paper that I had bought that day from Art from the Heart (nearly £150 was spent - oh well, money well spent in my opinion).
This was created using grungeboard wings, stars and hearts from the Elements pack, a luggage tag, gold eyelets and an old music book. Everything was inked, the luggage tag was stamped with the verse "To hear the Angels whisper you must listen with your heart" (taken from the Creative Expressions range). Everything was then glued and assembled on mount board except for the luggage tag - this is removable and sits nicely behind the sash which is attached by eyelets.
