December Daily, Creative Accents Challenge and Tim's First Tag!

Wow! How long has it been since I've posted anything?!?! almost a month!! Crazy I know! And I'm totally behind on my DT stuff too! I thought that having my husband gone away at school for 3 months would make it easier for me to spend hours downstairs in my craft room at night, but I have been finding that with hubs gone, so is my mojo...Sad I know ;)

Anyway, I can't believe it's December 5th already!!!  And that means it's time for another Challenge at Creative Accents! We've made it a really easy one this month...specially if you're getting any Christmas cards or layouts done...You've guessed it:

For my challenge piece I used my cover for my December Daily album. I actually got this started way before December 1st, but I've been slacking off in the December Daily area too...I need that mojo back! Tonight I hope to get downstairs relatively early and get a whole bunch of stuff done!

I can always rely on Tim Holtz for some major inspiration, so it couldn't come at a better time that he's doing his 12 Tags of Christmas! This year I decided to play along! This is the first one, and I didn't stray really at all from the original design. I made it on a day when I was having a major lack of sleep meltdown and I actually just left my mom with my kids and went to Creative Accents to play with a few girls while we all made Tim's Tags! I wasn't much into being creative, so this was perfect! I just followed it exactly, still made something, but didn't have to think much about it! And I looove all the fab techniques he shows you! be sure to check it out if you haven't already!

Here's Mine: 

And Here's Tim's

I'll be posting more of my "12 Tags" in the next few days hopefully! And hopefully I can get my December Daily caught up too! It's not too good when you start out behind! haha

A little note from Tara( CA owner)...
Normally on the challenge blog we award a prize to a random winner... and we're doing that this month as well, but IF we get more than 10 entries, we'll also award another prize to one participant selected by members of our Design Team! Our random prize will 'grow' dependingon the number of entries... starting with a 6x6 pad from one of our fave paper companies.Watch for more specifics on the prize next week, but for now... get out there and create something for Christmas!
