Flashback to...


.... the very first scrapbooking crop I ever went to. Now mind you, this was many years ago. I had no idea what to take with me, not much knowledge about scrapbooking in general and as a result, found myself sitting at a table with nothing to do.
There was a die cutting machine available to use - the old Big Red Sizzix - and so I found myself happily cutting. I decided to make tags and that's what I did most of the weekend.
I put the tags into this small book, cleverly titled Tags, lol. The tags are very simple and over the years I've thought about throwing this book away. However, I'm glad I kept it and I think I will add some new tags to it. I know that my style has changed a lot since that first crop!
Link up over at Flashback Friday - the challenge is the first tag you ever made.

I still have that Big ol' Red Sizzix. LOL. I am trying to wear it out. I also agree with Amy. I think an evolution of style is a great idea!! =)

I still have all of my old stuff. They make me laugh and it is so much fun to go back and see how we've all grown and evolved.
