Adventure is Out There!

For those of you that have watched "Up" you will recognize that quote from the movie. Since it is one of my grandsons fav's (and ours too!) we watch it... a lot!  I thought that would be the perfect sentiment for my tag bookmark using one of the new releases from Tiddly Inks:

I love to read and I don't know why I haven't made myself a bookmark yet. Well, I do know.. lol! I am one of those dog ear people. I always fold down the corners of the pages.  But I NEVER do that to a book a friend has loaned me and right now I am reading two that fall in that catagory. So.. tonight she will get put to work. 
Tiddly Inks has some new papers and digi goodies that I used for the background on this. I layered the text, some gears and then on top of all that my cute image. I also added a few of my own customs brushes and tubes from my own software (I used PSP7).
Here's some close ups:
Here's the copics I used:





The stamp and papers are both from Tiddly Inks. Everything else was from my stash. 
All that's left is to get this linked up in some challenges : )

Challenges:
Tiddly Inks - Tag or Ticket Me
Tiddly Inks - Sample Show Off Challenge
Digi Doodle Shops Best - Anything Goes 
Papercraft Star - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Create a Tag

OMG! I just love this tag, Dana! The image is really cool looking but I love the deep rich colors you used on it too. They just add so much depth and dimension, even without any embellishments at all... it really pops.

Hugs,
