Sepia and brown

I would like to say a big thank you to you all for last weeks comments, they really meant a lot. I shall attempt to leave comments on your lovely works of art this week but I shall probably have to do them in instalments. My head is still a little bit fuzzy. Ok who said wasn't that normal? Chuckle.
Like a few of you I immediately thought of old photographs for this week and rummaged through my stash to try and find one. I came up with this lovely photo of a schoolboy. Doesn't he look an angel? Butter wouldn't melt I don't think, bet he has frogs and worms and string in his pocket

 I found some more bits and bobs that went with a school day theme and stained the tag with all my brown distress inks then mounted the photo with some corners and a ruler and pen nib.  I captured a part of a pictorial alphabet that said Boy and an ABC in an ornate plate. The words 'in the moment' seemed appropriate as he looks as if he has mischief planned!
I have even managed to finish my last Christmas tag so they will be in the post soon Carolyn, should be with you by next week.
Have a good week everyone, big hugs. x
