Free Alpha and Chain


I am really happy with this alpha. I have some piccies of my son and his friends over at the Barracks with DH checking out the trucks and stuff from school holidays last year. I wanted to have an alpha tag (I love using monograms) and so I used the cast pewter action from Atomic Cupcake to make them, I had to add a layer to get the indented letter a bit darker, but still see the detail. But I am really happy with the result. So I called it Boot Camp and made the tag for that, because lets face it there is a boot camp for everything these days, so that might be useful to others. I also added the Love Mum/Mom tags because I do like to “sign” a lot of the pages in my kids books, and it is a reminder that those serving have Mum’s who love them very much. The thing that took the longest was scanning in and extracting the *&^% chain. I think I owe the swear jar a bit of money LOL. I eventually got them the way I liked them, one open ended to go around wider things, and one crossed over to come through narrow gaps. The frame is not included in the download (trust it is BIG enough – sorry dial uppers I didn’t check the file size until I realised how long it was taking to upload), but I will upload the frame with some other RUN stuff I am making with my son over the next few days. You can download here, and let me know what you think.
Best wishes,
Erika (the action-a-holic)
