I made this little mini album from Basic Grey's Errie collection.  After watching Marion's video, I just had to give it a try.  Prima flowers adorn each page, they are such a yummy orange them!  Thickers were stamped and covered in Crackle Accents.  The Martha Stewart bat punch saw some action as I used it multiple times on each page.  Each tag has tule and netting tied at the top.
All in all it was a fun mini to make.  I was quite proud of mysef for completing the project!
Here she is:
My goal:  work on more artistic photographs.

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

Hiatus Over...

I took a long break from blogging, but am back at it!
I just wanted to take a few minutes to share some projects I have been working on recently.
There have been several swaps I have wanted to join FOREVER.  Recently, I participated in the tag swap at Stephanie's blog Here.  I am so excited to see which tags I receive! 

My friend Michelle suggested going to this forum and join a tag swap.  So, I did!  I made the following tag for the swap (sorry for the picture quality - bad layout!):

This is the front view:                                       Back:
I started with a 3 3/4" x 6 1/4" shipping tag and embellished it with the following:
Paper:  Le Romantique by Graphic 45 collection (front) and the Making Memories Ledger paper pad (back)
The tag was spritzed with Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist and inked with distress ink in Tattered Rose.  The flower on the front of the tag is from I Am Roses.  Love...Love...Love the flowers Bunma carries.  Fantastic!  The rose was Misted with Tea Rose and Wheatfields.  A lace doiley was created with paper and lace to ge behind the rose.  Addes some guinnea feathers and an Adage ticket from Tim Holtz.  There is a vintage photo I found online as well as some Diamond Dust, a doiley, pearl trim and more baby roses.  The back of the tag was simple and I just created a pocket using one of the small Celebrate It bags from Michael's, it measures 2 1/4" x 4".  I stamped it with an Inkadinkado damask stamp and added another feather and flommer misted two Prima flowers with Vintage Pink and Creme de Chocolate Glimmer Mists.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic day and I'll look forward to sharing more with you in the future!
