How I made my May Tag

I love being apart of Arlene's tag swap! For the month of May, our tag theme was beach and super dimensional. When I think of the beach I think of my recent trip to Hawaii!!!
I hope you enjoy this video, it's a peak into my creative process on how I created my "Beach" tag.

Some Tags I've Worked On

Thought I'd share a couple tags I made for two special ladies.
I love creating tags and sending them along in the mail with my swap stuff. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into organizing swap trades and putting together kits to trade. This is just my way of saying Thank You!

This tags was created for Arlene. I glimmer misted the background in a few different shades of pink. Distressed the edges. Added a TH stamp that I distressed. Finished it off with a handmade vintage lace lollipop flower I made (and sell in my Etsy), some feathers, prima roses & pearls and a cute charm.

This tag was created for my May swap partner at the beach, Rosie. I glimmer misted the background with some homemade GM in shades of purple I also sprayed it with Old Lace GM. I printed off two images from the web and inked and distressed one, and cut out the dancer. I added diamond dust to her beautiful dress. I then finished it off with an assortment of satin and prima flowers trimmed with lace, and a charm.

A Poem for me

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I wanted to share a Poem my daughter wrote about me and presented it to me in front of her class for Mother's Day.

I love You

My mom is sweet
I love her.
She is like the flowers
I love my mommy
so much so much

She was so excited to share her sweet poem about me.

I also got a ton of handmade goodies for Mother's Day, including photo cards and a photo pot holder. Hmmm...I see future scrapbookers! It must run in our blood! he-he!

I feel so blessed and loved by my three little kiddos!

MIA and an Update

Long time no blogging!!!
I've been MIA for awhile, but I can explain. Really I can!!!

In-laws came to visit, than left.
I got super duper sick, which I'm still sick, but not as bad.
Went out of town while I was sick, to a retreat. Came home still sick.
Wrapping up end of the year school stuff. (where did the year go?)
Finishing up swaps and trades.
Creating and re-stocking my Etsy shop.
Did I mention I'm still sick!!!

Here's a peak at some of my new flowers in my Etsy shop.
