Fall Flowers

Hey there crafty friends!  I hope you've had a most wonderful weekend and are off to a good start on your week.

I don't know about everyone else, but I ALWAYS have a song in my head and it changes as soon as I see or hear something that reminds me of another song.  Even if it's a song that I can't stand, it will stick until another decides to take it's place.  Well, today I have that little rabbit from Alice in Wonderland in my head running around and repeating "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date".  I haven't seen that movie in years and I don't know if that is his line, but that's what is spinning around in this crazy ol' noggin of mine since I am running a bit behind.  Sigh...!

This week at Going Grey with Scrap Creations the theme is FALL FLOWERS and I have for you today, my DT inspiration project which is a tag.  This is another first for me since I have not yet made a tag to submit into challenges.  I rather like the idea of making something that you can just attach to a gift or adhere to a card base and add a lovely sentiment inside.
I have colored up this beautiful Wizard Tilda with my Copic markers and added some dimensional glaze to her glasses to make them stand out a bit.  The tag was cut using my Spellbinders dies and the layout was inspired by a sketch and also by the sentiment that I've added.  I have distressed and embossed pretty much everything and then added lace, ribbon, twine, gems, pearls, Stickles and a charm to finish it off.  The detailed recipe can be found at the bottom of the post.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look around.  I really appreciate each and every visitor and comment.  Your words have been encouraging and uplifting and I cannot thank you enough.  Have a fantastic day and even better tomorrows!
♥ Laura C.
