Fairy Tale Tag

After some very unseasonably warm weather this past week, we finally have a return back to Fall.  I am loving the crisp, cool weather.  On my agenda today is making a nice big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup with fresh, warm bread.

My post this week features a tag I made awhile back.  Everything used are older items from my stash, so I'm not sure where they came from.  I do know that the flowers are a combination of Prima, Recollections and Spare Parts.  I began by covering a tag made from a cereal box with K&Co papers.  A doily was placed next with the fairy tale like image on top.  I surrounded that with some trim and a string of pearls.  A piece of lace was glued to the bottom on the tag.  Next, all the various flowers were placed around the image.  A hemp bow, ruffled lace, Prima diecut leaves and a pearl were tucked among the flowers.  A piece of lace trim was tied to the top.

I did have another piece of lace attached across the bottom of the tag but didn't like how it looked.

Well, that's it for me today.  I guess it's time to put the summer clothes away and bring out the fall ones.  At least, I'm hoping summer is finished making an appearance this season!  Thank you so much for your kind comments and for taking the time to stop by.  Wishing all a wonderful week ahead!
