Fly Shabby Chic Tag


So, I am beginning to think that May is the busiest month of the year for me, besides December!! I feel like half the month is gone and I don't know where it went to!! How many of you moms and wives are saying, "Oh girl, I hear you!" 
I have been to so many school awards programs, events, and social events, that I could be at home, alone for about a week and be quite happy :) Not only that, but I cater this big event at my son, Draven's school every December and May, and it just really takes up every spare second of  my time. So, I seem to be last minuting everything in my life right now, and one of those is the tag swap that we are doing over in the Scraps Of Darkness/Scraps Of Elegance Forums. I finally managed to pull it off, and created a Shabby Chic, Fairy themed tag using this month's Scraps Of Elegance Kit-Yesterdays. Thank goodness, Mel gives us such gorgeous kits to work with, because this busy mom had only about 30 minutes to pull this one off!! The tag is for my swap sister Helena (Willea). Thank you Helena for your patience, and I hope it was worth the wait!


I used some of the, oh so yummy Prima Fairy Rhymes paper from this month's paper add on for the front and back of the tag which is a Scrapmatts Chipboard Tag from my DT stash with them. I then layered on one of those delicious Gina's Design Doilies, a punched layer of kit paper, then painted a small piece of the corrugated board from the kit, then set some eyelets in it, and attached a little "find" piece from my stash. The little Prima Fairy chipboard image was from a past kit, and I misted some of the sweet little Prima Resist Canvas Butterflies from the kit and added them to the image. I added some stash trims to the bottom and the center flower is from this month's Floral Add On. At the top I made a bow from some crochet lace and hand dyed seam binding, then took another piece of the Prima Resist Canvas, misted it and glittered the letters. 

I had so much fun making this tag and I hope Helena loves it!! Thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to drop by and check it out! I know I am behind on lovies right now, but I promise that as soon as I get this event under my belt, I will catch up :) Hugs, ~Renea
