Tag, you're it!

Hi All, I am so excited to be a guest designer over at Gloria Stengel's Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge this month.  Gloria has a fun challenge using our hoarded items, boy I have lots of those!   I hope you pop over and meet Gloria and her talented design team they are such a sweet group, you will love them, so come join the fun. Thank you Gloria for inviting me to be a part of this too.






Gloria Stengel's Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #11 Tag, You're It!
Use a tag on your project. Create a handmade gift tag. Create a tag mini album. Add tags to your scrapbook layout or your card. You may use some hoarded tag-shaped packaging or you may cut tags from scrap paper using a die cut template. Maybe you hoard shipping tags of all sizes. As long as your project contains some sort of tag, you will meet the requirements to play along!
It was so much fun digging through my stash looking for some hoarded items to make this.    The little fishes and seaweed are from a scrapbook border I bought 2 years ago, the string goes all the way back to 2000, when I first started playing with paper.  The beads in my shaker are part of a grab bag of jewelry find I bought for $2.50 because I wanted the dice for DD's classroom.  I used a plastic box for the shaker that had some really old hardware pieces in it.  For my papers I used an old set of Gecko Galz Beachy Keen papers and 1 new piece from La Isla Bonita Papers.  My sweet little beachcomber is from a Gecko Galz July 2013 free newsletter collage sheet.  I cut the tag on my Zing using a die cut design from Krewella Kreations.  Well that's it, thanks for stopping by and thank you for your sweet comments too.  ~Diane
