Tags using Crafty Secrets

Well as you can see I have plenty of time on my hands so I decided to put some of it to good use. One of my friends saw my tags when I was doing Sharon's birthday bash day and she called & asked if I wasn't going to use them, that she would be thrilled to have one. Well being the nice lady that I am I decided to do a couple and ended up with 14 so far. I plan to send some to DD Julie as she is really the package wrapper in this family. Her gifts are wrapped like those you see at one of those fancy exclusive shops and I always hate to tear them open. These are easy and fun to create using Crafty Secrets journal pads and also their wonderful cotton scraps. I like to use my different Spellbinder die cuts to make them a bit more interesting. I added different ribbons, some bling, and a bit of glitter here and there fini !
My dear friend Clara ( the one who is in her 90's) fell and broke her hip and was put in a nursing home so I am going to visit her today and hopefully bring some laughter with me. Love that old lady ! Happy Sunday and I'll see you all soon.

Just said a prayer for Clara! Your tags make me so jealous, I could just scream (which I did), but it did not help with the jealousy...rearing it's ugly head. However, to make up for my green eyed monster, I have ordered these Crafty Secret Journals and Scraps...Take heed, I will probably CASE these beauties!!

I hope a good dose of Pat put Clara well on her way to getting out of that nursing home. Great tags, even if you are rushing the Christams season a bit. Maybe that's why I like Julie so much. I believe in WRAPPING my presents, too. Happy September!
