live the life you've imagined 41

Hi there! I'm so excited that this weekend is FINALLY here! My 26 year old dear son, Jerry is marrying his sweet and beautiful sweetheart, April :) I'm pretty sure all the loose ends are tied and now we just need to make it through the rehearsal before the big day! I'm hoping Scott will capture a few photos at the wedding and if so, I will be sure to share one or two :)

I had some time to play so I made this tag using a variety of some fun products. 
To create this tag, I started with a blank Ranger tag, applied various Distress paints, added texture using a Tim Holtz stencil and molding paste then embellished with a beautiful blossom that was made using Spellbinders Tattered Blossoms dies. 
I finished it off with a die cut chipboard butterfly which I added texture to as well then painted using gold paint:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Imagine you had a wonderful weekend with such a happy family occasion! This tag is just stunning, Mona! Just dawned on me that maybe I should try working on a tag--not as overwhelming for me. I have stencils & paste & paints & even the Tattered Florals die, so I'm going to see what I can do using this for help. Thank you!
