Let your dreams Soar...

Hello my friends!!
I am back from vacation and all relaxed and recharged..
We had a wonderful time and We got to take my grandson along.
OK..  Not just my GS,  my daughter and SIL came along also..
Yea!!


Here he is all bundled up probably wondering what happened to
the heat..  One day it's hot and the next day it's cold..



I have another Tag to show you this morning that I made for 
This week challenge over at City Crafters..


Kirsty is our Hostess this week and came up with a wonderful
theme..  Birds of a feather.



All you have to do is have a bird cage on your project or decorate a bird
cage.. Fun... Fun... Fun...
So on my tag I used a couple of different papers and some
of my favorite stamps and inks and paints and stencils
to get my back ground.. 

Cu

Printed up some words.  Stamped my bird cage, Used some rub-ons,
Cut out my bird and decoupage all of it when I was done..



I just love this sepia decoupage.  It gives my tags a yummy finish!
I am almost out of this finish and can't seam to find it anymore.
I Love it so much I am going to see if I can find it on line
somewhere..


So there you have it..  Another fun week over at CCCB!
You should play along with us.. It's a fun challenge.
To get all the details or to see what the other DT has come
up with you can hop on over HERE!

I am also entering my tag into Kristen's challenge
The Summer of Color
This weeks color is Yellow..


Thanks so much for stopping by my friends.
And thanks sooooo much for all your sweet comments,
They really do make my day!!

Till next time!

Hugs, Linda

I don't know where to look first. That tag is beautiful and the baby boy is GORGEOUS! So sweet and innocent wrapped up in his jacket ... how can you ever put him down? The tag is just fabulous. I've not used Sepia finish since I was very young doing decoupage at my daddy's workbench - thanks for the memories!

Catherine said...

Glad you made it home safe and sound Linda! And how wonderful to be able to spend the time with your family. Lovely tag ~ that is a very cool technique.

Happy Tuesday!
