Meljen's Designs - Tag challenge

The new challenge this week on the Meljen's Designs blog is tags. Kind of funny isn't it? I was just mentioning how tags imtimidate me and I have another DT project using tags. This time I decided to go with it. I used one of the images just released yesterday to create a tag to add to an altered container of candy corn to give to my daughter's teacher for Halloween.

This is my tag! Isn't this little witch cute! I was even able to recycle by adding some cardboard from a box that was in the basement.

Here are a few more pictures of my project. I decorated the top of the jar using Meljen's Stitched Fan Flower which was a freebie on the blog a few weeks back.

Thank you for looking! I hope you will join in the Meljen's Designs tag challenge.


  • Images: Cutie Sitter Witch & Stitched Fan Flower (freebie) by Meljen's Designs and Halloween Ticket Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs (both artists are available on Whimsy stamps)
  • CS & Papers: Close To My Heart Olivia DP, Georgia Pacific CS, misc. green, brown, vanilla, olive papers
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Chocolate
  • Tools: Cropadile, Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestablities, Copic markers
  • Embellishments: Scrap cardboard, Old Paper Ranger distress crackle paint, large eyelet, raffia, PTI bakers twine, misc. buttons, jar, & rick rack

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
