Birthday Tag

I have a close friend that I get together with as
often as I can and scrap.  We have sooo much fun in
the process.  She had a birthday during the month of
May while my oldest son was in the hospital.  Since I am
now able to play again, I decided to make her a tag and a little
photo frame to go along with her gift for her birthday.
I sure hope she likes it!

I love the way this tag came together.  I went through my 
scrap paper and pulled out paper that appealed to me.  I 
notice there is some Pink Paislee, an October Afternoon journal
card, some blue shimmer paper, white card stock 
and I see some Paper Studio, My Minds Eye, 
some glitter paper and even a scrap of my favorite paper
....CHART Paper!  
Then I looked through my dies and pulled out a few that I 
thought I could use on this tag.
It is for a birthday right??? You really need some
things such as balloons and candles.  
So here is a list of tools and product that helped 
me make this "BIRTHDAY TAG!"

One project done...and one to go....

Now for the Photo Frame:


LOL...just looking at this photo brings back the fun time we
had scrappin' at a Teresa Collins event.  Oh Scrappin' makes
me sooo HAPPY!  
For this project I used scrap paper too!  I really like to save my
paper collections for mini books. That way when I work on a 
large book project, I know I don't have to search for paper that's all there in the collection.
