Tag, You're It!

Hi friends!
Welcome to another Paper Issues blog hop! We're kicking off September with a new theme and...
Tag, You're It!
The 'Tag, You're It' theme inspired me to create this sweet little home decor project. I've had this shabby, vintage frame in my stash for quite a while...waiting patiently to be put to good use. Now I can't wait to hang it up!
To create this framed collage, I simply layered a manila tag, a craft paper tag, a canvas tag, a heavy chipboard tag (repurposed from a manufacturer's clothing tag) and a sweet 'layered' chipboard piece from Basic Grey's Clippings collection over a fabulous piece of patterned paper from Amy Tangerine's Ready Set Go collection. A bit of machine stitching on the original mat, a bit of cute washi tape from My Mind's Eye and a Crate Paper button added just the right finishing touches. The Basic Grey chipboard piece says 'Celebrate Each Moment.' I love that.

Soooo....are you feeling lucky?! Because we're thrilled to have Craftwell as this theme's sponsor with a fabulous giveaway! After you visit all the talented ladies on the blog hop list below, be sure to visit the Paper Issues blog for all the details on how you could win this eBosser.
