Easter...plus a week!

Hi there!
In the midst of my last batches of essay-grading, exam-planning, pie-making, laundry-doing, yard-working and roller-derby-bout-preparing (!), I managed to make some Easter tags for my family -- and yes, I really did make them LAST week! Blogging just fell to the bottom of my list, so they're going up here a little late :)

Here's my last-minute, throw-'em-all-on-the-floor pic:

(click for a closer look)

Grabbed a bunch of Honey Pie scraps (a three-year-old Cosmo Cricket collection that I still think is really cute), die-cut some cardstock tags (spring moss and aqua mist from pti - yum), added a paper rosette (Tim Holtz die), die-cut border (new pti die), and buttons to each, along with some super-quick stamping (spring jar fillers and retro bkgds -- also pti).  Ribbon, twine, and I called it good. And quick.

Oh, and in the centers of each rosette I added either an epoxy shape or button made with my new button and shape-making tools from Epiphany -- won 'em on the CK blog. They are fun, and even more fun, they were free!

I have a stack of other projects to post...and I will, soon. Soon-ish.

In the meantime, I'll also be prepping for the big ol' Mega Meet next weekend -- look for me and my projects at (who else?) Scrappy Chic's booth! I'll be there Friday and Saturday -- if you are, too, stop over and say hello!

Have a lovely Sunday.

Oooh, so jealous of your epiphany shapes! They look so cool! I love that little chick on the paper, too. These are just the perfect tags!

Such cute tags! It's so much fun to make something with just paper and not think about photo placement and journaling for a change. We'll be at Mega Meet on Thursday and Friday, so I'll be sure and stop by to say hi!

Your tags are sweet! What a fun new tool if you can make fun epoxy shapes like these.

LOVE these tags! I love the lines to the right of the sentiment, the fab papers, those beautiful medallions (?) and perfect buttons. AWESOME!

Emily said your first bout was today, how did it go? I'm sure you NSO'd up a storm! Which part did you do?
Our seson opener was yesterday, it was close but we won. Yay! Have a great week. :)
